What is EDU@UVM?

EDU@UVM is a three-day learning event offering more than 30 workshops for UVM employees to attend free of charge. The 60 to 180-minute sessions are presented by staff, faculty, and community members. This event brings together colleagues from across campus to share knowledge and cultivate skills that will positively impact their work life.

When and where is the event?

EDU@UVM is held on campus every year during Spring Break. The keynote is held in the Davis Center and the learning sessions take place at various classrooms on campus.

How do I register for a workshop?

Registration is required for all sessions. Visit the registration website to select your sessions. 

What's the best way to get the sessions I want?
  1. Recognize that some sessions will fill quickly, so don't wait to register.
  2. Read through the Workshop Descriptions thoroughly, so you understand what to expect from each workshop.
  3. Look over the Program Schedule very carefully. Notice that there are overlapping sessions, so you will need to be especially attentive when choosing the sessions you want to attend.
  4. After you've registered, take the time to put the sessions in your calendar and set a reminder for each one.
What about waitlists?

Sessions are limited in size based on the room and/or presenter preferences. If a particular session is full, we highly encourage you to go ahead and register and check the box to be put on the waitlist. It's not unusual for people to cancel as the event nears. If they do, we will register those next in line on the waitlist and notify them via email. If enough people are waitlisted for a particular workshop, we will work to schedule an additional session if possible.

Can I just show up if it looks like there may be an open seat?

Please only attend workshops in which you have a firm registration. If your name is on the waitlist, we will make every effort to contact you if a seat becomes available.

If I registered but I'm unable to make it, what should I do?

If you cannot attend, you may send a substitute by emailing the registration team. If unable to find a substitute, please notify the registration team in writing one week in advance. There is no cancellation fee.
Please notify us if you are unable to attend so that the registration team may enroll someone from the waitlist.
Please let the registration team know as soon as possible so that they may enroll someone from the waitlist, should there be one.

Where are EDU workshops held?

EDU@UVM is held on campus every year during Spring Break. The keynote is held in the Davis Center and the learning sessions take place at various classrooms on campus.

What if I need special accommodations?

If you need special accommodations for any of the sessions, please indicate that in the comment box on the Personal Information page during registration. If something comes up after you've registered, please e-mail the registration team.

How do I add my EDU@UVM class attendance into my personal training summary?

Navigate to the 'Human Resources' login page (requiring dual authentication) > Select 'Self-Service' > Select 'Learning and Development' > Select 'Professional Training' in order to add your professional training course.

Have more questions or comments?

We value your feedback and we encourage you to drop us a note if you have any questions: edu@uvm.edu. After the event, you will have the opportunity to evaluate each workshop in an online survey. You will receive a separate evaluation for each workshop you attend.
