The University IT (UIT) Technology Training team offers opportunities for Stanford staff to develop and teach courses to the university community.
If you want to teach but are not sure how it would work, we are here to support and help you articulate your vision. You won’t have to go through any step in the course preparation process alone. With our high standards of excellence and rigor of engagement in instructional design, we strive to build a better and stronger community of learning at Stanford.
- If you are a subject matter expert and want to share your knowledge in a specific subject area, you can work with the UIT Instructional Design team to develop and deliver a course or workshop.
- If you have an idea for a training topic that you think would benefit you or your colleagues, let us know! Whatever you are interested in, we are interested too!
Your contribution can help our learners and the Stanford community to better discover and adapt to current and emerging technologies.
