Please do not sign-up for a training workshop by phone. Keep checking your RIC email for new training sessions.

Basic Chalk & Wire Workshop

The basic Chalk & Wire workshop is designed to assist both those who are using Chalk & Wire for the first time for a specific class, as well as for those who need to learn the process for Student Teaching at Rhode Island College. Workshops are specifically designed for both students and faculty. Students will learn how to create, share, and submit a portfolio. Faculty members will learn how to access the site and assess work as both an internal and external assessor. Both kinds of workshops will also touch on the process for their respective other half.

Student Teaching Workshop

Workshops specifically for student teaching will educate new users on the basics of Chalk & Wire, and it will inform veteran users on the specific resources and processes that will be necessary during their student teaching placement(s). Student teachers will know how to create a student teaching-centric portfolio, using the correct table of contents, and will know how to upload and submit the correct materials.
