Staff members can suggest courses they would like to teach or have someone else teach, including outside guests. To create the course suggestion the user will need to fill out the Submit a Course to Teach form.
The staff member creating the suggested course will be required to give the course a title and a date. However, they will have the ability to put in a:
- course title.
- who should approve the course.
- start and end date/time.
You can view a list of all course suggestions by clicking Course Management, Course Ideas on the Manage tab in Workshop.
As a Professional Development administrator you can make any changes to these entries. Remember to Save after making any changes.
If this course is acceptable, you can then Convert to Course which will automatically create a course and open the course so you can add/edit information needed to complete this course.
If a course is unnecessary you can click Return to Staff, this will return the course suggestion to the staff member who submitted it and all you to attach a short note that will be emailed to them letting them know why you declined their submission.
