  1. Log into Moodle using your NetID and password  –  https://moodle.queensu.ca/community/course/view.php?id=59
  2. This should bring up a screen that gives an overview of the Expanding Horizons workshop series with 2 links, one leading to the descriptions of workshops in our website, the other asking you to ENROL.  Click the button to ENROL.  You will not need to do this step again.
  3. This new screen should be showing the 5 themes within expanding horizons and listing below them the workshops available for the current term.
  4. Choose the workshop, click on the little man icon to go in and sign up for that workshop.

The next time you log into Moodle, the Expanding Horizons course should show up in the Moodle Community Listing. You need to sign up for every workshop you wish to attend. Find the “Face to Face” icon at the bottom of the workshop description. Click on this to open up the "Sign up" page. You will only be able to see and sign up for workshops in the current term.

If you have participated in an Expanding Horizons workshop before then you need to follow these steps:

  1. Log into Moodle using your NetID and password  – https://moodle.queensu.ca/community/course/view.php?id=59
  2. In the dashboard you should see SGS_001 Expanding Horizons in the "Moodle Community" block.  Click on this link.  If you don't see it type the workshop in "Search all courses".
  3. The screen should now be showing the 5 themes within expanding horizons and listing below them the workshops available for the current term.
  4. Choose the workshop, click on the little man icon to go in and sign up for that workshop.

If a workshop is full, email Colette Steer at the SGS at steerc@queensu.ca.   Colette will monitor how many students wish to attend and if needed find a bigger venue, so that you can all attend.

Students may add to or cancel their registration for a particular workshop at any time. There is no cost, but sign up is required in order to track participation, as well as to determine eligibility should you wish to go for the certificate in professional development. If you need to cancel, please do so early, so that others can sign up. In many workshops, numbers are restricted to the size of the classroom.
