Monthly Workshops Series

The PD&T team provides a monthly series of workshops covering a variety of current and relevant topics. For the most up-to-date offerings check out the HR Calendar or the monthly PD&T email newsletter.

Do you enjoy facilitating, sharing your knowledge with others, and leading training workshops? If so, you could be a part of the PD&T monthly workshop series for the upcoming academic year. This could be a great opportunity for you to present on a topic you’re passionate about. Workshops typically run two hours and are offered to the MSU campus.

If you are interested in facilitating a topic, know of someone you would be interested in hearing from, or have a suggestion on a subject you would like to learn more about, please contact Terry Bishop Terry.Bishop@montana.edu.
