In-Person Workshops Announcement

Following guidance from President Gabel, students, staff, and faculty are encouraged to stay home. To facilitate physical distancing and help slow the spread of COVID-19, we have moved all OED in-person workshops to an online format until further notice. 

If you have any general questions or are concerned about finishing the Certificate Program in a timely manner, please contact us at oeded@umn.edu.

What to Expect in the Registration System


You will be prompted to select which type of guest you are:

  • Self-supporting individuals: participants external to the University of Minnesota system who are paying their own way ($100/workshop, $900/all ten workshops)
  • NonProfit/Govt/HigherEd: participants sponsored by their employer that is a non-profit, government agency, or non-University of Minnesota college or university ($150/workshop, $1350/all ten workshops)
  • Business/Corporate: participants sponsored by their employer that is a business or corporate entity ($175/workshop, $1575/all ten workshops)

Once you select the type of guest and how many workshops you're registering for, you will be taken to the payment page. After you've paid using a credit card, you will be prompted to select which workshop(s) you would like to attend. Each workshop will only have 10 total seats available for external participants. If a session is not listed, that's because all 10 seats have already been filled.

Starting in Fall 2020, alumni will be eligible for a 50% discount, and we will also be offering scholarships to any external participant upon request.


After completing your selections, you will be asked to officially register for those workshops via the Training Hub system. The links and instructions will be provided at the end of the payment process.


The Honor System: Please note that this is entirely on "the honor system." Please select only the number of workshops for which you paid; please do not select more.


If you have any questions, please contact John A. Williams, oeded@umn.edu, 612-624-0594.
