Training Support Analysts specialize in delivering online and in-person training sessions for faculty and staff at the FON on a variety of educational and educational technology topics. They play a key role in ensuring that resources, guides, and tip sheets are up-to-date and available to faculty, staff, and students. Examples of how they support FON success include meeting with new faculty to help orient them to TLO services and connect them with what they need to know to get started in their role as educators. They also organize, plan and deliver numerous workshops on topics such as Google apps, productivity tools, and the ever-evolving features in eClass.
