January 2015 training

Updates from the Winter Training Event for Banner Student & Banner Financial Aid users

The last week of January, 45 UMBUG members gathered at St. Catherine University for a combination of Banner training and best practice assessment focused on Banner Student and Banner Financial Aid functionality. Topics were selected by those registered for training. By coordinating our resources we were able to deliver training and best practice assessments at very reasonable prices.

Building on last year's success with a new design for Human Resources/Payroll training and best practice assessment, registration was priced on a per seat basis allowing members from an institution to share a seat depending on the topic for the day. Participation ranged from two seats per school per day to up to 12 seats per school per day.

Feedback has been quite positive highlighting the experience level and expertise of the trainers, and the opportunity to learn what peers at other schools are doing. For several participants - slightly more than 20% - this was their first UMBUG event.
