Welcome to the SHMS Training Academy Hub. The Academy was assembled to guide you through the platform and to provide a space for learning about OER.
The Training Academy consists of 2 Live Sessions and 4 Levels of training. Each level includes a set of modules. We have designed these modules to first spark the learner's interest in the topics covered and then dig deeper into the content through presentations, storytelling, and demonstrations of the tools. We will offer opportunities for learners to practice exploring the resources and tools, and reflect on how they might use them in their work. Participants who will be site administrators of SHMS will also take part in our Admin Training Course once the aforementioned 4 levels are completed.
