ISSS Advanced Workshop

ISSS Advanced Workshop

The ISSS Advanced Workshop is a 4 hour workshop designed to help staff explore the tools offered in TDS for tracking, auditing and managing SEVIS data. Participants will learn how to best utilize TDS tools such as SIS Refresh, RTI-Connect, Query Watches and Reports to manage SEVIS and SEVIS-related data, query, report, alert and audit to maintain compliance, keep students and scholars in status, and Student Information System records in sync with SEVIS. The conclusion of the Workshop will feature an active working session coached by Terra Dotta staff.

This workshop will assume attendees are familiar with their TDS site configurations and internal office processes. The workshop will be a mix of lecture, demonstration, and hands-on practice. During the lecture/demo sections, material will be covered in an intensive-format learning environment, so attendees should bring energy and enthusiasm for a fast-paced and fun workshop. During the hands-on sections, Terra Dotta staff will be actively involved with participants to answer questions.
