Is there a fee to participate in these programs?

Browse the Learning Library to find a course that you are interested in. After obtaining supervisor permission, simply click “enroll” on the program to view more information, then click “register.” You will receive an email reminder about the program. This reminder will include a calendar invite for the program so that you can add it right to your calendar.

How do I register for a training program?

Simply obtain your supervisor's approval, complete the on-line registration process, and await an electronic confirmation. A reminder notice will be sent to you via email, but you should add the training details to your personal calendar immediately.  If you experience difficulties, please contact the Learning and Development department at 7-2218.

How do I cancel my registration?

If you can no longer attend a training program, visit your My Learning page, scroll to the program you wish to unregister from, click “reschedule” then click “unregister.” Please note: do not worry if you notice the program is still on your My Learning page… it will be cleared off by an administrator.

What is Learning & Development and how is it different from training?

Learning & Development (L & D) involves analyzing a situation and making recommendations on how to improve a work unit’s functioning. Sometimes an L & Dintervention may involve a training program but may also include coaching, mentoring, process analysis, mediation and meeting/retreat planning and facilitation

How do I schedule a training program for my department?

If you are a unit head and would like a program tailored and delivered to your staff as a group, please contact Eric Brunner, Asst. VP, Learning and Development, at 7-2215 and we will meet with you to schedule or even design a course that is just right for you and your staff!
Can I schedule one-on-one coaching?
If you feel you would benefit from one-on-one coaching, L & D will do our best to accommodate you. If you haven’t yet, look through the course offerings for the semester and see if the workshops touch upon issues you feel you need assistance with first. If you feel you need more individual help, we'll be glad to meet with you and other people in your work unit if appropriate to help you perform at your best. Contact Eric Brunner at 7-2215 for more information on coaching.
