New and enhanced learning opportunities for employees

Program registration now open

September 4, 2019 — 

Over 50 workshops and training sessions are available to employees at the U of M, offered by learning and organizational development.

Three new programs have also been added: UM Staff Training Essentials Program; a career planning series; and a number of learning labs.

“We’re excited to be offering new and enhanced programs this fall based on feedback we’ve received from our community,” says Joshua Hartlin, facilitator and new media specialist, learning and organizational development.

“If you deliver training, I encourage you to register for UMSTEP. We’ve added a final capstone day where participants will have the opportunity to showcase their newly acquired skills by designing and delivering their own short training session.”

UM Staff Training Essentials Program (UMSTEP) certificate

This staff training essentials program provides a comprehensive foundation in workshop design, development, and training delivery skills for anyone who may be asked to provide training to others.

After completing the series of workshops, participants will receive a certificate from human resources.
