New HR Learning Catalogue launches Sept. 1

New virtual and in-person training and development opportunities for Queen’s staff and faculty begins this fall, with registration starting Sept. 1.

Queen’s staff and faculty will once again have the opportunity to learn new skills and understand different perspectives with the launch of the 2022-2023 HR Learning Catalogue. The Organizational Development and Learning (OD&L) team is pleased to offer many in-person and virtual classes this fall term, as well as hybrid classes planned for the winter  term. With more than 80 offerings, including certificate programs and individual workshops covering topics like Presentation Skills, Advanced Customer Service and Project Management, you will be sure to find learning that helps you grow your career at Queen’s.

A reminder that workshops are open to all employees including managers, staff, faculty, contract, casuals, and postdoctoral fellows.

New programming for the 2022-2023 year includes:

  • Advanced Foundations for Project Management
  • Data Proficiency Certificate offered by ITServices to help revolutionize the way you work with data, Power Query and Power BI.
  • Managing Burnout Certificate for Managers (available in early 2023)

Other changes to improve programming are in the works. Detailed information about workshops will include updated learning outcomes and connections to Queen’s competencies to help staff and their managers better choose classes that fit their individual development needs. Regularly offered programs such as the Certificate in International Perspectives (CIP) and Queen’s Volunteer Engagement Certificate (QVEC) will be taken off the roster this year to ensure all offerings remain current and aligned with Queen’s Strategy. Fitness classes normally offered through the Learning Catalogue will now be administered jointly by ARC staff and our Employee Wellness teams to better serve employees.  More information about fitness and other wellness programs is available on the HR Intranet.

The OD&L team encourages all managers to familiarize themselves with the workshops available to both them and their team members. Managers play a key role in supporting ongoing learning and development for employees, something that is critical to the Queen’s Strategy.

If you are an employee or manager seeking guidance on workshops or development opportunities, please connect with the OD&L team.

More than 3,700 employees joined the Learning Catalogue programming last year, with 96 employees successfully graduating this August with one of many Learning Catalogue certificates. Visit the HR Intranet to learn more and explore all offerings.
