Teach an Interdisciplinary class in-load



As you make up your schedules for summer and fall 2023, keep in mind the new opportunities for faculty to teach interdisciplinary classes as part of their regular course load.

Here are the details: In May 2022, the Provost's Office announced a 3 year pilot program to allow faculty, who have received approval from their department chair, to teach interdisciplinary courses as part of their regular load. In consultation with their deans and department chairs, faculty may be allowed to teach at least 1/8 of their annual load as interdisciplinary classes.  Interdisciplinary courses are here defined as courses which are not part of a department’s regular course offerings and which span departments or colleges. The number of in-load interdisciplinary credits for a department in a given semester may equal up to 1/8 of the total in-load credits offered by the department’s full-time faculty members that semester.  For more info, contact Susan Matt.

Build Your Confidence to Manage Projects Successfully



With innovation happening more than ever, the new agile project economy requires more and more people across organizations to manage projects successfully. The problem is very few people receive formal training on how to do it.

No wonder 65% of all projects fail* each year!

The good news is—unofficial project managers can build confidence to lead high-value projects and engage teams in a way that inspires them to volunteer their best efforts. Join the Office of Workplace Learning for a special workshop:

WHAT: Project Management Essentials for the Unofficial Project Manager
WHEN: March 2 and 3, 9:00 am - 12:00 pm BOTH days
HOW: Register for course #300-462 in Training Tracker

Project Management for the Unofficial Project Manager combines best practices from agile and waterfall project management to equip learners with the mindset, skillset, and toolset to engage and inspire team members.

Success starts with the core agile principle of value—a project must deliver value to an organization. Once value is established, it is people who make projects successful through a consistent process.

This course will help learners:

  • Build strong informal authority that inspires project teams to consistently volunteer their best efforts.
  • Utilize a consistent process to start and finish high-value projects on time and with quality.
  • Influence and engage others to define a clear project scope, including clear deliverables and risk strategies.
  • Model openness and agility to apply proactive change management and deliver high-value projects.

This course is highly subsidized by HR and the Office of Workplace Learning. A small course fee is required to be paid using a department index, to help with material costs from FranklinCovey.*

*FranklinCovey is a member of the Project Management Institute (PMI) Authorized Training Partners (ATP) Program. This course satisfies the project management education requirement for PMI Certifications as well as Professional Development Education units (PDUs) needed by PMI credential holders.

Do you know the basics of unconscious bias?



An Introduction to Unconscious Bias 

Discover the extent to which our perceptions of social groups and how our brain organizes that information shapes our judgments about people's character, abilities, and potential.

This Office of Workplace Learning (OWL) course discusses what unconscious bias is, how it happens, and how it impacts our relationships with those we encounter in our day to day lives. By exposing ourselves to an understanding of how the mind works and what our inherent unconscious biases are, we are better able to recognize them and put into place the necessary structures in order to move beyond them.

This is an introductory course, but also a great refresher for those well-versed in the knowledge of unconscious or implicit bias.

Option for either in-person or zoom!

Register in Training Tracker for course #302-06 today!
