Fall training calendar offers new hybrid schedule

In order to better serve UF faculty and staff wherever they are located, UFHR Training & Organizational Development (T&OD) has created a hybrid schedule for its fall training courses. By providing this balance, T&OD hopes to accommodate those who want to experience in-person training while maintaining the convenience of virtual learning for those who are either unable to leave their office or are located outside of the Gainesville area.

“We are excited about the way we have been able to move forward to make our trainings as accessible as possible while still giving people the opportunity to collaborate with colleagues face-to-face,” said T&OD Director Bob Parks, Ph.D.

Course registration is now open in myTraining. When you register for a course, the location will be listed under the course date. Visit the Learn and Grow web site for information on the courses available to UF faculty and staff including Pro3, Gators Together and more! The fall training calendar also provides a monthly view to search for courses on your list.
