We are very pleased to announce that LinkedIn Learning will become a new tool for continued learning at UW-La Crosse effective July 6, 2022! LinkedIn Learning is an award-winning industry leader in online training, with a digital library of over 6,000 courses covering a wide range of technical, business, software, and creative topics.
Launching with LinkedIn Learning is a strong commitment to providing e-learning opportunities for employees as part of the Investing in our People pillar for the University’s strategic plan.
On July 6, 2022, all faculty and staff will receive an email from LinkedIn Learning alerting them on how to activate their accounts and then access the program 24/7 from your desktop or mobile device using their UWL Credentials.
The platform allows you to watch an entire course, or individual videos—some are as short as four or five minutes. You will be able to bookmark courses that suit your interests, keep track of the courses you have taken, and when you complete a course, you’ll receive a certificate. You can refine or develop your professional skills, learn new software, and explore other areas as you plan for your career growth.
LinkedIn Learning also offers tremendous potential for managers and employees to create development plans as part of the performance review process. Effective leaders are committed to developing their staff, and they understand fundamentally that supporting a workplace culture that fosters learning and development requires continuous personal commitment and access to resources. LinkedIn Learning is one such resource that can have a major impact.
The Human Resources Team will begin working with Supervisors to help identify training paths that might be helpful for engaging their own teams in continued learning, as well as career development pathways.
As you work with LinkedIn Learning, we are very interested in your experiences and feedback.
If you have questions about Learning & Development, please contact email@example.com. When launched, if you need assistance with the LinkedIn Learning login process, please contact the Information Technology Help Desk at firstname.lastname@example.org.
