Learning & Organisational Development Team Activities

May 2020 to August 2020

In line with recent University communications in response to the Coronavirus (Covid-19), the Learning & Organisational Development (L&OD) team is postponing the delivery of its current training and development courses and workshops, at this stage up to and including those on Friday 1 May.

During this time we are continuing to work on enhancing our virtual and online training options. Where appropriate, we are sending through some helpful resources (reading, weblinks etc) to staff due to participate in our courses and workshops.

We will continue to follow the University’s guidance, along with Government, NHS and Public Health England advice and provide regular updates as the situation develops.

It’s important to continue to think about our own personal and professional development at this time, so If you have any questions, or if we can help point you towards some development-related resources, please do get in touch with the L&OD team: LDev@Kent.ac.uk

The majority of our L&OD activities are available to view and book via your personal Staff Connect dashboard.

In Academic year 2019/20, Learning and Organisational Development (L&OD) are taking a slightly different approach to planning our development offer which will allow us to better focus resources on the topics in demand by our workforce and be more flexible in offering timely development solutions.

This new approach includes the use of Waiting Lists for development opportunities, rather than always planning and listing a full calendar of available dates.

You will find two brief explainer videos which outline;
