By Dylan Siebert

Employee and Organizational Development is proud to offer numerous online professional development opportunities using K@TE, the University of Tennessee Learning Management System. All regular faculty, staff and most temporary employees can enjoy browsing more than 1,200 eLearning courses from content providers such as Skillsoft and LinkedIn Learning*.

Employee and Organizational Development has curated this content into various certificate programs. Explore topics such as “Diversity in the Workplace,” where you can learn more about unconscious bias, bridging the diversity gap and communication across cultures. “Admin Skills 101” is a great program for administrative professionals eager to perfect their skills in a variety of areas, including business writing, office and record management, event management and more. Other certificate program titles include “Navigating Change Swiftly,” “Women in Leadership” and much more. Upon completion, you will receive a signed certificate acknowledging your success.

By taking these courses, you are empowered to invest in your individual growth and professional development as a member of the University of Tennessee community. These completions automatically flow onto your HR128 transcript in IRIS, great for informing your direct supervisor how many hours you’ve dedicated to improving your skillset. The HR128 policy recommends and encourages at least 32 hours of learning and development yearly.
