Discover a new way of learning

Monday, 4 July 2016

Discover is a new and innovative staff learning and development portal that provides access to a range of blended learning opportunities for staff and enables simple, self-directed learning.

Discover will replace the training component of HRonline, and will make it easier for staff to find courses, check the training calendar for up-and-coming events, self-enrol and manage bookings, and track and maintain learning through their own record of learning.

Deputy Director of Workforce Strategy and Transformation, Tina Crawford, said Discover demonstrates UON’s commitment to enabling staff to make their mark under the NeW Futures Strategic Plan.

“UON supports you to make your mark and be proactive in your own career development by providing blended learning opportunities to build your own capability and grow as leaders,” Tina said.

Programs and courses range from Orientation for new staff, Health and Safety compliance training, Research Advantage and Teaching and Learning programs through to Leadership Development and HealthyUON. New content and courses will be constantly added to Discover so it’s encouraged staff visit the portal regularly.

Tina said Discover will streamline compliance training across UON, and enable staff to understand, access and track compliance training specific to their roles.

“In addition, programs and courses to support building compliance aligned to our UON capability frameworks is and will be added to meet development needs,” she said.

Registration for training courses and workshops through HRonline will be phased out over the coming months. HRonline will still manage employment details such as pay slips, leave and to apply for job opportunities.
