New Learning Academy streamlines professional development
It’s about to get easier to discover and participate in development opportunities here.
If you have participated or are interested in participating in development opportunities at Cleveland Clinic, your efforts are about to get easier.
These three leadership development areas are integrating, which will make choosing and registering for courses more convenient:
- Office of Learning & Performance Development (OLPD)
- Cleveland Clinic Academy (CCA)
- Nursing Leadership Education (for leadership development only)
Together, they will form Cleveland Clinic Learning Academy, and all caregivers at all levels can participate in learning opportunities.
How the integration benefits you:
- One-stop shopping to view courses
- Common online registration process
- Focused career path tracks to guide course selection
- Common core competencies for leadership training
- Core and elective tracks
The integration also will eliminate redundancy in development opportunities, thus ensuring our designated development funds go further.
Register for fall courses
Most courses will be on hiatus until September to prepare for the integration. If you’re already registered for a course or are on track for a series of courses, nothing will change for you.
In mid-August, we anticipate releasing the integrated catalog, and you can begin registering for fall courses. If your Individual Development Plan (IDP) goals or Annual Performance Review (APR) goals require coursework, you can begin fulfilling those requirements in September, when courses resume.
Some leadership programs unaffected
The Foundations of Healthcare Communication course, organized through Cleveland Clinic’s Center for Excellence in Healthcare Communication, along with Leading in Health Care and Serving Leader are not affected by this integration. In addition, the schedule for the Emerging Leader program will be uninterrupted during the integration.
