Retirement course (Third Phase)

Life is for living and while some enjoy the leisured freedom they have always prized, others grasp the challenge of new interests, or find it rewarding to utilise a lifetime of knowledge and skills to contribute to the community or generate income.  All these issues and more make up this friendly, interactive programme led by experienced Focus for Change presenters. It might be helpful to consider these questions:
  • What do you really want from this next and most rewarding of phases?
  • What are your priorities?
  • How will you adapt to this major life change?
  • What will be the daily structure?
  • How will you use the quality time available?

Developing an eye for accuracy - New course

New CSED course aimed at staff whose everyday work requires them to read, check or transfer data.

The training programme is designed to help people learn to read, check and transfer information quickly and accurately. Participants typically achieve a 60% reduction in errors and a 7% increase in processing speed. That means a significant and measurable return on the training.  Using a combination of written, audio and visual exercises as well as group discussion, you will practise tried and tested accuracy techniques and learn how to apply them to your work. More information...

Online Induction Module for new UEA staff - NEW

An online Induction Module for new UEA staff is now available.  The Module gives a general introduction to UEA including the various departments and schools, history, vision, structure, facilities and services, environment and sustainability policies.  It also contains a welcome video message from the Vice-Chancellor and has links to essential information.

Although not mandatory (and there are no tests to complete) new staff are encouraged to work through this as part of their Induction.  It complements the face-to-face Introductory Morning event to which all new employees are automatically invited by CSED.  The Module may also be of interest to many existing staff.

To access the Module the user should go to the CSED home page at https://portal.uea.ac.uk/csed then in the left panel click on E-Learning & Mandatory Training - the Induction Module is the first one in the list.

All existing staff already have access to the Module, and new staff will be added when they start at UEA.  A UEA username and password is required. A user guide to UEA staff e-learning can be found here: http://bit.ly/LU_userguide

If you have any questions about the Module please contact Steve Oldfield, Staff Development Officer, CSED (ext 2393, email s.oldfield@uea.ac.uk).
