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.

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 email@example.com).
