Last summer, the Office of Human Resources (OHR) launched Carolina Talent Learning, which gave permanent employees the opportunity to manage LinkedIn Learning, Office of Human Resources, and the Equal Opportunity and Compliance Office learning opportunities. We’re checking back in to tell you that a few other departments and divisions moved their training to Carolina Talent Learning. The benefit to you is that it’s easier for you and your manager to see a more comprehensive snapshot of the training you’ve completed when it’s all in one place. Here’s the latest training now available to you in Carolina Talent Learning:
- The Digital Accessibility Office (DAO) moved their growing course curriculum to My Learning in February. DAO offers training to help us improve the accessibility of the digital content we create, including websites, PDFs or Word documents, videos, social media, and more. Inclusiveness and accessibility across all learning, teaching, and working environments is a key priority for the University, and according to Chelsea Porter, Digital Accessibility Consultant, the interest in DAO training is increasing. “We recommend that everyone take Digital Accessibility Awareness course as a jump off point and then you can decide if you need more training.”
- Clery Act training for permanent employees made the move to Carolina Talent in January. The Jeanne Clery Disclosures of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics is a federal consumer protection law that requires campuses to identify and train Campus Security Authorities annually. Approximately 2,200 University employees have a CSA role, and each receives an email prompting them to complete Clery Act training. The CSA role includes many more employees than sworn law enforcement, but if you’re not a CSA, you won’t see the Clery Act training in Carolina Talent Learning. The training consists of a 20-minute webinar and a short quiz. Temporary employees and affiliates will continue to access the training from the Sakai homepage. For more information on the Clery Act visit police.unc.edu/clery/faq.
- Looking forward — ConnectCarolina training will be available through the Carolina Talent MyLearning tool sometime this summer.
If you haven’t yet used the My Learning tool, you may want to check out the New to My Learning tab on the Carolina Talent My Learning home page. Temporary employees and affiliates will continue to access training through LinkedIn Learning.
