Why we chose to partner with LinkedIn Learning
LinkedIn Learning is an award-winning online education industry leader, with a digital library of over 16,000 courses, covering a wide range of topics that encompass equity and inclusion, technical aptitude and application, leadership, mindfulness and more. Courses are accessible 24 hours a day, 7 days a week from a desktop or mobile device allowing for self-paced, on-demand learning and will be integrated through My.IllinoisState.edu.
Lifelong learning reflects Illinois State University’s core values, and LinkedIn Learning offers content aligned with Educate Connect Elevate: Illinois State – Illinois’ First Public University Strategic Plan 2018-2023.
LinkedIn Learning also offers tremendous potential for managers and employees to create development plans as part of the performance review process. Effective leaders are committed to developing their people and they fundamentally understand that supporting a work culture that promotes learning and development requires ongoing personal commitment and access to resources. Human Resources is working with a team representing a cross-section of faculty and staff from all divisions to also review, recommend, and cultivate learning modules and sessions that will soon be featured on the LinkedIn Learning homepage.
