Learn at Your Own Pace

Talent Development offers professional development opportunities of all lengths and styles. When it is safe to return to campus, face-to-face learning and multi-day classes will resume. Meanwhile, enjoy our Spotlight Learning/eLearning and single-day webinar selections. Find current offerings in our seasonal training catalog, under Catalog and Registration Instructions at the navigation bar above.

Spotlight Learning

Do you have an hour now and again to devote to your professional development? Our Spotlight Learning sessions are one hour long, and are offered as live sessions and self-paced eLearning courses.

Single Day Classes

Rotating classes from each of the four themed areas are offered fall, spring, and summer terms. These classes are two-three hours long.

Multi-Day Professional Development Workshops

These classes are held over several days or months, and will be noted as such in the My Learning training descriptions and learner notes. View the workshops here.

Additional Training

Many departments at CSU offer training for faculty and staff on topics from career planning to course development to computer applications. Several of these departments are on My Learning today. Contact us if you need help finding the right course or department.

NOTE: Later in the fall you will be able to register for classes from HR and Business Financial Services through My Learning as well.
