Training & Professional Development
Our goal is to design and deliver high-quality, accessible training and collaborative learning experiences for all employees’ professional development.
Developing World Class Staff
As detailed in our approach to learning and development at Rice, OPD strives to develop and offer learning experiences and resources that meet the needs of a diverse range of positions, learning types and the overall rapidly changing landscape of workplace learning.
Whether a classroom-based, online, social, etc. learning format, development experiences should be relevant, applicable to one’s work and provide hands-on practice of skills. Additionally, transfer of learning on-the-job and intentional coaching should be encouraged in order to maximize retention, change behavior and achieve results. See Developing Staff at Rice for examples of development options.
