Today’s learning opportunities come in a variety of forms and styles, with something to suit every learner. UBC encourages all faculty and staff to further their professional and personal development by taking part in any of our learning and leadership opportunities.
Starting April 15th 2020, we will begin transitioning UBC workplace learning and internal training courses into one central place – the new Workplace Learning Ecosystem (WPL).
Workplace Learning Ecosystem (WPL) is a one-stop online catalogue for UBC internal training and professional and personal development opportunities and programs. Starting in April 2020, you can search for, enroll, make and process payments (where applicable) and complete and track learning courses and training all in one place.
WPL is for UBC employees and supports UBC internal training and learning opportunities and programs including orientation, wellbeing, professional development and required courses.
