Welcome to Gateway to Learning
Everyone can be a lifelong learner and a lifelong participant in the learning culture that is core to the Ohio State experience. We urge you to take responsibility for your own professional development and leverage the resources available to support your unique journey. People who invest in their own development are more highly engaged in their work, are more productive and enjoy greater job satisfaction here at Ohio State.
We are fortunate Ohio State provides a multi-faceted approach to development. While formal development experiences are one way to learn, other opportunities such as mentoring, on-the-job experiences and exposure to others through job shadowing and networking are great ways to expand your approach to growing and learning throughout your career.
Through this enhanced website and other efforts to provide innovative learning and development, we aim to educate faculty and staff members and their management about the spectrum of tools and resources available. Keep in mind growth and development efforts are most effective when there is ongoing dialogue and a trusted relationship between an employee and his or her manager.
Explore the new resources and opportunities here at Gateway to Learning and see what fits your interests and career aspirations. We hope you’ll come back to this site often, as well as tell your colleagues about the resources available.
