Planning and presenting courses

The University Staff Development Committee is grateful for the contributions of the volunteer staff who coordinate and present our courses.

Course Coordinators, Learning Partners and Learning Instructors play an integral role in the designing, planning and delivery of the Staff Development Program. Each role has several responsibilities.

Content Creator

  • Create and edit learning content in Workday 
  • Schedule offerings for in-person courses in Workday 

Learning Instructor 

  • View enrolments in Workday 
  • Records attendance in Workday upon course conclusion 

Learning Partner 

  • Access will be provided to a limited number of individuals who are required to manage enrolments or conduct reporting within Workday, for learning completions across the University 

Current Content Creators, Learning Instructors, and Learning Partners can refer to Quick Reference Guides for specific information and instructions relating to each Workday security role.

Enrolments

Content creators should review enrolment and waitlists in Workday prior to course delivery to check the number of enrollees and suitability of participants. 

If a course is undersubscribed, the coordinator can advertise in UQ Update or send a targeted email advertising the course.

Handouts

We recommend course materials are emailed to participants or attached to the course within Workday as an additional lesson, to reduce our environmental impact. If physical handouts are required, Content Creators should help Learning Instructors to produce these.

Surveys

Surveys are attached to blended courses within Workday and are marked as non-mandatory lessons. If a course requires a mandatory survey, contact learning.hr@enquire.uq.edu.au for instructions. Learning Instructors, please remind attendees to complete their course survey within Workday prior to course conclusion.

Webinar links 

Webinar/Teams/Zoom links can be embedded into the individual offerings in Workday, by selecting Instructor-Led lesson, then Webinar. Include the link into each scheduled offering. Please refer to Systems Training Hub guides or contact learning.hr@enquire.uq.edu.au. Links will be available to enrollees once their registration request is approved by their Manager within Workday and the enrolee will have an option to add the course enrolment including the link to their Workday calendar. To update your Instructor-Led/Classroom session to a Webinar - Zoom/Teams session please ask learning.hr@enquire.uq.edu.au for instructions.
