Learning & Development offers behavioral-based learning that encompasses personal and interpersonal skill development. Offerings include topics such as supervisor development, CliftonStrengths®, team-building workshops, and much more. These learning opportunities are researched, designed and delivered in-house by learning and development professionals from across Lone Star College. Delivery methods include classroom training, train-the-trainer, coaching, seminars and e-learning.
A variety of programs are designed and scheduled throughout the semester at all campuses to provide meaningful, engaging learning opportunities. These sessions are open to all employees and cover a range of topics.
The Learning & Development team works closely with others across the college and offers workshops tailored to meet the specific needs of teams and departments. These partnerships increase effectiveness to work as individuals and as a team to reach the common goal. Sessions can be a one-time occurrence or a series of workshops.
The goal of the Supervisor Success series is to prepare current and future supervisors for their work with teams. The series offers several foundational workshops and allows participants to select the additional workshops that best meet their needs, for a total of 9 workshops. Most sessions are offered once a semester, and upon completion each participant is awarded certification and the ability to enhance his/her career at Lone Star College.
This series takes the participant on a journey to explore their individual strengths, how to use their strengths on the job, as well as exploring the talents of their colleagues. The series also provides a look into the domains of leadership and how to create a strengths-based work environment.
This group is a collaborative effort involving a representative from each campus that meets regularly to share best practices, ideas, and visions for learning and development across Lone Star College. Involvement of the group results in a higher quality of learning and development opportunities and assists in the development of new sessions and programs within Lone Star College.
