What Happened to Training Days?

Covid-19 and the consequent uncertainty of social gatherings set the Learning & Organizational Development team of University Human Resources (UHR) to rethink the annual Training Days program. In place of the traditional two-day in-person Training Days conference, UHR is offering a new program in the 2020-21 academic year called FYI Friday.

The vision for the FYI Friday program is similar to Training Days - to provide a platform for various university groups to share information with the OSU community. And, for greater flexibility, in 2020-21 FYI Friday will be presented remotely, and throughout the academic year. Thus, presenters and topics will vary from week to week.
