Our Commitment to Continuous Learning
At Berkeley we believe continuous learning is a key component of advising excellence. We encourage all advisors at every career stage and level to take advantage of the wide range of available professional development opportunities offered on campus and elsewhere and to create a yearly learning plan as part of their goal setting and performance management discussions. We believe the best plans will mix and match formal learning (courses, workshops, conference presentations or attendance etc.) with informal learning activities (accessed on the job through new assignments, conversation, coaching, etc.) and that both passive (listening, reading, attending, watching) and active learning (discussing, practicing, teaching) should be blended for maximum impact.
See below descriptions of and resources for a wide variety of both formal and informal learning strategies and platforms.
