Day 6 of the 12 Days of Learning: Three good things

23 Jan 2019

Research has shown that simply by identifying three things a day which we’re grateful for, we can all live happier, healthier and more fulfilled lives.

Hands holding a plastic heart

As an educational institute we believe that this gratitude extends to learning – take a moment to identify three positive things you learnt over the past week which have helped you in your role.

If you’re struggling, how about three positive things you learnt over the past month? If that proves a challenge still, now is the time to focus on yourself and your personal development. 

Your personal development

Staff Learning and Development provide Learning for all (found by clicking the lightbulb in Quick Links on StaffNet), an online resource which brings all of our learning content together in one place. There are a variety of learning options available to help you prioritise your development. 

Take a moment to review the resources, videos and podcasts in the Learning and Development Toolkit (found on our StaffNet page under Quick Links). It also provides a range of content to support your development. 

For short online courses on a wide range of subjects, visit Lynda. This online portal from LinkedIn provides training and tutorials you can access anywhere. Email StaffLD@manchester.ac.uk if you do not have access to Lynda.
