Faculty Learning Path

Starting soon, all employees will have access to web based training through the Learning Resource Network (LRN). We recommend Faculty complete the following web-based training courses:

This course promotes security awareness for employees at Penn State.

  • Getting Started with Workday

This 1-hour course covers the basic navigation for using Workday, including the Workday Home page, searching, and accessing your profile.

  • Employee Self Service

This self-paced course will cover the tasks employees can initiate for themselves, including viewing and editing your benefits, updating your personal profile, and viewing/printing your payslip.

All supervisors will have enhanced responsibilities as a “manager” in Workday. For example, a faculty member supervising a team of part-time student employees should plan to complete Workday for Managers training.

Once available, faculty will be able to access training materials through the Learning Resource Network on an ongoing basis.
