Faculty Learning Path

Starting October 23, 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:

  • Information Security Training

This 1-hour course promotes security awareness for employees at Penn State.

  • Getting Started with WorkLion

This 30-minute course covers the basic navigation for using the WorkLion portal and Workday. 

  • 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.This course is estimated to be 1.5 hours.

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

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