People and Organisational Development's response to the current COVID-19 crisis

POD wants to support you during this Coronavirus crisis and, while we are currently unable to offer face-to-face learning, we have continued to look out for remote learning opportunities that may be of interest as well as designing a number of virtual workshops and webinars to meet organisational need.  Our upcoming online workshops can be found on our course listing.
In time we hope to be able to provide a flexible combination of socially distanced face-to-face workshops, for those who are able to attend in person, and online workshops to meet the needs of those whose circumstances, own health, or caring responsibilities prevent them from attending in person.  From Trinity term 2021, we hope to return to running some of our workshops face to face if government and University guidance allows, keeping your safety paramount.
The table below pulls together a range of self-access courses, guides and toolkits, all of which can be accessed from home at a time that works for you. The University also has a subscription to LinkedIn Learning where you can access a variety of online learning for free. 
If you have any questions or suggestions for how POD can best support you during this period, please contact us at pod@admin.ox.ac.uk
