Our Philosophy


All those who provide Learning and Development opportunities for staff and faculty within UCD believe that truly innovative workplaces recognise continuous learning is essential for dealing with the demands of an increasingly complex institution. 

Staff & faculty bring their whole selves to work so we aim to provide holistic learning opportunities from IT to management skills to programmes that support your wellbeing and change behaviour - physically, emotionally and psychologically. We view learning as a social process, so learning events are seen as a chance to get to know colleagues across the University where knowledge and experience can be shared, thereby facilitating the creation of new understanding and making learning more meaningful. 

UCD Learning and Development aims to provide staff and faculty with the chance to enjoy developing themselves, both professionally and personally.  We want to create a UCD where learning and development is everyone's business.
