Many professional development opportunities will not require significant travel, costs, or time outside of normal business hours. For example, Texas A&M University’s Office of Professional Development (formerly Employee & Organizational Development) offers a wide variety of on-line as well as face-to-face opportunities (many of which are highlighted in our weekly Friday e-mail communication). In addition, a number of online opportunities are available through:
- Lynda.com (www.lynda.com) – which is free of charge to Texas A&M faculty, staff and students.
- Coursera (www.coursera.org) - access to learning videos at Coursera is free, but there is a charge to submit graded work or to earn a certificate.
- Khan Academy (https://www.khanacademy.org/) – is free
- edX (www.edx.org) – access to course content is free, but there is a charge to submit graded work or to earn a certificate
