Lakehead University launches Community Zone as a central hub for accessing lifelong learning, professional development, and training

Funded by the Ministry of Colleges and Universities through the Northern Sustainability Fund (2019), Lakehead University established the Community Zone to strengthen the University’s commitment to developing and delivering innovative and accessible, non-academic learning opportunities.

Through the digital hub, learners can browse Lakehead University’s non-credit offerings by category or subject area, which includes departments and units spanning the University.

Those looking to continue their lifelong learning or seeking to access non-credit professional development and training opportunities can browse and register for a variety of certificates, lectures, workshops, and short-courses and programs in one centralized location.

Learners can also easily determine how the offerings are delivered, such as online or in-person, the associated costs, and how they may fit their new learning opportunity within their busy schedule.

For departments and units within Lakehead University seeking to develop non-credit offerings and micro-credentials, they now have access to information on approval processes, dedicated and specialized support for instructional development, marketing and communication, as well as administration and registration.

A companion Learning Community will also be accessible through mycourselink in the near future.
