Blog: Learning for Work at Otago
We are pleased to announce the launch of our Learning for Work at Otago blog. This site contains a range of resources and links to online learning opportunities to support you in your work.
As this blog is hosted on WordPress, you may see a login request. Simply log in with your University username and password. This is safe and means only University of Otago staff can access the site.
We run a programme of interactive workshops and information sessions. To keep up to date with our courses, you can subscribe to receive an updated calendar of events each month.

As some of our courses are extremely popular we recommend that you enrol early.
If a course is full or there is no date, what are my options?
Contact us and have a chat.
If a course is full, a link will appear, which allows you to add your name to a waitlist. If enough people are on a waitlist, we will consider running another session.
