Basic Buckwheat Breakfast & Buckwheat Salad

Buckwheat can be made as a morning cereal, much the same as oatmeal, but with more of a nutty flavor. 

Toasted buckwheat can also be a great addition to tasty summertime salads.

Orange Roughy & Corn Chowder

My favorite cookbook is “Cooking the Whole Foods Way” by Christina Pirello. The front cover is missing, the bind is broken beyond compare, pages have fallen out and taped back in place, notes are scribbled throughout the entire book; overall it is a very well loved book. I want to share one of my husband’s favorite recipes.

Now that we are all working from home, this may be a great time for you to explore some virtual training, education or certificate programs that support your work and advance your professional or career development. We’d like to highlight two key learning benefits that UCAR offers to all employees: Workday Learning and the Education Assistance program.

Workday Learning, a component of Workday, is a Learning Management System (LMS) that combines professional development, peer learning, and required training into a single intuitive application, so employees can engage in learning at their own time and pace.

Although many of you have already taken advantage of Workday Learning, we’d like to share some highlights around the new learning opportunities available to all employees. In addition, we’d like to introduce you to the extensive elearning content provided by LinkedIn Learning (formerly Lynda.com) through Workday!

For example, if you’re interested in exploring self-care and wellness resources on LinkedIn Learning, check out these videos.

For more details, read the Workday Learning and LinkedIn Learning FAQ.

UCAR's Education Assistance Program assists eligible employees by offering financial support for qualifying educational programs, such as course work or degrees from accredited educational institutions, or certification programs through professional societies. Self-directed learning—such as taking elearning courses through Workday Learning or work-related seminars or conferences—is not covered by this program, but may be supported by your lab, program, or department.

For more information on how to take advantage of this great employee benefit, visit the UCAR Education Assistance Program webpage, email Stefania Damiani or call her at x8715.

It is finally here, the Leadership Exploration and Development (LEAD) program for Supervisors! This is a six-month program (one full day per month), that equips supervisors at all levels with the critical concepts, strategies, skills, and resources needed to effectively manage and lead staff.

LEAD is for supervisors and there are 30 seats available for the first six-month program. Enrollment is based on a first come, first served basis: please enroll as soon as possible. If you find that the program is full, continue to enroll so you will be placed on the waitlist. This will also help our training team capture your interest for the next six-month session of LEAD that will be scheduled in the near future.

ENROLLMENT INSTRUCTIONS:

  • Log into Workday
  • Click the 'Learning' icon
  • Look under recently added for 'LEAD: Supervisor Training'

If you have questions about LEAD, please contact a member of the LEAD Team: Sue Brundege, Toni Wallace (Human Resources), Carolyn Brinkworth, Kristen Aponte, or Katy Putsavage (Office of Diversity, Equity & Inclusion), Mary Helen Matthews (Office of General Counsel).
