The World Council of Credit Unions now offers new online educational offerings for its members and the global credit union community.
“We are pleased to expand our learning opportunities to include online programs, contributing to the professional development of our members and adding to the face-to-face educational programs offered thus far,” said Paul Treinen, World Council chief operating officer.
Through World Council’s partnership with eLeadership Academy, participants can register for two online programs. The eight-week programs, eLEAD and eCOACH, both consist of blended learning through online reading, videos, self-assessments, webinars, discussion forums and assignments. Participants can participate in the courses anytime, anywhere convenient to their schedule. Upon completion of the courses, the participants will have developed concrete action plans to support their continued growth.
“The online nature of our programs results in much lower cost per person than traditional in-house or on-site facilitated programs and has proven valuable for participants,” said Sandra McDowell, eLeadership Academy founder/faculty and featured presenter at past World Credit Union Conference events. McDowell is a driving force for increased leadership and coaching capacity in her executive role within the credit union system.
