Skills for better work places

Learning how to hone recruitment skills and create positive workplaces is just a click away, thanks to an innovative online MicroMasters programme.

The Organizational Psychology MicroMasters programme is unique in New Zealand and already attracting a global following on UCx – the University of Canterbury’s online learning platform.

A free online learning resource, UC’s new MicroMasters programme provides valuable insights into recruitment, performance and motivation at work, leadership, supporting employee wellbeing, and organisational change and innovation.

People can enrol at any time, progress at their own speed and, for a fee, can choose to have their work certified.

More than 4000 enrolments were received from both domestic and international students for three of the first five graduate-level courses.

Associate Professor Joana Kuntz, Professor Katharina Näswall and Dr Fleur Pawsey, of UC’s School of Psychology, Speech and Hearing, are the MicroMasters programme’s instructors.

“We see our MicroMasters programme as very useful for anyone wanting to make their organisations work better, such as people working in human relations,” says Professor Näswall.

“It is also suitable for psychology graduates thinking about postgraduate study. We have designed the courses for a broad audience including people with no experience of tertiary studies as well as students with some background in psychology.”
