FFRA Training Vision Statement

The FFRA Training team's goal is to provide Northwestern University's diverse faculty and staff with role-based training tailored to actual business processes to support new software systems as they are implemented across the institution.

FFRA's training is designed to:

  • Deliver role-based learning which focuses on what is needed to successfully perform job-related tasks
  • Address NU-specific business practices and policies
  • Blend learning solutions and learning styles (e.g., instructor-led hands-on training, open labs, large group information sessions, and online learning)
  • Maximize current classroom technology to create the best possible learning experience
  • Demonstrate not only the "hows" but also the "whys" in the context of the systems as a whole
  • Occur close to go-live to maximize learning gains
