Reserving Rooms and Use of Space in Enterprise Learning

Rooms within The Learning Center have been provided for the education and development of UKHealthCare staff and faculty. It is the intent of Enterprise Learning to make these available as much as possible.

Users of the space are expected to follow all guidelines posted within the center related to security, equipment usage, room clean-up and food usage. It is also expected that anyone who has reserved a room for educational activities will cancel the reservation if the program is cancelled or moved to another area. Failure to follow these guidelines may result in denial of further requests for room usage.

Guidelines:
Call 257-9226 to request any room.

Upon requesting a room, the requesting person will be asked to supply the following information:

  • Name of person requesting
  • Name of department requesting
  • Phone number
  • Name and purpose of program
  • Dates requested
  • Time requested
  • Number of people attending

Rooms cannot be booked more than a month in advance

Number of rooms being reserved will be based on the number of people confirmed attending

If there is a need for instructors or students to access the center before or after normal business hours, the instructor must make arrangements to pick up the key to the center. It is possible for someone other than the instructor to pick up the key, but the instructor is the person who will be held accountable to the policy.

All equipment that belongs to The Learning Center must be left within the classroom or other designated location within the center at the conclusion of the class/course. The projector must be turned off.

If any of the equipment is not operating correctly, the personnel of the center should be notified or a note placed on the piece of equipment with an explanation of what is not working.
Before leaving the center, all trash is to be placed into appropriate waste receptacles.

The room should be arranged to its original configuration.Our education rooms are A-D.  Each room holds up to 30 people depending on the room setup. Rooms may also be scheduled in combination with one another, depending on pre-scheduled events.

I'm trying to enroll in a class through myUK Learning but it won't let me select the class that I want.

If the box is grayed out, it means that class is full and you cannot enroll in it. We leave classes on the web even if they are full so that if someone needs to see where a class is and what time it starts, it will still be available for that information.

Next generation of nurses take their first steps with UK HealthCare

Graduating nurses from across the commonwealth and beyond took a major step towards becoming an RN within UK HealthCare.  In what health care leaders called a “transformative milestone,” nearly 200 graduating students were given the opportunity to interview with hiring leaders from Chandler, KY Children’s, Good Samaritan, the Markey Cancer Center and Eastern State Hospital.  Interviews were scheduled based on student’s career interests as well as offering them an opportunity exploring areas they may not have yet considered.
