Welcome to Staff Professional Development

SPD Announcements

SPD Offers Faculty and Staff Development via Starlink

Full time and part time faculty and staff have access to the entire catalog of Starlink courses, webinars, and leadership training.  There are hundreds of hours of high quality professional development accessible 24/7 with any internet connection.  Monthly webinar series are also available and will be announced in the SPD weekly announcement.

To view Starlink videos, follow the instructions below:

  1. Go to starlinktraining.org and click on “Get Started” tab at the top.  You will see a drop down menu; if you already have an account, you can simply login at the prompt.
  2. Click “First Time User” and fill out the registration by using your pensacolastate.edu email as your username. (Note: you do not need your employee ID to set up an account – you can leave that field blank)
  3. Click “Register”.  You will receive an email from STARLINK to verify your account. Once you click the verification in your email, you are ready to use STARLINK.
  4. If you would like to receive in-service professional development credit, please complete the SPD Professional Development Activity Form. All Starlink sessions qualify for professional development but only announced workshops will appear on your Spyglass transcript.
