Staff Development and Training Committee

August 16-2009-August 15, 2010


I.  Committee Composition


a.        Leadership:  Beth Woodard, increased from ½ time to 2/3 time in August 2009.  This increase in time allowed me to spend more time in managing the activities of subgroups of the committee, where a lot of the actual preparation and planning for training takes place.  The whole committee usually meets more frequently than one time a month in the fall in order to plan activities.  A lot of the work actually takes place, however, in the subcommittees.


b.      Membership:


Strong interest and support from the Staff Development and Training Committee.   It is almost impossible to get everyone to attend on a regular basis, but a wide range of interests and jobs is very desirable on this committee, as this input is invaluable.

b.      Offered repeat of Web 2.0 series.  These sessions were offered entirely by librarians and staff within the University Library.  Since the overall design of the series was developed last year, the group only met face to face 3 times this year, mainly to work out who would be taking on sessions for folks who had left the previous year, and to discuss what additional sessions should be developed.  Much of the time for this group was spent in preparations for these sessions and in updating materials for this year's series.
