Greetings from the EDUCAUSE Professional Development Committee
My name is Ellen Borkowski, Chief Information Officer at Union College, and I am the current chair of the EDUCAUSE Professional Development Committee. I am reaching out to this constituent group on behalf of the committee. Our committee's role is to advise EDUCAUSE on their professional development activities – not only in looking at existing programs, but also providing input into areas of need for new programs.
In our meeting at EDUCAUSE, the committee discussed ways to gather more feedback and input into the needs of our community in terms of professional development for all levels of our staff. We felt that connecting with this constituent group would be a great way to gather additional feedback. Unfortunately, I was unable to make it to the CG meeting at the conference, but we heard from Tracey Leger-Hornby that there was a lively discussion in Denver. I am reaching out to this group to ask for that discussion to continue on this listerv so that I may gather additional information that can inform future committee discussions.
So I invite all of you to continue the lively discussion in Denver on this list. Do you have questions about what is available? Wish you could take a certain type of training or suggest a certain type of training to a colleague? Frustrated with finding resources on the website? Want to know more about mentoring? Have suggestions on new things to try or comments on things that work well? I encourage all to post whatever is on your mind!
I look forward to interacting and communicating with this CG group in conjunction with leading the EDUCAUSE Professional Development Committee.
