A Partnership Between Coordinating Committee for Professional Development and Training Office of Human Resource Development Office of Quality Improvement DoIT eBusiness Group DoIT Professional & Technical Education
My Professional Development On-Line Support for Professional Development for Faculty and Staff at UW-Madison
Why this Project? Professional development of faculty and staff is a priority in the campus strategic plan Why a Professional Development Opportunity Repository?
A variety of courses and workshops are offered across campus, but there is no systematic way to learn of these opportunities Why this Project?
Campus support for E- learning had focused on timetable courses rather than faculty/staff professional growth And… Why this Project? Why Fund Flagship E-learning Conversion Projects?
The University’s fiscal situation requires that professional development be provided as cost-effectively as possible Why this Project? Why Fund Flagship E-learning Conversion Projects?
Provide Just- In-Time access at any time from anywhere Why this Project? Why Fund Flagship E-learning Conversion Projects?
Our Three Goals Goal 1 Increase faculty and staff access to professional development opportunities by creating a convenient central access point
Goal 2 Link this resource to My UW-Madison faculty- staff web portal Our Three Goals
Goal 3 Stimulate on-line professional development, especially converting one-time training to just-in-time resources available 24 x 7 where appropriate Our Three Goals
GOAL 1: How did we “Increase faculty and staff access to professional development opportunities….”? Centralized Repository for Locating Campus Training Opportunities Consistent Application of Meta-Data to All Training Opportunities
