The Staff Digital Development Series is Picking Up Momentum

June 20, 2023

The Staff Digital Development Series started from a brainstorming session with the Digital Fluency Professional Committee, a committee focused on providing educational experiences to staff so that they may be digitally agile. From there the IT Training team made the idea a reality. Employees around across campus volunteered their talents and shared their experiences to teach and develop their staff peers.

Of the 12 classes that have occurred so far, we have trained on topics such as Adobe Creative Cloud, training, team culture, accessibility, communication, Google Suites and Zoom. Thus far, nearly 10% of all exempt and non-exempt staff have attended either in person or virtually. Staff have ranked these classes over 4 stars, 90 percent found that the information they learned can be used in their job roles and 89 percent of the participants learned where they could find more resources and information on the topics below. 

The anonymous feedback has also been very positive. “I'm excited about this whole series and feel it is much needed and hope many take advantage of the meetings that will help them most.” Another staff member said, “The overview of training was excellent - it refreshed some concepts I was familiar with and gave me new insights on training that will help me enhance the way I try to "develop" WSU employees.”
