Katie Anderson, Jeanne Boyle, Patricia Libutti, Tracey Meyer, Jeff Teichmann (recorder), Judit Ward, Marilyn Wilt (chair)

Chair Updates

Marilyn suggested setting up a list serve to present and discuss ongoing projects/issues of the committee in between meetings. The group heartily agreed. Marilyn will set up a list serve.

Marilyn met with the PCWG for a pilot run of the tech training for new employees. The group decided some 'tweaking' was needed. They also decided to create guidelines for the new employee that will include the role/relationship of the unit PC Coordinator. The training session and guidelines should be ready during Spring 2005.

Technical Skills Development Series and other training issues

Marilyn informed the committee that there will be a tech series for the Spring 2005 semester - details to follow.

Marilyn mentioned that other committee's plans to meet RU/RUL strategic goals will have training aspects/components, so there will be other training programs to follow. An example of this would be training on SearchPath that could be coupled with training/information sessions involving Information Literacy and Customer Service.
