    Professional Committee Work The Wiki Way Professional Committee Work The Wiki Way Presentation Transcript

    • Professional Committee Work The Wiki Way
    • You are Appointed Chair of an Awards Committee
      • Your major responsibilities:
      • Coordinate all committee members located in several institutions in several states
      • Call for reviewing and judging applications and nominations
      • Update committee members on committee tasks
      • Update committee manual as needed
    • How do You go about doing those things?
      • Set up conference calls for Committee members?
      • Send out numerous emails with documents attached?
      • Send out emails with comments on documents back and forth?
    • Typical Procedure
      • Committee Chair uses email to:
      • Form the committee
      • Send out committee roster for members to verify their contact information
      • Inform committee members what they need to do in their appointed period
      • Send documents to committee members as attachments
      • Seek input and suggestions from committee member on issues and concerns about committee work
    • Typical Committee Communications
      • Mostly via emails
      • Everyone knows a little bit about the committee work as a whole
      • Not everyone knows about everything and be able to see the whole picture of the committee work progress
      • Committee work timeline is not accessible and visible to everyone
      • My Solution:
      • Created a Wiki using Google Sites
    • Why Wiki?
      • Web-based and secure log in
      • Collaboration in one location
      • Visible edits and comments
      • All documents viewable and downloadable from one location
      • Less emails and attachments
      • Committee work visible to all members
      • Ability to link to documents, pages, and websites
      • Date and time stamp
      • Archived and backup and searchable
    • Wiki is not 100% Good
      • Some learning curve
      • Forgot how to access the Wiki
      • Forgot login and password
    • What did Committee Members Comment about the Wiki?
      • Excellent job!
      • Thanks for your outstanding leadership
      • Convenient access to documents I need
      • Great example applying Web 2.0 tools
    • I can do it and you can, too. Create your own Wiki to make it work for you!
      • Questions and Discussions are welcome!
