Enquiring Minds Want to Know


Published on

NETC 08 Showcase of a series of PowerPoint sets that incorporate video clips of interviews with program and administrative team members of AL Cooperative Extension System. The sets were developed to help new employees get to know the leadership a little better than they might otherwise. Each set is based on five basic questions asked of each person. Each question has its own slide with a few facts and a link to the appropriate interview clip.

  4. 4. <ul><li>An online supplement to face-to-face meetings would provide access to standard information whenever needed wherever the employee is. </li></ul><ul><li>A series of interviews with Extension leaders is part of the supplement. The interviews help new employees become more familiar with the leaders, some of whom they may see rarely. </li></ul>

Every set used the same template to create consistency throughout the series. </li></ul><ul><li>Each slide included a few highlights from the leader’s answer to our question.
