I am proud to share that we have reached the 1 year anniversary of the Wisdom Café! This project and site have been a labor of love to expand our staff’s learning opportunities and support social learning across our organization. We have a talented, smart and dedicated workforce who have much expertise to share and just need a place to do that.
The Wisdom Café has exceeded our initial targets and been very positively received. In fact, the site just received a UC systemwide award called a Sautter Award for “using information technology to make university operations more effective and efficient and to better serve faculty, staff, students and patients”! I am gratified that people have consistently commented on the breadth and quality of the content on the site, and we are steadily increasing the numbers of staff who are contributing content and interacting with the site through our Twitter and Instagram feeds, comments on posts, recommendations, and more.
We have many ideas for new functionality to enhance the site and make it even more robust and valuable for you. We are working to add podcasts and Google Groups discussion boards. Please share ideas you have for features or content as the site belongs to all of us! Thanks for your support and being a part of it!
Please enjoy this video celebrating our anniversary – it features several members of our staff community and presents the reasons why they love our site!
