CIDDE Liaisons pay close attention to the offerings and activities of CIDDE and help us get the word out about our workshops, special events, training sessions, and new system offerings and services. Typically, CIDDE Liaisons serve for a minimum of two years and are largely responsible for communicating to their group, department, or organization about anything related to CIDDE.
Liaison members may be faculty, instructional designers, administrative assistants, business managers, or other staff that typically interact with faculty. We try to have a cross section of University participants, and most importantly we want to make sure that all schools and departments are represented, including our satellite campus locations.
Liaisons should communicate the instructional and educational challenges their departments face, and to help us facilitate solutions for those challenges. This could be new workshop ideas, new educational technology, or a new service. To help facilitate these conversations, CIDDE e-mails the Liaison Newsletter approximately once a month in the Fall and Spring semesters, and once in the summer. In addition, we host a breakfast event twice a year where CIDDE answers questions, provides updates, and introduces new CIDDE faces.
If you are interested in serving as a CIDDE Liaison, please contact the CIDDE Liaison Coordinator, Carolyn Barber at CAB251@pitt.edu.
