August 24th / 30th Supplemental SME Meeting

Faculty Members will be holding an additional call this month on Wednesday, August 24th at 18:00 UTC for Americas/EMEA and Tuesday,August 30th at 05:00 UTC for APAC.

In this meeting we will be discussing a concern that it is currently difficult for SMEs to jump in on things like reviewing new topics because the workflow may not be clear or simple enough to manage at the moment. Faculty Members will brainstorm and discuss how we can make these processes more clear for folks, and also evaluate which responsibilities SMEs find productive and impactful for their work

See the Training Team Faculty Member list for the list of current Faculty Members, and find out more about the Training Team Faculty Program in our handbook page.

Notes from the calls will be posted as comments within this post.
