Our previous STA who had been managing VLabs has graduated (Valerie, you and your Luna updates are missed) and I have taken her place managing this beast of a project. I’m excited about this role and honored to move up this quickly at LAITS. I hope I can be as encouraging and helpful as she was. There’s about 5-6 of us working part-time on this now, so things will move slower but I hope to keep things organized and moving forward.
The first thing I did was some reorganization of our Basecamp to-dos. Each person has a clean list that will appear in their general to-do’s now. I hope with this system everyone can clearly see their assignments and where they are in the pipeline.
To keep up momentum I’ve trained a couple of STAs on how to review PSDs and they are all doing great!
Suloni has also asked me to create some new beginner and intermediate level trainings for Canvasser and Adobe XD. I’m honestly really excited at the prospect of more management and training-oriented roles as an STA. These tasks are coincidentally matching up well with my coursework this semester in Management and Org Comm. Communication, organization, and improving systems are where I thrive and I look forward at a chance to improve my teaching skills. Senior year and it’s all coming together!
