with Jennifer Chizuk & Inette Dishler

UC Berkeley / ATD SF East Bay

UC Berkeley has a large team that supports campus operations and just like a private sector company, UC Berkeley invests in learning and development for the people who work there. This takes many forms. Recently, they launched a social learning platform. In this meeting, you'll get a chance to examine the platform (public view) and look under the hood (admin view), speak with, and learn from the program's designers and developers.
