  • Changes in Penn Leadership

  • Changes in supervisor – TWICE

  • No centralized training resources on the University side of the Penn system

  • Little interest in improving the training development process

  • Little value placed on training on the University side of the Penn system

  • Focus group members located remotely


  • Increased confidence in my leadership ability

  • Better understanding of different communication styles

  • Better understanding of my strengths and weaknesses

  • Stronger voice to vocalize my thoughts and ideas in less than safe environments


Enhance the quality of training at Penn by improving communication between Subject Matter Experts and Instructional Designers.

Gain an understanding of the needs of Subject Matter Experts when they develop training.Collaborate with KLINK developers to create resources that would educate and support Subject Matter Experts. Establish a website that would house resource material for Subject Matter Experts. The resource material should be organized in a way that speaks to the lessons learned from the chat sessions.


Training resources are not readily available or shared at my institution and developing training is challenging and undervalued. There are multiple opportunities at Penn to make the training development process more efficient by sharing resources and improving communication between Subject Matter Experts and Instructional Designers.

  • Posted transcript and notes from chat session on website for the KLINK developers and Subject Matter Experts community to review

  • Reassessed original project vision based on what I learned for the chat sessions

  • Separated training module into multiple resources for easy review

  • Developed and maintain a website to share resource material
