The Collaborative Work Expertise Working Group assists the Collaborative Workforce Team in developing and populating a skills inventory of Alliance members.

The goals of the working group are:

  • To develop a skills level list using an assessment rubric (e.g. beginner/intermediate/advanced vs. can-teach/can-do/want-to-learn)
  • Create a skills area list (e.g. acquisition, administration, analytics, assessment, discovery configuration, ERM, fulfillment, general area, instruction, resource sharing, resource management, training, etc...)
  • Develop a one-stop database for those looking for advice and/or training on a particular skill. 
  • Create a system of periodic evaluation of the assessment rubric, skills area list, and database


Up to one year, potentially implementing at 2017 summer meeting.


Chair: Michele Reilly, Central Washington University
