UPDATES OF WORK FOR THIS WEEK'S BI-WEEKLY REPORTS

Alessandra

  • Researched and added content for Journals section including UCLA holdings, recommendations from ASIS&T, AMIA recommendations, Human Computer Interaction, and general informatics-related journals
  • Researched and added content for Academic Programs. The content reflects graduate, doctoral, post-doctoral and fellowship opportunities. There is no content for the undergraduate level students. Information Architectue and Knowledge Management are grouped together. MFA programs were not included because they are not applicable to informatics.
  • Added links for medical informatics programs (this is just a preliminary list)
  • Added links for journals relating to informatics, medical informatics, information architecture and knowledge management.

 

 

Monique

  • Research and add content for Informatics classes at UCLA and Informatics specializaiton at UCLA. The rationale I used to choose classes was based on the definition of informatics from our department web site.
  • Re-wrote and submitted final proposal
  • Research articles for theoretical framework
  • Began usability study

 

 

Jill

  • Researched 'wikitology' and sustainment of usage: successful wikis that stem from good design, good mantinance of content, and many contributors (i.e. Wikipedia)
  • Proposed a marketing approach to promote the wiki: Get as many informatics professionals/professors involved as possible to contribute to our wiki. Group suggestion: include Leah Lievrouw in on this because of her background and expertise: social and cultural aspects of communication/information technologies
  • Proposed having news alerts included in wiki and added content to internships page

 

 

Grace

  • Researched and organized the initial setup of the wiki. Added administrative pages such as meeting minutes and group proposal. Began seeding the Occupational Outlook page and Upcoming Conferences page.
