Open Access Graduate Research Paper
Electronic data processing--Study and teaching;
A statewide training initiative was necessitated by the upgrade of the statistical database management program required by the State 4-H Office. The upgrade was released in the fall of 1998, but was flawed and buggy, resulting in much frustration among users. Additionally, I was the newly-hired State Support Specialist, and had not established any credibility with the users I was hired to support. The Associate State Director and I decided that an ambitious early spring training program would be beneficial to all parties involved.
I believe that this project was both a personal and a professional success. I was able to effectively teach others to use the new program, formed personal and professional relationships, and gained a deeper understanding the clients I am hired to serve.
