April’s #YouW photo contest winners elevate the Husky Experience

As part of our April employee photo contest, we asked UW faculty and staff how their teams contribute to the Husky Experience.

UWHS_sizedThe UW Health Services Department is our winning team! To celebrate 50 years of healthcare advancements and education, more than 150 alumni, students, faculty and staff came together to celebrate at the Health Services Annual Celebration.

“We were thrilled to have Master of Health Administration alumnus Mr. Rogelio Riojas as our keynote speaker, and to hear from him about the way the Husky Experience shaped his journey to becoming CEO of Sea Mar, one of the largest community health centers in the country,” said Lauren Bedson, marketing and student recruitment specialist with the UW Health Services Department.

This month’s photo contest runner-up, the iSchool Learning Technologies team, is expanding the accessibility and reach of the Husky Experience — literally.

iSchool_sizedThanks to the technology of a Kubi robot, students can hang out with an online friend in one of the iSchool’s synchronous hybrid courses.These courses combine both residential and online cohorts of the iSchool’s Master’s in Library and Information Science program. Residential students come to campus and the online students are brought into the synchronous sessions using a variety of technologies. A hybrid program with huge impact, the iSchool Learning Technologies Team livestreams over a hundred events a year for remote students, faculty and staff.
