WST 2019 – After the Event
Work Smarter Together 2019 ran on March 14, with pre-event workshops on March 13, and you can find all the details of the event’s programme here on the WST 2019 website.
All posters have now been published; presentations (the breakout sessions only) being linked off the WST 2019 Main Event Programme page.
We had lots of great feedback on the day – comments in passing – and we will survey the attendees to get the broader feedback. WST 2121 is only one year and 364 days away!
First news out of the event is the poster competition and our two winners – one of the jury’s prize, one of the popular vote.
The jury prize went to Kaylin Bednarz and Niamh Fitzgerald of UCD Registry – Admissions for their poster on “The UCD Student Vetting Process”.
The popular vote selected Sinead Leahy of UCD Estates Services for her poster on the “Duvets For Dogs Project”.
It will be the case, of course, that lots of people were involved in both of these initiatives but the prize goes to the individual whose creativity, insight and story telling ability created the posters. So well done to the two winners.
The popular vote, with 233 contributors, gave an hounourable mention to David Corscadden of UCD Registry – Student Recruitment for his poster on “UCD Student Ambassador Programme – The Year Cycle”.
The jury found themselves with quite a challenge, it turned out, as they found the strength and quality of the posters meant they needed to give three posters honourable mentions – to single out one would have been unfair. So the jury’s honourable mentions are:
- Dr Sabine Harrison of the School of Agriculture and Food Science for her poster on the “Introduction of a Chemical Management System”
- Sinead Leahy of UCD Estates for her “Duvets for Dogs” project poster, winner also of the popular vote.
- The team of: Iseult Ó Síocháin, Bianca Shaw, Ryan Teevan, Shelly Power, Mairéad Magee (UCD Registry); Bronwyn O’Callaghan, Emma Hurley, Yaswanth Sampathkumar (IT Services -EAG) for their poster on “Delegated Authority Student Decisions – Lean Six Sigma Green Belt Project”. Iseult was the project lead and poster author.
(We the names taken for mention as those listed on the individual posters – modesty/heroic contributions being invisible to us behind that).
More from WST 2019 over the next week or so. The poster competition winners and hounourable mentions are below. The full gallery of WST 2019 posters can be found here.
