Western Way: Barse honored for generosity, leadership
Do you work with an outstanding colleague at Western Washington University? The Western Way program provides the opportunity for faculty and staff to recognize the great efforts of others on campus.
Any time throughout the year, folks in the WWU community can visit the Western Way website to recognize a Western employee who demonstrates excellence in serving students, visitors or colleagues, based on the characteristics that make them uniquely Western: inviting, engaging, distinctive, collaborative and adventurous.
Western Way honorees are recognized online on the Western Way Wall of Acknowledgment, in Western Today and in a slideshow at the Employee Recognition Ceremony in April.
Recently recognized was AJ Barse, an educational technologist and training specialist with ATUS. David Hamiter, who also works in ATUS, submitted the following:
AJ is a thoughtful, knowledgeable teacher who helps others learn technologies. AJ created 3D printing and scanning training for the STC. He’s the first to volunteer and take new technology projects. AJ is a generous and attentive collaborator. He leads in developing new technology training for campus. I am greeted regularly by people that have worked with AJ that want me to know how lucky we are to have him. AJ represents the finest traditions of teaching and learning in a higher education environment. He takes others as they are and helps them get to where they want to be.
