Figure 2 Engaging in a learning community is a great way to share ideas and gain support while learning online.

Online group meetings and emails are a good way of keeping in touch with colleagues, sharing ideas and discussing your practice.

In addition, social media sites such as Twitter and WhatsApp are places where you can share your experience with others, either socially or specifically related to your studies.

You can use different strategies to connect and communicate with other professionals. Look at the list below and consider which would be most appropriate for socialising, giving or getting support, or engaging in learning activities with other colleagues.

  • Emailing colleagues or talking to them using a tool such as Zoom, Google Meet or Skype.
  • Talking to others in your local area.
