As a librarian, I often work in online leaning
environments and am always exploring new technologies that I can use in my
practice to make content more accessible to my students (i.e. research guides,
videos, tutorials, etc.).
In terms of professional development, I also often
find myself seeking out opportunities online, having very little funding at
this point in my career to attend conferences and workshops or to take classes
of interest. I regularly follow discussions on Twitter, read blog posts from
other professionals both in and outside my field, and more recently, have
explored MOOCs as a way to develop my knowledge and skills. I like how these
options are often free or low cost and asynchronous, which allows me to learn
at my own pace and from a vast community of learners from all over the world.
I'm not a very artistic person, but this quick diagram shows how I view my own learning process, which is very circular and never-ending.
