OER Day 3

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.
