Part B of this workshop runs 24 November - 19 December (4 weeks)
In this fast moving age, it is no longer just about studying existing bodies of knowledge and acquiring existing skills in formal courses but adopting a new set of learning strategies to “learn the new” and constantly discover new ideas, new thinking, new resources in order to stay up to date in your industry or profession. It’s also about evidencing what you have learned in order to promote yourself to (an existing or future) employer.. (You can read the rationale for these new skills at Modern Learning Skills for the Networked Age.)
Each week of this workshop focuses on a different set of skills and tools as explained briefly below.
- Recording your learning - A knowledge worker records reflects and records on what she has learned. In this first week of Part B, we will look at the importance of professional blogging.
- Evidencing your learning – A knowledge worker evidences his/her learning by extending their blog into a personal portfolio. This week we will look at extending your blog into a professional learning portfolio
- Building your professional brand – A knowledge worker builds a personal (or professional brand) in order to market and promote him/herself. This week will look at what it means to have a personal brand, and how to build one for yourself.
- Learning out loud - A knowledge workers also shares what s/he learns with others in his/her different networks. In this week we look at how to add value to what you share and how to avoid over-sharing.
How the workshop runs
Please note this is not a traditional course. It is hosted in our social platform, and each week a set of short activities will be released, together with tips and tools and links to external readings and resources. You are invited to work through these activities as best suits you and fits in with your working life, and share your thoughts and experiences with the group. Please note, there are no synchronous activities, webinars, etc – which means that it is available for any timezone – and nothing is compulsory. You will probably want to commit a couple of hours a week on this, but once again it is up to you how much time you devote to it. Your Workshop Guide will be Jane Hart who will also be available to answer any questions you might have. Remember, acquiring these new skills takes time and practice; so it’s about making small incremental changes to the way that you learn.
This workshop is suitable for
Anyone who wants to acquire or refine their own digital learning strategies, and/or for educators and workplace learning professionals who want to consider how to help others (students, employees) to do so too.
“Thank you for the experience! You provided a wealth of tools and allowed us to learn at our own pace based on where we are today and where we would like to go! I really appreciated and know that the tools I have discovered and adopted will continue to make a difference for me!”
