It can be difficult though, can’t it? In theory, we can all appreciate the idea and purpose of professional development, but actually finding the time and getting started is a different story.
Well, you’re in luck.
There will also be an opportunity for us to join with WALT in a special workshop looking at how to record and report your learning. Reflecting on your learning effectively is a skill that we can all work on together; so stay tuned for details of that event.
We’re starting up a brand new club for you to come and work on your own PD in a social and collaborative setting. Think of it like a book club, but for learning! Each month we’ll check out alibrary related article, video, website, app, or new piece of tech and then get together to discuss what we discovered.
To get the ball rolling, our first session will look at the ALIA PD Career Development Kit. Have you done it yet? If you’re just starting the PD scheme it’s a wonderful tool for focusing what you need, and what you care about. Plus, it scores you 20 points right out the gate. You would be surprised how much less daunting it is to accumulate the points you need each year when you sit down and make a plan.
