Self-Directed Professional Learning

Link: library.wab.edu/wablab/learn

From short badges to deeper courses, learning online can help you take control of your own professional growth. When you're thinking about making professional learning choices, think about: 

  • What do I need for my day-to-day job? 
  • What do I aspire to being able to do? 
  • Is there anything I'm doing that I "just know" could be better (or made easier), but I'm not sure how? 
  • What are my mid to long-term growth goals? 
  • What are some tools I have that I would like to use better? 
  • What have I seen others doing that I'd like to learn about? 
  • Who could help me? Who can I connect with?
