Narrate Your Work

Log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

There are many social media tools available today that can have powerful results in your professional endeavors. Come learn how to build your personal learning network and effectively use that network to reduce your workload, create better programs and become recognized as an expert in your field. This session will discuss criteria for selecting the tools to help you get started, and best-practices for getting started.

3 takeaway messages that participants will receive
— To become known as an expert in a field, you have to share what you know. 
— Working in the open can help you build your personal learning network. 
— Narrating your work can be an effective training and mentoring tool. 

Improved communications is essential to eliminate duplicate work and collaborating. Collaborating is essential to creating excellent programs. “Narrating your work” is an effective way to improve communications and share what you are doing and learn what others are doing.

If you start each project from ground zero, you will never build an awesome program. But, if you can build on what others have done, then the same time investment can take you much farther.  The only way you can build on what others have done is to know what they are doing. 

Build your Personal Learning Network and connect with the experts in your field. Chances are they are not the people in your normal chain of command. You will probably find them across the country or world or it may be a coworker a few counties away.

Why not set the example and start sharing what you are working on and what you are learning? Become the mentor to your colleagues that are just starting. Become famous for what you know - at least within your circles.
