My Goals for this blog in 2015 are:
- Complete the Social Learning Practitioner Program – write at least one blog post for each activity (by March 2015)
- Support completion of 702010 Practitioner Certification through the 702010 Forum
- Reflect on what I am doing in work and professional development, the results I am getting, and develop action plans for improvement; hold myself accountable by reviewing progress against these plans
Deepen learning from other activities (especially conferences, webinars, Twitter chats and reading)
Build and contribute to my Personal Learning Network
Build a long-term archive that I can use to remember what I’m learning and see differences over time (my thanks to Sacha Chua for this goal – it’s from “A No-Excuses Guide to Blogging” which I am using as a resource to improve my blogging).
Key Topics I will focus on this year (yes, I do intend to be focussed this year…):
- social learning
- showing your work / working out loud
- Communities of Practice
- Enterprise Social Networks (ESNs)
Specific Improvements I will make to my blogging:
- shorter posts
- more frequent posts – minimum two per month
- visual representation of content, especially Sketchnotes and mind maps (I am a novice so expect big learning curve)
- create and maintain outlines to sustain pipeline of blog posts
What about my SharePoint blog on the internal ESN?
To minimise duplication of effort I shall write as much as possible on my public blog and link from SharePoint where the subject matter supports organisational goals (which should be the majority of posts).
Additionally I will use Sharepoint blog to:
- communicate internally about Supply Chain Technical Academy activities and programs (Monday Weekly Wrap / Featured Program)
- encourage others within my organisation to show their work / work out loud ( post daily tips as a micro-learning flow)
- acknowledge and thank others (especially, but not exclusively, through Thank You Thursday campaign)
- share links to relevant external resources (similar to Harold Jarche’s “Friday’s Finds“)
