Today, 15 Feb 2018, I’m speaking on ways of taking charge of your own learning at a professional development conference for Administrative Professionals at the University of Wollongong. The conference theme is ‘Be Future Ready’ which I’ve aligned with using the notion of Future Ready Learning.
The first half of my keynote focusses on the WHY – what’s changing in the world of work and why it is now imperative for people to take charge of their own learning. I then provide a high level overview of three approaches to stop waiting for the training bus and getting on your bike to head off on your own or with others to learn for yourself. These are learning from yourself, from resources, and from others.
In 30 minutes I barely have time to touch the surface of the range of ways people can engage in continuous learning. So I’m inviting the session participants to continue the conversation with me by connecting with me on LinkedIn or following me on Twitter. Over the coming fortnight I’ll be posting more about some of the learning approaches and resources I introduce in my keynote so that people can explore them further. I will make posts here on my ‘Michelle Works Out Loud’ page, and share them on my feed on both LinkedIn and Twitter with the hashtag #futurereadylearning so that you can search for them on either platform.
If you are one of the people who attended the University of Wollongong session please let me know via the comments below and/or by messaging me on LinkedIn or Twitter. It’s great to see you following up on the session and eager to take charge of your own learning.
