Let The Social Web Document Your Next Training
May 21, 2009 2 Comments
While driving home from the Maryland Library Association conference I had several hours in the car alone to contemplate things. At some point my mind wondered to those forms that we or at least folks in Maryland have to fill out to receive CEUs.
The form is boring. The form can’t really capture what you may or may not have learned at a training or conference. Why not allow the social web to document your next training or conference as an option. Mind you I know not everyone blogs or Twitters or has a Flickr account but many of us do.
Submit your Twitter stream and the hashtags you used. Give the URL of your Flickr set from the training/conference. Set up a blog and live the sessions you attend. All of these options would give your employer a much better idea of what you got out of a session than some form.
