On reflection, since I started my blog in January 2010 I have put a lot of effort into making connections and doing some virtual networking. One of the things I want to spend some time on throughout this programme is the reason why I want contacts and how I can use them.
- I was hoping to find advice or suggestions to help me build a feedback culture in my team
- Also by discussion – how to embed professionalism in my team
- To discuss the future and development of my role
- To suggest tools for professional development and how they can work for me
I also wanted to participate in cpd23 for a review of tools for getting organised and for presenting information.
I also want to develop my self-awareness – identifying my strengths and using them, why and how.
Finally, it was also an opportunity to work together with a small group of colleagues on something that none of us have done before.
I use a variety of ways to catch up with blogs, but mostly I collate my favourites into my igoogle page. So, my main goal this week is to find some new blogs from the participants list (and my colleagues). If anyone would like to follow me on twitter I have unlocked my tweets for cpd23 @scarlettlibgirl.
Before I go, one quick stab at making the significance of professionalism visible:
