Professional Development 2.0: Social Media and Personal Learning Networks
2:00 - 3:00pm Eastern

Derek Bruff, Vanderbilt University

Thanks to the recent explosion of online social media and networking tools, options for college and university faculty and staff interested in expanding their personal learning networks (PLNs) have greatly increased.  In the past, ongoing professional development for those in academe happened largely through conferences and print resources such as books and journals.  As the Web took off in the 90s, Web sites and email lists became useful tools, too.  Now options for our own professional development include blogs, podcasts, Twitter, and social networking sites, among others!  Why and how might you use these Web 2.0 tools as part of your PLN to learn from others in your field?  In this session, we’ll explore that question through case studies, discussion, and some hands-on experimentation.  And if you already use one or more of these tools, plan to share your experiences!

Don't forget that you can register for a FridayLive! FASTPASS.  This enables you to attend FridayLive! every session without registering.

NOTE:  Login instructions for the session will be sent in the Registration Confirmation Email. Please check your Junk folder as sometimes these emails get trapped there. We will also send an additional login reminder 24 hours prior to the start of the event.
