Today I’m going back to an earlier post to look at and expand on two of the 11 things I want and need to know more about in my work.
In this week’s Weeknote, I went with this template: 3 things that happened this week. Describe what happened and why it was important.
In this post I outline things I think I want and need to know more about in order to do my work well and support the sector in my knowledge mobilization aspirations.
In today’s weeknote, I’m being a bit more reflective. Thinking out loud about my work and place in the sector. A bit of stream of consciousness I wrote early this morning. Slightly edited. Definitely not polished. I hope that’s OK.
I know I have a strong network. Made up of amazing people who give, share, connect, and want to collaborate as much as possible. And it’s grown remarkably stronger during COVID, especially on LinkedIn, my main online network for sharing and connecting.
I like to write. To share. To find interesting things and get them to you. And I’m always looking for ways to improve what I do and how I do it. This week I started something new. Weeknotes. For the next 13 weeks I’ll be writing and reflecting. And sharing. It will look a bit different from the other stuff I write and share.
This site is active and will always be active as my main consulting site. However, I’m doing most of my writing and blogging over at my Knowledge Mobilization for Settlement site.
I recently came across one of those random “the first 4 words you see in this word scramble are your words for the coming year” or something like that. I saw Connection, Do, Purpose, Power. Those are good. And they resonated with me. So I’m going to think about how they might work for me.
I’m chairing the Task Group and would love to connect about your experiences, challenges, successes, and ideas to move the sector forward toward digital and hybrid service delivery models. Let’s connect so we can learn from your experiences.
So, the short answer is I don’t know. But what I do know is that we can learn from others. So, here are some examples of digital professional development and education in other sectors that we might as well study, learn & borrow from, and build on.
