Technology Integration Learning Sessions April 19, 2010

One of the most powerful and enjoyable things that we do within our department is host regular “learning sessions.”

We block off time each Thursday afternoon to meet face-to-face to discuss and prepare for upcoming events, training sessions, etc.

A recurring, regular agenda item for these weekly department meetings is a learning session.

Any member of our group can request a session on a topic that they would like to know more about and another member with knowledge of that topic will host the session.

Due to mandated testing last week, we had significantly more time together in the office.  That allowed us to have several learning sessions throughout the week.  Some of our topics were:

Glogster
Google Apps
Microsoft Tips and Tricks (Word, PowerPoint, OneNote)
Posterous
Quizdom
Voicethread

In addition to being an integral component of my personal learning network, these sessions have allowed me to see just how talented our Instructional Technology team is.  I feel very fortunate to work with a group of individuals that are dedicated to continually honing their craft and are so willing to share their expertise.

I would strongly encourage any team out there to incorporate some type of learning session into the way that you regularly do business.
