Online Learning for Professional Development – What’s Right for You?
You know the importance of lifelong learning to your professional development, especially in tech, and you love the convenience of learning online, but how do you choose the right online learning program for you?
In this presentation, we will explore the gamut of online learning, from micro (even nano!) learning to full-fledged degree programs, and align their features to your career goals. Are you looking to refine your skills or learn something new? Is this just for you or are you hoping to have something to show for your efforts, like a digital badge or a certificate? How do you learn best – by seeing or by doing, in collaboration with others or solo? How flexible can you be with your time? Together, we’ll map out the options and leave you with a plan to achieving your learning goals in a way that is most meaningful for you.
