Whew -- I thought I would zip through these "trainings" every week and be on schedule. Uffda - I got off schedule a few weeks and have had a challenge catching up and of course, missed the Oct 15 deadline. But, my personal deadline was Annual Conference and I made that although Conference starts tomorrow in Duluth!
Thanks for the chance to be exposed to a lot of tools. Communications is really important in our world but there are so many ways to communicate today and it's hard to keep up-to-date with all the techy stuff. Because of this training, I feel I had a chance to experience some of it but don't think I can talk the language yet! Also, I can't remember all the things I did!
Although there is a LOT of stuff I learned and was exposed to, I can't experience it all but at least I know there are some other people in the organization I can turn to for suggestions and tips. I hope this information will be kept someplace so I can refer back to it. Or, should I be printing off info from each week?
To be honest, one of the things I'm not sure is useful for me is the blogging. I don't think anyone else is reading my blog 'cause I don't think anyone knows my blog address!!!! I suppose I could clean up my blog and share the address with others -- my responsibility! I suppose that is one of the downsides of blogs - how do you know anyone reads it or cares???
One of the things I want to try in the next 6-9 months is web conferencing. Yes, it was the last "class" I participated in and the one I remember the best but it's something I have thought about doing for many months and feel more comfortable with it with my very limited hands-on experience during the "class". I am sure I will need help but I also am sure there will be other staff who are willing to help as I get into it.
Thanks again for all your hard work putting these classes together -- Amy: "we are justly proud of you"!
