Week 11 - Wrap Up
The piece that I liked best about the Extension 2.0 was it gave me 'permission' to stop & take time to investigate many new things out on the web. I have heard a lot about different tools ... but haven't taken much time to look because there is always other work to do (& there still is!) ... but this class really allowed me to take time to learn more & intentionally think about how it might fit with my work.
I think these sessions have really been an 'eye opener' or awareness piece for me. I think it has affected my everyday work because I now have enough basic knowledge about several different tools to ask "what about ..." or "what if ..." ... & to think about the possibilities.
I thought the program was very well designed. I appreciate the ability to do the program at a pace that fits my work load -- I started a few weeks late -- but was able to get caught up with no problem. I wouldn't change very much ... but the one thing that might be interesting would be to have groups of EEs who work together discuss the possibilities as a team ... & what the information and resources could mean to their work. THis might work best in work teams or within areas of expertise ... maybe having a special blogs created for each group to dialogue after each week's lesson.
I would be interested in participating in another enrichment course of this nature if it were offered in the future -- dependent upon the topics or focus. I appreciate not having to drive 150 miles to the cities for training! Thanks!
