In this post I reflect on my learning from Week 2 of the FutureLearn Course “The Science of Learning.”
So I’ve already broken my New Years resolution of “trying not to take on too much.”
In this post I reflect on my learning from Week 1 of the FutureLearn Course “The Science of Learning.”
During my transition from IT techie to education nerd, I stumbled across a trusty three-pronged question which has stuck with me.
What are you doing? Why are you doing it? What does this help you do that’s important?
Happy New Year! I thought I’d start 2020 with a blog post looking back at 2019. And wow! What a year it has been. 2019 has been a good but extremely busy year. I started 2019 with a little purple notebook and filled it with ideas, notes and a massive to do list. So, in this blog post, I grab a cuppa and reflect….!
Hooray! I finished my WalkMe training and am now a qualified WalkMe Builder.
But hold on a sec, what is WalkMe? Continue reading to find out!
On the 13th of February, I attended the Learning Technologies exhibition. I usually attend the exhibition every other year, and this year it was in a new location – the ExCel Centre in London.
On the 12th of February, I attended 2 London meetups: Articulate user meetup: Speeding up your eLearning workflows and Vyond community meetup: Connect with our team. It was the first time I’d attended these meetups, I met some interesting people and learn some new things!
I’ve been meaning to write this post for a while! I attended my first General Assembly workshop on the 21st of January. After searching for a short course on quick-and-dirty video production, I came across this workshop and thought I’d give it a whirl. At £35 there wasn’t a lot to lose! I was really impressed with the instructor and the venue and really felt as though I learnt a lot. I came away with some valuable skills which I’ve been busy putting into practice!
Earlier this month I submitted my final MA project to the University of Limerick! I felt a massive sense of achievement, it has definitely been an extremely challenging year. I decided to complete an MA in 2016, but just missed the enrolment deadline. I waited a year before I could begin and wow! time has flown. My results are due in November.
This blog post is about the Technical Communication & E-Learning MA offered at Limerick University.
A friend recently asked me “Are you constantly learning?” to which my answer was, yes! I think it’s a bit of an addiction of mine, I just love learning new things. I love the sense of achievement you feel from completing a project, gaining a new qualification or passing an exam.
There are so many things on my list of things to learn and I get frustrated as I don’t always have enough time to learn everything I want to. The world is full of so many things to see, do and learn and I truly believe the possibilities are endless. Learning new things opens up so many new opportunities, it can change your way of thinking and change your life. I am so lucky to have been born in a time where information and learning materials are so readily available.
