There are many social media tools available today that can have powerful results in your professional endeavors. This presentation is about working in the open. I want you to know how to build your personal learning network and effectively use that network to reduce your workload, create better programs and become recognized as an expert in your field. From this presentation you will learn the best practices for getting started in working out loud as well as how to select the tools you need to be effective and productive.
Today I hosted and presented an eXtension webinar based on my article entitled, "Extension and The Maker Movement" published in the Journal of Extension. My co-author and co-presenter was my colleague Dave Francis. In case you missed it, you can get the recording here.
Here are my presentation resources:
This past week I was on vacation. I had so much on my mind from work, all I really wanted to do was work.
I love what I do, however, as an Extension professional the lines between work and life are often blurred. I also carry an iPhone on my person most the day, so the idea of a work/life balance is impossible. I'm just working on a figuring out a healthy work/life blend.
Nevertheless, I did not do any (Extension) work during my vacation. I was 90% unplugged for five straight days. I took care of only urgent issues at night, but only for a few minutes because I was completely exhausted.
How did I disconnect?
I design, plan, and evaluate economic development programs for Utah State University.
