In The future belongs to those who take charge of their own learning I talked about how enterprise training will only provide you with the skills you need to do your basic duties, so in order to to keep your skills up to date, you will need to take charge of your own professional learning.
And since this is now possible in non-traditional ways, a Professional Learning Portfolio is useful to record and reflect on what you have been learning and to evidence your achievements (formal and otherwise) and demonstrate your commitment as a continuous, professional learner to a potential employer.
There has been a lot of interest in this topic, so I am proposing to run a 2-part, 2 week online workshop at the Social Learning Centre (in December and January), for those who would like to find out more about how to set up their own professional learning portfolio.
Here’s the link to the Professional Learning Portfolios Workshop.
