Jan: Developing Personal/Professional Online Networks

January 8, 2014
3-4pm Eastern

What is an online Personal/Professional Learning Network (PLN), and why does everyone need one? PLNs are intentionally created learning networks set up to support your non-formal learning needs. These learning networks are powered by your learning objective(s), the types of people you choose to include, social capital, and who’s in the network. What is more, it is increasingly clear that strong personal online networks play a role in the growth of organizational online community and networks.

In this webinar, we’ll cover the value of developing your online PLN, stages of growth, factors that influence the strength and development of any personal learning network, and PLN learning objectives. We’ll also discuss the relationship between online PLNs and an organization’s greater online presence.
