#GuildChat for 07/08/16: Summer Development Planning

Our next #GuildChat takes place Friday, July 8 at 11AM PT/2PM ET. Our topic for this week’s chat is Summer Development Planning.


Ahh, it’s summer in the Northern hemisphere and with the summer days, the slower days, comes down time to reflect on what’s happened and what’s to happen. No better time to make personal development plans.

Personal development takes an obviously unique and independent approach as one makes specific choices in how, when, what, and where learning will take place. How well do you plan for your skill and knowledge development? What tools do you use to map out your strategy and what do you do when motivation wanes?

GuildChat is in summer session. Stroll on in this Friday and explore the ins and outs of development planning with us!

The eLearning Guild has always looked to the community to form the conversations around learning and technology. We’ve taken it a step further however and created a rotating group of  voluntary #GuildChat Advisors!
