Adobe Train the Trainer 2014:Unexpected Benefits

I am half way thru the Train the Trainer course developed and managed by Adobe Education. Check out edex.adobe.com for more information and to keep an eye out for their next offering! So far, I have had a great time! Not just for the expected refresher on Education Theory and Adobe software, but also the unexpected effects! I have always had an interest to expand my training and instructional design experience, and through talking with other T4T members and staff I have a renewed and even more motivated interest! If that makes sense…hope it does.

I have been analyzing my “brand” as it relates to my professional interests. While still a work in progress, it feels great to be back at it in a more regular fashion. Having the weekly assignments and community chats gives me a guaranteed time to check in and take action. I can say that after 4-5 weeks I have definitely increased the attention spent on this area. As I alluded to earlier, I have always been interested in doing more and better defining my Professional persona but this has already proven to be more productive. Whether at work, or on my own, I have periodically posted to Twitter or shared interesting articles…but just in the last month I have:

  • Networked with countless educators and others in Education
  • Followed many of the same on Adobe Ed Ex and Twitter
  • Revised my personal blog and added this, a new PROFESSIONAL blog
  • Started analyzing my skills and experiences as it relates to my professional brand

I look forward to the next month (and beyond) to what I will experience and the people I will meet!!!
