Description

Technology is constantly evolving, and information professionals evolve with it - but how do we start teaching ourselves new skills? Constantly updating your repertoire of digital skills can be a daunting task, but don't despair! During this workshop you'll hear about techniques that will help you start learning a new digital tool in your area, then we'll work as a group to find motivation, strategize, and get started on learning. Everyone will leave with a plan to teach yourself a skill of your choice, complete with goals, plans to find help, and learning resources shared by fellow participants. This workshop hopes to lower the barrier of entry to self-teaching so that when the spark of inspiration strikes, we're prepared with the tools necessary to make our projects successful.
