2015: the year of learning and development

Gosh, didn’t 2014 go quickly! That’s my poor excuse for the pitiful 6 blog posts I managed last year, anyway… Despite setting a professional goal*┬álast January┬áto blog at least once per month, after the first few months I didn’t manage to post anything at all until my new job announcement in August, and then didn’t […]

I ate’nt dead: resurrecting my blog for 2014

(With apologies to Sir Terry Pratchett for the title) So, it’s been more than nine months since I last updated this blog. I managed a grand total of two blog posts in 2013. Whoops… There are probably several reasons for the precipitous decline in my blogging. My professional writing has taken other outlets in the […]

Looking back and looking ahead

Thing 19: Catch-up week & integrating the Things

This post is part of 23 Things for Professional Development. This Thing was initially supposed to be a “catch-up”, to give us all a chance to catch our breath and look back on all the Things that went before it. Well, I got rather behind with my Thing blogging, so am writing this seven weeks […]

Reflective writing

A couple of weeks ago, I went on a Reflective Writing course run by CILIP, as part of my chartership preparation. It was a really useful course, and I’d recommend it even if you’re not chartering – reflective practice in general is important for any kind of CPD, and this course was a useful way […]
