#TexBEST15 Twitter Town Halls on Career Pathways 8/11-13, 2015

Dear PD, Career Pathways, and Technology Colleagues,

Given the recent discussions on using social media for professional development, I wanted to share this opportunity with you that I am fortunate to be a part of. It would be great if many of us could join these Twitter conversations and experience Twitter as a learning tool, esp. if you haven't used Twitter yet. I welcome your questions or comments, and I'd like to hear about your experiences using Twitter as PD after the events.

Summertime Reading, Learning, and Twitter Lists

Dear PD Colleagues,

I hope your summer’s going well! I’d like to know what you’ve been doing this summer with respect to your own professional development. What is your learning goal this summer? What are you reading? Or, what areas of interest (as it intersects with adult education) grab your attention most? It might be a broad topic. Or maybe you’re interested in learning a new tool, device, software, or social media that will help you to improve your practice in teaching or professional development.
