Professional Learning Networks
From Taylor Ingles
In this presentation, Dr. Renée Harmon will introduce audience members to the concept of Professional Learning Networks (PLNs). PLNs were first developed and used by K-12 teachers; however, Dr. Harmon will highlight how they are useful in any industry. PLNs are great tools to build a community of learners, both in-person and online, which the latter will be the focus of this presentation. Audience members will learn about the history of PLNs, the benefits of having PLNs, and designing PLNs in an online environment. Dr. Harmon will provide examples of how to build, manage, and utilize PLNs for continued professional development.
