This week’s topic has really allowed me to piece together everything I have learnt in the module so far and begin to see a bigger picture. For example, the recap in my Topic 3 blog provided context to the issue with information learnt previously.
Now that we are officially half way through the module, I am glad to see myself improving my blog posts and building upon the feedback I have been provided in the past few weeks. Below is an outline of the aims I had for this week and how I managed (if I did at all) to achieve them.
I also saw an increase in innovative approaches to the task by other bloggers. Whilst admittedly I took a fairly straightforward approach, I was very interested to see other ideas I had not considered. In particular, Sharon discussed how to deal with online criticism which I hadn’t realised the importance of other people’s content about you when establishing your own professional profile. I also noticed how Brad highlighted the importance of developing a personal brand online, even offering advice on utilising creative programmes like Canva.com to develop business cards. Personal branding was something I touched upon in my blog, but Brad’s ideas led me to rethink how I brand my Twitter profile. I decided to make it more professional and utilise the network of over 500 followers I have. The changes made can be seen in the image below.
In the final two weeks, I will really focus on developing my evaluative and analytical skills as well as immersing myself more in other non-course resources.
