Each day more opportunities arise in my PLN. Lately, I have been spending a lot of time trying to learn new skills and enhance my knowledge base. It seems that every time I think I have a handle on something, a new approach, strategy or research comes along. I guess that is what makes me a life-long learner.
Today, I found out about several FREE virtual conferences. They offer the ability to learn wherever you are. No need to travel which helps with the budget issues and I did say "free". Be sure to check these out and add them to your calendar.
