Reflection - Deep thinking
I am doing this course as part of my personal CPD. I was really lucky to find out about it through one of the library groups I follow (I think it was SLS on google?). I work in a public library so there isn't any money for training outside of that which is deemed integral to the role or with new ways of working, and much of this is done inhouse. I have relished the chance to connect with other professionals and learn about things that could expand the work I do in the children's library and promote my library in the wider community.
I started the course a little late but find the reflective sessions helpful both as breathing spaces and as consolidation tools to deepen learning, My advice to other participants would be to do the work little and often; even if it is just to read the notes or look at one link it all helps and means that you have done something on those busy days.
I have contacted the Rudai team once with a technical question via email and they replied quickly and succinctly without making me feel daft! It does feel as if there is an invisible wall of professionals supporting and willing us on which can only be good!!
