Book by 3: The Self-Directed Learning Handbook (#sdlchat)

self-directed-learning-handbook-maurice-gibbons-e-book-cover-artI am working my way through The Self-Directed Learning Handbook, ever so slowly…. because it is GOOD! I’m so excited about the ideas and concepts presented by Maurice Gibbons. Would you be interested in reading through it with me? You are invited to participate three ways over the next few months:

1. Participate in the Twitter hashtag chat (#sdlchat).

Simply read through one chapter a week using the calendar below and discuss your thoughts on Twitter by adding the #sdlchat hashtag to tag your tweets. Create a search column in your twitter client that is based on that hashtag so you can follow what others are saying. Discuss, share links, experiences, etc.

(Subscribe to the iCal feed here.)

2.  Join the 3 Google Hangouts.

I’ll be creating a Google Hangout each after weeks 3, 6, and 9 so we can discuss in vocal form. Please complete the poll to help me determine day/time for the Hangouts.

      • Link: TBD (announced here and on Twitter after week 2)
      • Dates: TBD

3. Meet with us in person in Colorado.

I’ll be scheduling a face-to-face book night for early December  where we can wrap up our learning. We could also stream this for those of you out of town. As the chat progresses, we will determine a location. If Denver is a more central location than Loveland, we will try that.

      • Date: early December
      • Location: TBD

My hope for this project is that we will have a strong core of professionals who are investigating self-directed learning who will continue this journey together after the book chat is over. I plan to have a weekly chat scheduled similar to #edchat with a specific question or topic each week directly related to self-directed learning. What do you think? Are you in? If so, please let me know in the comments which ways you will be participating.
