The Free eBook: How to become an eLearning Professional. By Connie Malamed I never think of myself as an expert.
Gaining expertise is an ongoing journey of continuous learning where there is no end in sight. Our field is particularly broad and deep. It encompasses aspects of cognitive science, learning theory, user experience, design thinking, human communication, user interface design, visual design, writing and scripting, marketing, business, information technology and probably many other domains.
No one person can retain all of this information and no one person can be competent in all of the related skills. If you think of all the people in this domain as one giant mind, you can see how we gain expertise together. To become a “pro” in this career then, involves getting involved with people in our field and outside of it. Becoming a pro also means staying up-to-date and this is easily done through social media platforms.
Even if you work alone, there’s no excuse for remaining isolated. Connie Malamed Company: Connie Malamed Consulting.
