Summary transcript for 30 May 2013 #AWCchat: Professional Development

Thanks to everyone who participated in our 56th #AWCChat on Twitter, about communications learning and professional development.

The chat was run by the AWC National Board Chair Maria Henneberry, who kindly stepped in at the last minute. Turnout was low, but we’ve learned that even when it seems like no one is around, there are “lurkers” who are absorbing the discussion.

Maria threw out a lot of questions and thoughts – take a look at them in the transcript and send her a tweet at @MariaHenneberry if you have feedback on any of it. She’d love to hear from you!
