How do you stay on top of the deluge of information related to your job and professional development? And how do you make sense of this information, apply it to achieve your goals, and share it with others?

Personal knowledge management (PKM) offers a process to gather, organize, save, and use knowledge gained related to one’s work activities. PKM routines vary from person to person, yet all share a commitment to ongoing information gathering, sense making, and sharing that not only fuels one’s professional development but can foster connections and community with like-minded professionals.

Topics discussed in this program include:

• How to clarify your professional “learning” goals
• Analyzing your professional networks with these goals in mind
• Evaluating and curating the information you collect
• How to share and communicate your insight
• Putting it all together in your PKM practice
