Take advantage of additional opportunities to learn from your peers with tools such as Facebook, Google Hangouts, blogs, and other online communities. In this session, North Carolina Master Trainers Lori Reed and Jessica O’Brien will get you started as you learn how to: Crowdsource answers to questions big and small; Prevent information burnout and overload; and create your own personal learning environment.
