My current Professional Development activities are limited to reading my ISTC quarterly magazine and browsing some relevant material online…
I am a sole technical author so I have no natural career progression in my current post, so I have decided 2013 is the year to put some more effort in and move things up a gear.
My company have agreed to send me to TCUK – a 3 day technical communicators conference in the UK in September.
I have ordered three books to get my teeth into:
1. Design for How People Learn (Voices that Matter) by Julie Dirksen
2. e-Learning by Design by William Horton
3. Infographics: The Power of Visual Storytelling by Jason Lankow
I will report back here how get on with these activities. Design for How People Learn certainly looks like a fun read.
