Guest post by @Heatherclarinet about how she has used Social Media for CPD

Here is a guest post by Heather O’Leary (@Heatherclarinet), who reflects here on how her use of Social Media has contributed to her Continuing Professional Development:

I first began using social media (SM) professionally after rediscovering my twitter account, and a slow Saturday afternoon searching by interest. I began tweeting about my experiences as an OT student; lectures I’d just been too, articles I had just read, and calls for help with assignments! I then started my blog when I struggled to fit everything I had to say into 140 characters! My main outputs of SM are on twitter, participating formally in OTuesday, NHSSM and more recently, OTalk and OChat. I also use twitter for informal discussions with OT students from other universities, practicing OTs and academics (a personal highlight was a tweet from E Duncan!).

I get a lot of benefits from my use of SM, the main one being the opportunity to communicate with so many other people, each with their own interesting stories and viewpoints on current issues. It allows exposure to a wider range of opinions – and with NHSSM, not just from OT perspectives – which breeds constructive debates. Another benefit of using SM is the speed at which information in shared. Previously we talked of how journals bypassed text books in getting information out there, now with SM your news, findings, thoughts and experiences are spread to a waiting audience instantly! I also find  SM is a nice fall back for those days when the work can get too much, as a gentle reminder of why OT is so fantastic, why we do it, and mostly importantly why we love it!

 Thank you so much for your post, Heather, I’m sure it’s going to be useful to lots of other OTs to firm up their thinking about how Social Media has helped them in their development.

#Occhat topic Tuesday 29th November

#Occhat Tuesday 29th November 2011 8-9pm GMT
The occupied self: the role of occupation in identity
Dr Jackie Taylor from Salford University will be joining us to discuss her research into the relationship between occupation and identity and how this knowledge can be applied in OT practice.
To make best use of this opportunity you are encouraged to listen to Dr.Taylor’s presentation from last year’s World OT day online conference before the session and consider some questions or points you would wish to discuss further.
To access the presentation please use this link http://ot4ot.weebly.com/world-ot-day-schedule.html then scroll down to find presentation 9: Rebuilding damaged identities through occupation.

#OTalk re: Tweetchat 8th November 2011

Apologies that the blog from this week’s OTalk chat has taken until now to upload.

This week, we talked about the use of Social Media tools in our Continuing Professional Development (CPD), and the transcript can be found here.

We discovered that the OTs who participated in the Tweetchat were already using Social Media to grow as professionals, as well as in their personal lives.

They were using these Social Network Sites (SNS) for CPD.

One of the first issues to arise was the question of whether or not to seperate personal and professional Social Media activity.

Opinion was divided about the issue.

Some felt it was simply too much effort to maintain two accounts:

or that it would be dull if people followed two accounts:

Others were concerned that using SNS was risky and might not be approved of by potential employers:

Ultimately, it is up to the individual to regulate their Social Media Use in line with our employers policies, our professional Code of Ethics and HPC standards for registration.

Many people discussed the idea that in Occupational Therapy we aim to be congruent, internalising the professional values and core skills of our training and expressing them everyday through our personalities:

We also discussed how using Social Media tools enabled us to feel a sense of belonging to a wider OT community of practice

We concluded by asking what ways we could evidence our use of Social Media for use in our CPD folders. Some people were aware of the need to capture their activity in hard copy, and felt that this wasn’t always easy with Social Media:

Others were looking at developing e-portfolios and blogs to record key moments in their Social Media activity for CPD:

We were reassured to hear that it was possible to attribute the statements made by others as part of our CPD, and got plenty of new ideas about tools to try out, or new ways to capture our activity.

So, thanks to everyone who participated in the chat. This is just a summary of the talk, don’t forget to check the transcript to see the entire conversation.
