Continuing education has great benefits and can be very rewarding (to say the least). Sadly, if you’re like most continuing educators, you’ve probably run into challenges of providing exceptional continuing education without support from a passionate community and proper resources. These methods below will help to give you insight on how to stay equipped for continuing education! 😊 📚
1. Engage in Workshops & Training Courses
Workshops and training courses can address common problems or issues that education professionals may collide with on a daily basis. Partakers can share their insights and thoughts on how to resolve the problem, which can offer a fresh perspective when dealing with the problem. It’s also a great way to teach hands-on skills because it offers participants a chance to try out new methods and fail in a safe situation. At the end of the day, we’re all in this learning “thing” together.
2. Always Have Access To Helpful Resources
Education methods are constantly changing and developing. You must learn new techniques of the trade and know what other states and professionals are doing. Having access to the latest topics and continuing education ideas means you can stay well-equipped. Keeping your methods fresh can make your job that much more exciting and rewarding.
3. Join A Community of Supportive CE Professionals
As a continuing educator, feeling like part of a strong community can make a huge difference. Feeling the support of fellow CE Professionals can feel more empowering and rewarding than ever before. Not only that, but it also helps develop relationships and increase partnership opportunities. It’s overall a win-win!
Now, if only there was one single association that catered to all the methods above. There is! At GCEA (Georgia Continuing Education Association), we know that you want to be equipped to provide the best continuing education possible. It is beneficial then to belong to a Georgia-based association that can provide relationships and resources for superior continuing education. We’re the only association of our kind in the state!
