Personal Learning Network

Branching out through my PLN or Personal Learning Network, which we accomplish through using social media like Twitter. I never had Twitter before entering the interdisciplinary studies program. The first semester I didn’t understand how to use twitter, so I didn’t tweet much or follow anyone. This semester was different though. I tweeted every day, I followed people in my field, I contacted all the major people in the network, and I gained some recognition for myself. I have a network of people who can help me when I don’t know what I am doing in the field. I am building up my contacts and making connections with people across the country. I even made contact with a retired medical illustrator who offered me some insight into the field. He told me to study the computer aspect of medical illustration as it will give me a better leg up in the field.
