#Mynameis Jeni @Jeni_woods_OT
@SLawsonOT A mixture of both... I find that I am increasing using social media #OTalk
Sarah Sharland @SarahSharland19
@OTalk_ Both! I work on my own so end up with a combination #OTalk
deb_OT @dmay_ot
@OTalk_ As a student a lot of my learning is face to face - with my cohort, educators, other OTs I meet but I also learn from friends in other professions (espec education) and have learned so much from #OTalk, online groups etc
Ellen Chisman @EllenChisman
A mixture for me. And variety is good, I find. I would also say that some are very specific to my job role, some more general to OT, and some wider than that e.g. AHP. individual, one-to-one, small, and large groups too. Meetings, webinars, emails, social media... #OTalk

Sorry I’m late @SLawsonOT #OTalk, here now
Bill Wong, OTD, OTR/L @BillWongOT
Hello #OTalk
OTalk @OTalk_
@Louisepenny87 @Kirstie_OT @TRAMMCPD @SLawsonOT @hearled Hey Louise & your friendly bear! #OTalk
Hannah Silcock @Scrumpess
@SLawsonOT I think virtual is taking a much more active role in learning, especially as purse strings are tightened in the NHS. There is so much at our finger tips for learning online though and you can learn something new most times you look... #otalk
#Hellomynameis Sarah @SLawsonOT
Q2: If you are the only Occupational Therapist in your team how do you ensure that you are not professionally isolated and keep up to date with your CPD? #OTalk
#Hellomynameis Sarah @SLawsonOT
@SarahSharland19 @OTalk_ Hi SArah, are you the only OT within a team? #otalk
#Mynameis Jeni @Jeni_woods_OT
@SLawsonOT Also my learning communities are expanding across a range of professions #OTalk
#Hellomynameis Sarah @SLawsonOT
@preston_jenny Yes, the networking opportunities are huge in the online world #otalk
Ellen Chisman @EllenChisman
Similarly for me I think atm being a preceptor - supervision, our preceptorship days with a group of AHPs, other team members - I agree, and then sort of coming out of that to see what others far and wide are doing or know about :-) #otalk
OTalk @OTalk_
Question 2... #OTalk
Sarah Sharland @SarahSharland19
@SLawsonOT @OTalk_ Yes, so I get a lot of learning from MDT colleagues but have to find my own OT stuff #OTalk
Lynne Merrett @ot_lynne
Just lurking this evening, hoping to get some ideas #otalk
Holly Graham @HollyGtheOT
@SLawsonOT A mix of both too. We have in services, journal club and lots of informal ways of learning from each other. I also like to look a lot at journals independently. I try to use social media too but not such a fanatic for it! #OTalk
#Hellomynameis Sarah @SLawsonOT
@Jeni_woods_OT Hi Jeni, what do you find that social media offers you as a learning community? #otalk
Sophie is my name. @ciderwithsophie
@SLawsonOT Apart from online, i feel like my "learning community" is small- whilst in theory I always learn from other professions etc, I would love to have more indepth learning on an Evidence based way.. #OTALK
Bill Wong, OTD, OTR/L @BillWongOT
@SLawsonOT Mostly virtual- you guys, and then a couple groups I am associated with in AOTA. #otalk

@Louisepenny87 @OTalk_ @Kirstie_OT @TRAMMCPD @hearled Hi Louise, welcome to #otalk

@SLawsonOT I also find myself going to #OTALK and FB OT groups more for advice, as i feel like they are more on my wavelength with up to date/passionate learning.

I think one of the most important things to avoid professional isolation is developing a support network such as mentorship - lots of opportunities #OTalk

#Mynameis Jeni @Jeni_woods_OT
@SLawsonOT I think it’s the opportunity to get information quickly or the opportunity to ask for support more readily. It’s also easy to find contacts and or subjects that are of interest #OTalk
Lelanie @LelanieBrewer
@preston_jenny Me too #OTalk
Bill Wong, OTD, OTR/L @BillWongOT
@hearled Or a community of practice. For me, being in community of leaders is actually very beneficial because I got a group of motivated peers that we got to work on projects together. #otalk
Deb Hearle @hearled
@Scrumpess @SLawsonOT I agree, so many invaluable communities and learning opps on line #OTalk
Louise @Louisepenny87
@SLawsonOT A combination of both. Learning from your team is invaluable, but virtual learning can be so much broader, and more accessible. I participated in a MOOC(?) a couple of years ago from @OT_SHU which was a great learning platform #OTalk
#Hellomynameis Sarah @SLawsonOT
@Scrumpess Hi Hannah, I agree with you. Could you say something about how you manage the shear wealth of information available for your learning? #otalk

#OTalk
Lynne Merrett @ot_lynne
Re Q2: I have some virtual contact but do try to make the time to go to events to meet other OT's and also meet up for peer support with a friend who is an OT #otalk
Hannah Silcock @Scrumpess
@SINetwork There are so many online courses now which makes it so much more convenient to be able to do in your own time and not having to add in the expense of travel/accommodation. I do find out about most of mine via social media... it seems to have been a game-changer #otalk
Louise @Louisepenny87
@Scrumpess @SLawsonOT And always a risk that what you are learning isn’t the most robust, so can take more time to think about the credentials #OTalk
#Hellomynameis Sarah @SLawsonOT
Q3: How important do you consider your learning communities to be for your CPD? What do you gain personally and/or collectively from your learning communities? #OTalk
Carolina Cordero 🌈 @colourful_ot
@SLawsonOT As a student I suppose my most obvious learning community (aside from #OTalk) is my classmates - especially as we get further into the course it feels like we're learning from each other as well as just learning together

@OTalk_ Hi Sally, yes, virtual world can feel a bit overwhelming. #otalk
Bill Wong, OTD, OTR/L @BillWongOT
@SLawsonOT 10/10 in importance. Being in my kind of clinical environment, sometimes I need external motivation to improve myself as an OT. #otalk
#Hellomynameis Sarah @SLawsonOT
@colourful_ot @OTalk_ @Kirstie_OT @TRAMMCPD @hearled Hi Carolina #otalk we're just finding out about peoples thoughts and experiences of their learning communities and how they can help with learning and CPD #otalk
OTalk @OTalk_
@SallyScottRobe1 It becomes easier the more you engage #OTalk
#Mynameis Jeni @Jeni_woods_OT
@SLawsonOT Really important - which I have only recently come to realise in the past few years. My learning communities enable to be test out new ways of thinking / or critically reflect in a safe supportive environment. #OTalk
Bill Wong, OTD, OTR/L @BillWongOT
@SLawsonOT @OTalk_ For me, that will be a virtual community + taking on a project that is overwhelming is very overwhelming. #otalk
Hannah Silcock @Scrumpess
@SLawsonOT I think it is about really considering how much it will benefit you and focusing on those and shelving others. Sometimes I pass things on to others who may be better suited/have a deeper interest & then through collaboration learn through them later/diseminated learning #otalk
#Hellomynameis Sarah @SLawsonOT
Do you have any tips for finding relevant contacts and information #otalk
Dr Jenny Preston MBE @preston_jenny
I enjoy the networking, the challenge of different perspectives makes me think and reflect, and all the references and resources are really helpful #OTalk
Sally Scott-Roberts @SallyScottRobe1
@hearled #OTalk I am increasingly using online as well as face to face. It has taken me a while to move beyond my technological phobias to be able to make the most of what is out there.
Sophie is my name. @ciderwithsophie
@OTalk_ Learning communities are what keep me up to date and challenged in the way i think. It leads to me finding new ways of looking at things and considering my gaps in knowledge/possible ways to fill the gaps #OTALK
OTalk @OTalk_
Could be flipped... some who are tech savvy may feel less confident in approaching someone in person or their verbal debate skills? #OTalk Different learning styles/preferences maybe?

deb_OT @dmay_ot
@ot_lynne I think meeting up with others is so important. There aren't *many* online spaces where dialogues are completely open, threads can be ravelled and and information challenged. #OTalk is quite special in that regard!
#Mynameis Jeni @Jeni_woods_OT
@SLawsonOT I tend to look at using hashtags or search on key terms to find information, groups, webinars, contacts. #OTalk
Louise @Louisepenny87
@SLawsonOT I don’t think this question needs to have the caveat of being a lone OT (although I’m sure that has its challenges). A similar question would be about how do you ensure you have a broad professional network and are proactive with your own CPD #OTalk
Deb Hearle @hearled
@colourful_ot @SLawsonOT Learning from each other is so important #OTALK which is why it is always invaluable for all students to participate in learning activities
Sophie is my name. @ciderwithsophie
I was at my "Promoting evidence based practice" group the other day, professionals all interested in promoting EB yet none of them knew about #otalk or FB OT groups.. 🤔..!! I didn't understand how they manage...!

Lynne Merrett @ot_lynne
@dmay_ot Yes, hurray for #OTalk!
#Hellomynameis Sarah @SLawsonOT
@preston_jenny @SetG75 Yes, and there seems to be more and more people using the CDF to identify and engage in learning and hopefully going on to apply the learning in practice #otalk

@Louisepenny87 What about if it's something you learn which you don't apply for a long time? #otalk I'm really interested in this, it is often something people ask, 'how do I know what to record for CPD if I don't know when I'll use it' #otalk
Dr Jenny Preston MBE @preston_jenny
When it changes my practice or helps me make sense of my thinking and decision making. Impact is important so I'm always thinking how will this make a difference #OTalk
Bill Wong, OTD, OTR/L @BillWongOT
@SLawsonOT For me in terms of learning about leadership, I would actually take moments to reflect, and then pass on such lessons to anybody who wants to learn from such too. #otalk
Sally Scott-Roberts @SallyScottRobe1
@SLawsonOT @colourful_ot #OTalk Whilst not related to academic development I do seem to find myself on sites such as pinterest in search of new resources to use with the children I work with and getting far too overexcited about being able to modify them to use with a specific individual.
OT Child (Kat Carruthers) @OT_Child
@SLawsonOT If the learning, theory or discussion is then linked to an action whether that is reflection or leading to practice change. I don’t think CPD is passive #OTalk

@OTalk_ Students! Networking, attending conferences, email groups, journals, magazines, connecting with friends I studied with. #OTalk
Louise @Louisepenny87
@SLawsonOT Interesting question. I guess, if HCPC pulled me up to audit, would I use a piece of evidence that was something that I wasn’t using right now but I may do in 5 years - probably not. But I would certainly bank the knowledge and save it for later #OTalk

@dmay_ot Good point Deb, and Louise is right about sometimes confirming you're doing the right thing but sometimes it might also be that you need to stop doing something because you learn there is better way #otalk does that make sense in a tweet???
Sophie is my name. @ciderwithsophie
@SLawsonOT I never properly take the time to sit and think about it analytically. However I think this has been helped by completing a module on CPD as it has got me thinking about everything in that way. #OTALK
Hannah Silcock @Scrumpess
@SLawsonOT @Louisepenny87 If it goes in your toolbox of tricks, it is CPD, whether it is to be used now or at a later date. It is then CPD again when you go back to it and pull it out, reflect on it and check if it is still current #otalk
Ellen Chisman @EllenChisman
I have been trying to make sure I return to my reflections, activities etc to record how I have applied my learning. The @TRAMMCPD resources help me do this - I write in red text on the trail and tracker that I need to return to do this until it is done! #OTalk

I think it is perfectly reasonable for learning to occur over time, a bit like longitudenal research. Those deeper reflections need time so don't rush it #OTalk
OT Child (Kat Carruthers) @OT_Child
