Hi! As we continue to develop content at Maddie's Fund, we're curious as to how YOU prefer to consume information. Is it through:
Does it depend on the topic or how much time you have? We'd love your thoughts!
I personally prefer to watch videos and take courses that are online and self paced. That way I do not feel rushed and as with almost everyone here, we are being pulled in multiple directions so being able to come back to a video or self paced online course is helpful for me. I also like the fact that I can go back and get information again. Thank you.

Since there's so much going on during the day and I never know if I'll be able to join a meeting , watching video or online self-paced courses are the preferred option for me
I take advantage of all options but a self-paced course is great when I have too much to do during the day. Each option offers different resources. Thank you for finding so many ways to get the information out there.
I personally prefer to read over watching videos, but I like the idea of online self-paced courses as well. With the day to day responsibilities at our sanctuary and also running a profit biz my days are very full. Most times I am not available when the zoom meetings are planned.
Personally I like podcasts or webinars or online self paced ones. Live are fine as long as they can be watched at a later time.
I like to mix it up! I love large annual events with inspirational and educational keynote speakers that also offer great networking with peer opportunities. I love video meetings such as Maddie's Weekly where I can see people and hear from a leader in the field, but where I have flexibility to step away for a second if needed. I also LOVE the opportunity to raise money for my organization while I learn! Talk about WIN/WIN! I'm an avid reader and devour print/online information sources. Of course, I love learning from people in the field here in Kansas, animal owners, humans in need to help their animals! I just want to learn to do more and do BETTER!
I prefer to have a combination- videos and self paced courses are great as I can do them as I have time. In person conferences are amazing because it gives us a chance to network with other organizations and ask questions in real time!
Keep up the great work! I love your organization and all the information you put out!
These responses are very helpful! Thanks everyone. Keep 'em coming.
