How do you prefer to consume educational information related to work?

  • 1.  How do you prefer to consume educational information related to work?

    Posted 29 days ago

    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:

    • Watching video (webcasts, live or on-demand)
    • Reading (blog posts, emails, articles)
    • Interactive calls or meetings (live zoom calls, online instructor led courses, forum posts)
    • In person conferences/events
    • Online self-paced courses 
    • Something else? 

    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.

    Hi

    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

    Hi Brittany,

    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!
