Since most of us fall into the Student/New Professional category, I imagine that there are many among us who:
A) Are interested in professional development opportunities
B) Don’t get institutional support or funding for professional development.
So, I was curious… what kinds of opportunities are folks taking advantage of in terms of free or cheap professional development? I know that most of us keep up with professional literature and read a lot online, but I’m primarily interested in having people share their sources for more structured learning. Opportunities like Five Weeks to a Social Library would certainly fit into this category, as would some of the courses offered through Infopeople, including this upcoming online course offered by Meredith Farkas of Information Wants to Be Free.
Anyone want to add a favorite source for free/cheap workshops?
