Occasionally I will write a series of posts related to Professional Development. As with the Brain 101, links to any given collection will be posted here to make it easy to follow the entire series, with the most recent series appearing at the top of the page.
My own professional development has been enhanced over the years by attending the Learning & the Brain conference, as well as other conferences about the brain. To see the many posts that emerged from my attendance, click Learning & the Brain to be taken to the tag cloud (also accessible on the right of the Home page of this blog). I have also taken several drawing classes, Flash classes, and participated in a Lincoln Center arts workshop. Posts about these experiences can be accessed via the tag cloud of drawing. And of course, you can always visit the tag cloud to see all posts related to Professional Development.
