These are some of the things written on the big whiteboard in TLDC HQ:
Daily Professional Development.
The Importance of Routine.
It’s what we’ve been focused on since we launched TLDChat and what we’re building upon with our new Membership and Subscription program.
We are constructing a completely new and different type of Community. It’s one that is enabled by a few very unique things:
1) Technology. Is it really possible to meet every weekday morning with like-minded peers to discuss topics relevant to your career and professional development? Is it possible that every day you can actively expand your network and find others that might be having the same kind of professional challenges you are having? Over the last four months, we’ve proven the answer is a resounding YES. And we are able to do that through the crowdcast platform on the web browser in your computer. Every weekday.
2) YOU. Maybe you’re an Instructional Designer. Or a Teacher. Or Trainer. Or the IT person that is responsible for developing all of the training materials in your org. Or the technical writer that drew the short straw. Whatever your “role” is, you’re an educator, a sharer, generous by nature, interested in helping others do better. And here’s TLDChat. Full of people just like you. And together, we are better.
3) US (aka, TLDC.us). We love what we do. Call it Training. Call it Learning. Call it Development. Call it Instructional Design. Call it whatever you’d like, but we have a passion for it and the people that do it. And it helps that we love bringing these people together not just every weekday in a virtual setting, but at least once a year face-to-face, if not more! It also helps to know we’ve been at this for nineteen months and have loved every moment of it – without putting a single penny into our pockets.
So about that.
Here’s where we start to get amazing.
By signing up for a membership or subscription, you’ll be helping us build the best Community we can. It will enable us to build more products, services, and tools to help you get better at what you do. And in turn, we’re optimizing the value Members receive in our current product lineup.
Take a look at our Membership/Subscription page HERE for details.
One of the offerings we’re immediately serving up is our TLDChat Weekly Roundup. We’ll be sending out this weekly roundup every Monday to all subscribers until August 28th. Thereafter, we’ll be sending the Roundup to Members and Subscribers only.
