Co-manager’s Report for Q3 2017

By Viqui Dill

Hello IDL friends! We had another great quarter and have many more great things planned. Our webinar series is going strong and we have our own channel on YouTube. Looking ahead, we are going to rock the 2018 Summit and want to help you get involved. Let me demonstrate.

Webinar Series

Phil Havlik kicked off the new season of webinars with “Digital Citizenship in an Online World”. Havlik helped us understand our own roles in the online world and gave us tips on how to be stronger and more informed members of the digital community. Find a link to the recording for this and other webinars on our website: http://www.stcidlsig.org/membership/webinars/free-recordings-of-idl-sig-webinars-for-members/

Chuck Campbell was our speaker in September with “Create Presentation Handouts that People Will Actually Use”. Campbell reminded us about the value of handouts, showed examples, and gave us tips for this common training resource.
