Online Discussions: O.D.0.5: I have created three ungraded forums in Blackboard where you may volunteer to share your learning from social media. I highly recommend that you have the experience of participating in the Tuesday night #txlchat Twitter group (8:00 to 8:30 p.m. CT).  The second forum is for the Building a Culture of Collaboration blog where I co-blog with three other library science faculty.  In April, will create a forum for the Texas Library Association Conference to be held in Houston. I will post the hashtag in Blackboard. (Guess: #txla16). (accessed February 9, 2016).


Although we do not have sufficient time to delve deeply into these three online professional development opportunities, this is my way to make you aware of them and give you the encouragement to participate.
