Vacation (from blogging) is Over

So, it’s been quite a while since my last post here on new eelearning. One of these days I’ll figure out how to keep blogging when live gets stressful.

The last several months of unemployment (read – running out of money and facing oblivion) were times where there was no spare time. Then gratefully, a job finally landed my way. Having not worked in a in-office, 9-5 job in approximately 15 years, the transition to full-time work with a 75 minute commute on either end of the day was equally as stressful as unemployment. Four months on the job, I’m finally getting my feet underneath me. When did they make weekends so short?!?!

So after yet another hiatus, I’m back again – for now.

The job I started in March is Senior Manager for Learning and Product Solutions with the Association for Supply Chain Management (ASCM). As it turns out, it is pretty much a dream job. My main project is to conceptualize and launch ASCM’s online learning presence. Unbelievably, I don’t have to contend with a legacy LMS or other systems. The organization has invested in new, state-of-the-art technologies. I’m being encouraged to apply modern Workplace Learning principles. I feel like this job is the natural culmination of 12-15 years of work and learning.

So I’m back in my blog seat again and will resume sharing what I see and learn about my own learning, how others can be helped to learn what they need to perform, and organizations preparing for the transformation of the world economy that is underway. In other words, “workplace learning from my perspective.”
