Thank you for joining Working Group about WordPress!  Engaging a group online is different than a traditional professional development or lecture series; here are a few hints to keep in mind as we move forward:

  • Go at your own pace...fast, slow, or anywhere in between.  The camaraderie is built around the social aspect of the group, not the contents.
  • Do not try to engage everything!  Online scaffolding is multi-modal and multilinear.  The easiest way to get overwhelmed is to try to breathe in every part of the group.  Pick and choose...the threads become apparent, aided by the asynchronous technology.
  • Share! Whether it's a triumph, a transgression or a tribulation, participating in the social opportunities of the course is what provides the fabric of what we do.
