Enterprise Thursday

It’s Enterprise Thursday this week, this time with a very open invitation – simply to share some of the creative work you’ve been doing on our online pinboard, which you can access either directly below, or through this link. To find out how to post on the board, there’s a handy page to help you here. Please feel free to comment on and ‘like’ other posts, too. I’ll be lurking around the board on Thursday, but you can post any time you like!

Enterprise Online Course

Our first Enterprise Online Course, Reflecting on a personal digital professional profile,  will run until Friday. All Graduate Associate Members are welcome to join (you’ll need your college log-in to self-enrol through Studentnet).

The course is optional, and runs for two weeks, during which time you can complete activities in your own time. I’ll be popping in and out to facilitate and comment on Tuesdays and Fridays (this week I will visit on Thursday due to the Bank Holiday). More details.
