What the Tweet?: @AcAdvChat & the #AcAdv Community Using Twitter for Professional Development

Today I will be joining the NACADA TechTalk series to talk about #AcAdv Chat & how great this community of advisors are on Twitter. 



Personal Learning Networks (PLNs) make use of social networks to allow users to personalize learning resources, create community around common professional interests, and even attain professional development goals. Over the past two years @AcAdvChat has used Twitter to create a community, bringing advising professionals together each week to share ideas, resources and dialogue around various advising topics. #AcAdv is more than a hashtag: it is a way to learn.
