– Staying on Our Toes – Ideas for Staff Development

One of my friends and colleagues reported that her agency is adding virtual staff meetings to bolster professional, technical and administrative skills while working remotely. I expect many of you are doing the same and seeking ways to engage staff time in professional development activities.

A resource I find helpful and interesting is the National Rehabilitation Information Center, and its list of new acquistions. This month, there were a number of links to articles about studies in blindness employment and technology. Many of the articles appeared in JVIB. There are direct links to others.
Find them here.

Harvard edX, which has mostly free online courses in a wide range of subject areas, offers Introduction to Inclusive Talent Acquisition. It’s meant for employers, but is of interest to employment staff as well.
