Learn In Public
Create Your Own Career
There are no longer any barriers keeping you from creating your own career, other than your own fears.
For many professions, a degree no longer matters. What matters is demonstrating your skill and your dedication to the craft you’ve chosen to pursue.
When you learn in public, you do that. You share your skill development and your works in progress online, even before you think you’re ready.
To overcome the fears that come along with that act of vulnerability, this course will help you develop a strategy for sharing your skill development online as you move toward the work and the life that excites you.
The Lay Of The Land
The current state of the internet and the opportunities that abound.
You’ll develop a personalized learning plan tailored to your style and goals.
You’ll decide where and how to share your learning online and connect with others.
Execute & Iterate
Put your learn-in-public plan into action and improve it as you gain experience.
Each of the 26 lessons within this course are presented in a text + illustration format, which helps to support the key ideas, as shown in the lesson excerpt below:
My name is Doug Neill, and here’s a bit of my background:
- In 2011 I received a Master of Arts in Teaching from Pacific University, with secondary certifications in Math, Science, and ESL.
- That same year I got pulled into the world of visual thinking and documented my skill development over at The Graphic Recorder. That’s where I did my own learning in public, as you’ll hear more about in the course.
- I launched Verbal To Visual in 2013 to help others develop their sketchnoting skills, and have built two courses along those lines: An Introduction To Visual Note-Taking and How To Make Sketchnote Videos. I’m currently in the process of building a resource for educators called Sketchnoting In The Classroom.
There’s something that excites me about a world in which we’re more open about our learning, more willing to share what we’re not good at, what we don’t understand, and what we’re trying to improve.
It goes in direct contrast to the idea that you’re born either creative or not, smart or not, talented or not.
We are all creative, smart, and talented, but too often those traits are educated out of us.
To learn in public is to take back control of your education, to embrace and develop those traits, and to set the foundation for a life full of meaningful work.
Lay The Foundation For Your Future Career
Whether your goal is to land your dream job or create one that doesn’t even exist yet, the act of documenting your journey will lay a solid foundation for your future. Let’s get started.
