OTL201 Post 2: A look back at my first post

Looking back at my very first post (OTL101 Post 1), I first notice that although I did use a greeting (“Hello!”) it was not a cohesive response (e.g., “Hello Everyone!”).

I did give away a bit of personal information (interpersonal communication) but did not have any sort of closure (a bit of a rude way to end my post…abruptly!)

In this first post, we were not asked to make reference to others’ posts, however, in the times that I have responded to others’ posts, although I haven’t referred to them by name (e.g., “John – what a great suggestion you’ve made!” That would tie into open communication. Instead, I have been saying things like, “that’s a great suggestion!”), I have asked clarifying questions (open communication).

So…clearly some work to be done on my part for having more social presence, but I’d say the stepping stones are already there…

  1. Thanks for being so open and transparent with your reflection! I think we’ve all learned something after reading about making effective communication and presence in an online environment! 🙂
