5..4..3..2..1...It's (Re)Launch time for the Vetanswers PD Calendar

Posted in Management @ Sep 18th 2014 - By Judy Gillespie, Vetanswers

It's time!  Time to finally relaunch Vetanswers Professional Development Calendar

You may remember quite some time ago Vetanswers published a monthly Training Calendar that included all the webinars, courses, workshops and conferences I could possibly track down that would be on interest to our veterinary community. I received lots of feedback on how useful members in our community found it but for a variety of reasons it was given a break.

Since the begining of 2014 it's been on my 'Vetanswers Wish List' and I've been mulling over the best layout.  Rather than wait until it's perfect I've decided to publish it as a 'Beta' version.

What does a 'Beta' version mean?

Well - it means it's not perfect and there are still a number of features still to come - which sums up the current PD Calendar perfectly!

So what are the layout issues I've been myulling over?

  • it needs to be easy to read - so I;ve spread it over 2 pages
  • it neeeds to be able to fit ALL the training courses, etc. I can find (some days there's nothing, other days there may be 5 training events!)
  • it needs to be easy to print

My goal is to track down an online printable calendar - but until then I'm going with a similar layout to the previous version

You can help :)

1.   Tell me about any training courses, etc. that I may have missed,

2.   Feel free to give me any suggestions on layout and or what you would like to see

3.   Let me know of any online calendars that might work - I'm All ears! 

Here is September's calendar (October is nearly finished!)

So tell me what you think in the Comments section below

Crampton Consulting Group/provet have webinars as well that are really good. Sometimes Provet has support for clinics that wish to look at these

Thanks Kay. I think I've got all CCG/Provet sessions on the calendar for September - although if they've added in new one's in the last week or so they may not be there! Judy

No problems at all Kay - I'd rather you mention it just in case I have forgotten anything :)
