Benefit 1 - it allows us to explore theories and apply them to real life experiences, for example you could look at a tool, technique or technology to deliver a topic on, in theory it works but in reflection did it have the impact you were expecting and would that tool be best to use in the same situation again or maybe replaced with a different tool, technique and technology of delivery
Benefit 2 - It is a form of sharing progression and idea's within a given environment through collaboration and understanding of different systems, it allows time to share ideas in a busy lifestyle and learn from other peoples experience of the delivery and the resources used.
Benefit 3 - It allows the professional to become more of an expert within the digital literacy field. Not only are you looking at your delivery concept but you are always analysing the good and bad parts to the field making sure that you embrace the neccessary changes such as using a new tool for delivery. It helps us as practitioners to develop from a beginner to an expert in our field to ensure we take on all the daunting aspects and critically apply them to change our delivery for the better.
