Are you interested in using social / collaborative learning strategies to create impactful, engaging, high-quality learning experiences? Join me in Sydney on 13 March 2017 to hone your skills designing and implementing social learning solutions.
In March I’m facilitating a program that is focussed on using social / collaborative approaches as part of a learning solution to meet a business need. As a result of participating in this program you’ll be able to do the following:
- Determine how social learning can help address your specific business problem / opportunity
- Design or redesign a learning solution to effectively incorporate social learning
- Select social learning activities and enabling tools to use in your solution
- Develop a strategy to implement your social learning solution
How This Program Works
This is a program about social / collaborative learning. As such it is a social learning experience. There are three elements to this program:
Pre-workshop – You can familiarise yourself with the program by viewing a small set of online resources. It is essential to select an appropriate workplace project to work on during the workshop – guidance is provided in a pre-workshop introduction to assist with this selection. Participants are also invited to join a private online discussion forum in LinkedIn.
Workshop – This is a highly participative and collaborative event, focused around a number of individual and group activities. Participants will be able to work on the design of a social learning solution for your workplace project. You should bring your smartphone, tablet or laptop as we will be making good use of them to access web resources and use online tools. We will use a shared Google document for collaborative note-taking, and you are invited to use the LinkedIn group as a backchannel.
Post-workshop – The LinkedIn group will remain active for at least four weeks after the workshop. You are encouraged to continue to work on your social learning solution, and you may seek feedback on your solution via the group. You also have the opportunity to participate in the collaborative development of a social learning resource. Additional resources will be posted and you can continue the conversation with the group online.
