ATD 2016: Developing a learning community that works with Mike Collins

As we headed into Sunday afternoon here in the UK, in Denver, the gateway to the American West, talent and development professionals around the world were just waking up to the start of ATD 2016

The annual conference of Association for Talent Development (ATD) runs for four days and is attended by tens of thousands from around the world. DPG’s Community Mike Collins presented his session 'Developing a learning community that works'. The session was designed to provide those attending with a useful framework to help them harness the power of both on and offline communities for learning. Mike encouraged those attending to think about the purpose and product of their communities, the people involved, the platform and the ‘Pied Piper’ required to lead communities of practice to success.

Speaking after his session, Mike said 'Massive thanks to everyone who got involved in conversations. Conversations were the powerful thing in the session. It's where people come together and share ideas which is the basis of a community of practice.'

If you weren't at the ATD2016, or you were in one of the many other sessions that were taking place yesterday, don't worry. You can see a similar session on the recording below. You can also find the Prezi used by Mike in his session here.

  • Hi Mike,

    Great video, sharing is power and it is our role to create an environment and culture that fosters sharing.  I have a participant who is looking in to Learner Generated Content. the question is around do we "Police"  this LGC, her opinion was no, leave it to the community of users to correct.

    Interesting times for us all.

  • Great presentation Mike !
