Embedding Social Media for Collaborative Learning

CIPD Learning and Development Show

Embedding Social Media for Collaborative Learning

Thursday 1st May at the L&D Show

Social Media.  it's all out there and it's presence isn't going to go away. In fact many say, it's going to become an even bigger part of how we communicate, interact and do business in the future. 

I've often wondered what this means for learning and how social and collaborative learning will be enabled more in the future in the presence of tools allowing us to do more of this. My views on these channels of learning are no different to any of the other technologies. They are okay as long as they work alongside what we already do as part of the L&D mix.

I've often wondered how many other organisations have embraced social learning. I've wondered what lessons can be learned from those that have had a go. I've wondered how you really make social learning part of the equation and encourage social learning to occur.

This Thursday I'll be joining Helena Moore, Director of OD and Communications for the Bradford Group and Michelle Parry-Slater, Academy Manager for The SantaFe Group who will be sharing with the audience at this year's L&D Show their views on the subject.

You can follow my tweets @dpgplc from this event on both Wednesday and Thursday throughout the day.  Tweet you there.

In the meantime, I'd love to hear what questions and comments you have about embedding social media for collaborative learning.
