A Twitter conversation sparked by a 'hello' turned into a crowdsourced list of favourite Ted Talks for HR and L&D people yesterday. Sam Boucher, a participant on one of our L&D programmes, kicked off the discussion by checking in on the #LOVECPD hashtag on Twitter. It followed on from her learning more about Continuous Professional Development (CPD) in a video we made. When she revealed she was a fan of Ted Talks, a variety of people chipped in and shared their favourite clips.
It demonstrates how powerful a conversation can be in contributing to our development. Social media platforms put spontaneous and powerful conversations like this within easy reach making a good case for the benefits of social media when it comes to CPD. This is one of the many times we've seen the #LOVECPD hashtag used by people to discuss as well as share knowledge and resources to help each other learn.
Check out the conversation along with some of the Ted Talks that were shared in the curated slideshow below which we'll keep updated as more come in.
If you're on Twitter, do join in with these CPD conversations by including #LOVECPD in your Tweet and if you're not on Twitter, maybe here's a good reason to get started.
