      Come Mingle with Social Learning

      In this month's learning event, Jean Marrapodi, Ph.D, CPLP. invites us to sample the available fare in the ever-present Social Learning Party. No, it's not a political group, it's a place where we'll learn to dabble with available tools to explore the realms of collaborative eLearning. During our time together, we'll gain a greater understanding of what Social Learning is, who's using it successfully and how it works through experiential activities.  You'll see how you can pivot from a top-down learning delivery mindset to an open, flexible - even opportunistic - mix in your learning ecosystem and leverage the power of existing learners in your organization and around the world. 

      You'll see how you can enhance and create:
      — Learning "appetizers" to engage people to participate
      — Ways to make your learning stick using different types of social tools
      — "Accidental" connections to your content and between your participants  - just like networking at a cocktail party

      You'll leave with new ideas on how to implement social tools within your personal practice as well as your organization.  
      Join us for what will be a fun and informative conversation.
