Facebook for Corporate Learning? YouTube for You?
With one week to go until the GLC, we are busily tending to last minute details, finalizing the program, printing (maybe in 2011 the whole program will be delivered on iPads?), packaging up the awards (unveiling March 1st evening at the Black Tie Gala), and getting ready to network and learn. Needless to say, excitement and urgency fill the air.
You are hereby invited to attend The Social Learning Roundtable on Wednesday, March 3rd, from 1-4pm, immediately following the Global Leadership Congress. Our Social Learning Executive Council has been participating in research for the past 6 months and we will be presenting results, diving deeper into success stories, and discussing strategies and tools for enabling social & informal learning.
Social Learning is a complex topic, but one that has transformative potential. Imagine a Facebook for Corporate Learning. Imagine a private, secure professional network with easy access to experts, knowledge communities, best practice repositories, a Private-YouTube-for-You. Imagine cohort communities, like a team of new leaders, working together collaboratively on action-learning projects across the globe, as part of a leadership development program.
While everyone else is talking about Social Media Technologies and Learning Applications, our Executive Council members have been busy DOING Social Learning. Private networks that are secure and mimic Facebook? Theyve done that. Private-YouTube channels with Sales Offices using Flipcams and uploading sales tips & tricks? Theyve done that. Virtual Cohort Programs that extend or replace instructor-led-training while providing superior learning & business outcomes? Theyve done that.
Please plan to stick around Wednesday afternoon and I promise you that the payback will be huge. The cost is Zero, but the return on your time is Priceless.
I hope to see you Wednesday afternoon on March 3rd.
