Social Learning: Enhance Learner Engagement and Knowledge Transfer
Presented by: Stacy Jemmott-Hunt, IT Consultant/Trainer
“Social Learning” has been a buzzword around the Learning and Development industry for several years. It has been discussed as a solution to increase learner engagement and knowledge transfer by utilizing different Social Media tools. It is the direct correlation to Social Media that has kept some trainers from investing time in learning about this topic. Social Media is often described as a Sales and Marketing tool. It was believed there were no practical uses in the training environment.
This session will explain the value of Social Learning to both trainer and learner. It will provide examples of practical applications with little time or money invested. Participants will learn:
The definition of Social Learning and its correlation to Social Media
Overcoming the obstacles of Social Learning
Practical applications of Social Learning
AUGUST CHAPTER LEARNING EVENT
Leadership Excellence: Don’t Let your Strengths Become Weaknesses
Presented by:Margaret Seidler
The closest thing to a magic bullet that advances leadership is first the ability of leaders to know themselves and their own motivational values. Next, they see how each value is part of an interdependent pair; for example, leaders need to focus on Task and Relationship over time when leading others regardless of natural preferences. Polarity Thinking principles and tools are explained and experienced to expand wisdom through increased self-awareness. When leaders recognize their own unique pairs of competing, yet connected values, they reduce the “blind spots” that get in the way.
Polarity Thinking makes accessible what may have been hidden in the past. It is a visible and tangible way to be more intentional in your actions to gain higher, more sustainable performance for yourself and others.
