The Social Learning Revolution

“A revolution is a fundamental change in power or organizational structures that takes place in a relatively short period of time.” (Wikipedia)

I’ve been preparing some extended notes for some presentations about The Social Learning Revolution – in particular how social media is impacting all our working and learning lives, and what this means for the Learning & Development department.   I’ve been looking at the following:

How we have traditionally understood “learning” in the workplace and how we really learn in the workplace

  • How we are using social media in the workplace and how the Training Department is responding

How social businesses are emerging and how we can really support social learning in the social business

What new services will be  needed in the social business to support social learning  and the new role of the workplace learning professional.

If you would like to read my extended notes together with thumbnail images of the slides I will be using, you can find them here: The Social Learning Revolution
