Online social workshop at the Social Learning Centre starts Monday 27 May.
Organising a formal online social learning experience for the workplace is much more than just requiring people to use some social media tools in an online course, rather it means applying 5 fundamental pedagogical principles:
1 – scaffolding the social learning experience
2 – offering as much autonomy as possible
3 – focusing on enabling the social interaction
4 – supporting the experience with content as appropriate
5 – and driving it with a performance outcome in mind
You can read more about the importance of these principles for underpinning a successful formal online social learning experience in my blog post, 5 principles for a successful formal online social learning experience.
This workshop will help you plan a formal online social learning experience as well as scaffold its framework. It will also provide the opportunity for you to run a short session yourself with the other participants. Although this workshop is primarily aimed at those active in workplace learning, it will also be suitable for those in education.
