How to organise a formal online social learning experience for the workplace – aka a corporate-mini-c-MOOC!

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.

AGENDA: 

Part 1 : 27 MAY – 7 JUNE
