It’s now 3 years since I published the Social Learning Handbook – and a lot has changed, so I am now working on a new version.
Social Learning Handbook 2014:
The Next Generation of Workplace Learning Practices in the Age of Knowledge Sharing and Collaboration
Social learning has become a hot topic in the learning industry, but in reality it is something that we have always done – it’s just that with social tools this has become an even more powerful way to learn. However when we consider what social learning means inside an organisation, it’s not just about adding social media to formal learning programmes and courses and making people interact with one another. It’s more about helping people learn from one another as they work together – underpinned and enhanced by the new tools. Hence learning in the social workplace is no longer just about being trained to do a task, but about learning with and from one another as we do our jobs. In this new world of work and learning, the role of the L&D department is therefore very different, so in this book I will be taking a look at some of the key ways that L&D can start to support social workplace learning.
