Program Description

Is your organization beginning to rely on learning resources outside of classroom training events? In today's hyper-networked virtual workplace, it is only natural to begin "thinking outside the classroom," -- virtual or otherwise!

Social media provides rich resources for informal learning outside of the classroom as well as supplemental learning within the classroom. Both timely and collaborative, social media outlets provide you with the power to make sure learning occurs during your events and continues afterwards. It can be used to build community and continue the learning conversation started in the classroom, or it can be used as a stand-alone "just in time" set of resources for instant gratification education -- or anything in between!

This workshop will get you "thinking outside the classroom" by immersing you in some of the most popular social networks so you can fully experience their value.

Program Level Objectives

On completion of this workshop, you will be able to:
  • Identify common social media tools that can be used for formal and informal learning, including the advantages and disadvantages of each when used in conjunction with a virtual classroom.
  • Discuss the common barriers to social media for learning implementation and how to manage those barriers.
  • Understand how to incorporate social media tools and networks into a virtual learning experience to accomplish formal and informal learning.
  • Establish social networks as a critical part of your blend.
  • Integrate social media into virtual classroom design during live sessions and in-between live sessions.
  • Create a Community of Practice that utilizes social media networks.
