Davenport University's internal learning technology group deployed a social learning community to a significant portion of its employee base, spread amongst multiple campuses in Michigan. One department that embraced the learning community was the admissions department. Admissions reps—a university's equivalent of sales reps—swap tips and best practices using Bloomfire's built-in Q&A mechanism. Managers can also post helpful materials, giving admissions reps what they need for success straight into their pockets.

eLearning Guild members know what social learning is in theory, and those who are looking to implement it want to hear from people who have been there and done that. Participants in this case-study session will learn how Davenport University is implementing social learning. You’ll get real-life knowledge from Davenport trainers who have been there and done that. You’ll also be able to use what you learn to pitch your supervisors and get internal buy-in.

In this session, you will learn:

  • How a real-life organization is doing social learning
  • How you can apply social learning to employee training
  • How to get organizational buy-in for social learning
  • What the journey to social learning looks like

Audience: Basic familiarity with social learning will be sufficient.
