STRS103 Connected Learning: How to Harness the Power of Social, Data & Networks
12:15 PM - 1:00 PM Wednesday, October 23
Expo Hall: Strategic Solutions Stage
Connected learning is a game-changer. It’s about taking a holistic, joined-up approach to learning that is more aligned with learning as an organic, human activity. In this session, we explore how it’s possible to support learning as an organic activity (not forced, but rather enabled) within your organization. We will show that by taking a step back to consider how people naturally learn, you can connect effective learning with organizational goals. You will also see examples of how learning ecosystems (however simple or complex) enable connected learning. It’s as much data-driven and iterative as it is about providing an engaging learner journey.
Ever feel like your eLearning happens in a vacuum? Disconnected? Yes we do, too! And so do many of our customers—even those who are quite advanced in the learning experiences they provide, their L&D strategies, and tech. In this session, we’ll explore how learning became disconnected and, more importantly, how to create truly connected learning that harnesses the power of social learning, data and measurement, and joined-up systems.
In this session, you will learn:
- How eLearning became disconnected
- How to connect learners by enabling social learning
- How your learning ecosystem (complex or simple) can enable a data-driven approach
- How to create a data-driven ecosystem
