P18 Ten Design Principles for Social Learning

8:30 AM - 4:30 PM Tuesday, March 21



Social learning is something many organizations are interested in, but actually taking the idea and finding practical, effective ways to use it can be a challenge. How can you ensure that social learning approaches are successful? How should you apply and craft social learning solutions for your organization? How can you structure the activities and conversations around this topic to make it a success?

In this workshop, you’ll explore 10 practical and co-creative approaches to designing scaffolded social learning. You’ll start by building a shared understanding of how social learning works. You’ll then examine examples of social learning in real case studies and work out ways to implement these ideas in your own learning design. You’ll explore common barriers to implementation and ways to overcome them; finally, you’ll discuss measures for assessment and ROI. This is a practical session where you’ll address this challenge through reflection, studying application, and crafting solutions for your own organization.

In this session, you will learn:

  • How social learning works
  • About the elements that make up great social learning design
  • How to address your own social learning challenges and craft your own solutions
  • About barriers to implementation and how you can overcome them
  • About measures you can use for social learning assessment and ROI

Novice and intermediate designers and managers. Participants should have a keen interest in social learning and a desire to figure out how to do it.

Technology discussed in this session:
Conversation systems (such as Yammer, WhatsApp, and Jive), collaboration systems (like Tessello, LinkedIn, Jive, and Slack), and infrastructure systems (including full LMS solutions like Totara and Fuse).
