#GuildChat for 11/18/16: Learning Beyond the Event

Our next #GuildChat takes place Friday, November 18th at 11AM PT/2PM ET. This week we’re discussing Learning Beyond the Event.

One-n-done learning events are no longer acceptable. Be it an eLearning module, a training class, or even a conference, the need today is improve the impact of formal learning beyond just the event itself.


Thankfully, there is a growing amount of research and knowledge to help you determine how best to do this. Also, many approaches exist to make learning “sticky”, to battle the forgetting curve, and provide a steady drip of support at the point of work.

In this week’s #GuildChat we explore the techniques and tools being used to extend our own learning and that of others. Share your ideas and learn what others are doing in the community to help learning live beyond the event.
