#GuildChat for 04/27/18: Disruption and L&D

Our next #GuildChat takes place Friday, April 27th at 11am PT / 2pm ET. Our topic for this week’s chat is on disruption. Note: this chat was originally scheduled to take place on April 20th but had to be delayed due to a Twitter outage.

First, a big thanks to Alan Natachu (@Truaxtrainer) for suggesting we explore “Disruptors” in GuildChat. We thought this was a great topic and ran with it for this week’s chat!



The word itself, disruption, today usually results in two reactions; either eye rolling or a cringe. It’s been used so often and in so many contexts that it has for many become a buzzword in business circles. However disruption happens but what is true disruption and in particular what is it for and in L&D?

In this week’s #GuildChat we explore disruption and disruptors in learning. From technology, to approaches to where disruption truly is and when it just isn’t. Join the community this Friday and bring along your own examples and insights.
