“Leveraging and Linking the Power of Social Learning: Transform your Organization with Collaborative Technologies“ by Tony Bingham, President & CEO of National ASTD
Today, the majority of learning within organizations is informal – often by asking other people how to do things. Social media provides an exciting way to facilitate, capture, and impact this informal learning with collaborative technologies. Tony will share current trends, Best Practices, case studies, and keys to effective implementation and management of social learning.
