Designing Social Learning: "Informal" Does Not Mean "Unplanned"

Presentation delivered at the GMU 7th Annual Innovations in e-Learning Symposium, Fairfax, VA, 8 June 2011

Where does Social Learning fit on the methodology matrix? That is, when is appropriate to select Social Learning as an instructional strategy? Instructional Designers have a toolbox of learning interactions for all kinds of modalities, situations, topics, audiences, and experience levels; if social learning is more than just a fad (which we think it is), it's time to make room on the ISD shelf for social learning instructional strategies. The session will include short-duration small-group breakouts, some brainstorming within a defined framework, and lots of audience participation. Participants will leave the session with a better understanding of social learning interactions, more resources to help develop social learning events, and greater awareness of their ability to design informal learning.

  • Trying to figure out this social media thing?
  • Those that are already collaborating, sharing and learning will resist attempts to force them to use other social media platforms or tools. Those who have yet to experience, understand, and feel comfortable with social media will not want to be forced into social networking when they are not ready for it.
  • You shouldn’t “implement” social learning. Help it grow organically, and as more people recognize the value, more people will start using it.
  • Hidden knowledge exists everywhere in social networks.Expertise is distributed across an organizationContent without context is uselessto usWe gain confidence in the knowledge from knowing differentangles
  • Social learning will not replace the other tools any more than e-learning killed the classroom.
