Defining Your Social Learning Strategy …

Defining Your Social Learning Strategy
One of the most efficient—and effective—ways to amplify and extend the value of your learning programs is to empower people to interact and share knowledge of their own, in addition to participating in formal learning programs. In fact, a social learning strategy is essential to bringing the power of learning to the forefront of your organization, and ultimately, maximizing the business impact of your overall enterprise learning initiatives.
 

Join Mike Merriman, Director of Strategic Services at Mzinga, for this session as he explains how you can quickly begin to put social learning to use—on its own, as well as blended with established formal programs—for not only your employees, but your customers, prospects and partners as well. This interactive sessions will include use cases that you can adopt for your own purposes, best practices, and real-world examples.
