    The 21st Century Toolbox: Restock It with Social Learning

    Do you find that building a learning strategy that incorporates the mindset of your distracted learners is a challenge? Are you still using methods from the 20th century as you create training? If so, it’s time to restock your toolbox!

    The key to today’s learning is to build learner connectivity into your overall strategy. This is not just simply coming prepared with games and activities but to adjust to our overall toolbox to today’s connected society. Your learning toolbox likely needs to change, expand and adapt to your users and then you need to further adjust your toolbox to consider the needs of the business and of the moment.

    In this session we will be taking your toolbox to the next level, incorporating different collaborative elements and learning new and richer ways to connect and engage your audience.  Note: To be fully immersed in the experience, please bring your laptop or mobile device.

    At the end of this session, you will be able to:

    • Articulate the difference between social learning and social tools for learning
    • Plan your social learning strategy according to the needs/requirements of your participants
    • Use collaboration and collaboration tools to support learning outcomes
    • Recognize which tools will be of best benefit to drive learning connectivity

        Value: How Are You Demonstrating It? 

        Do you find it challenging to describe the value of your time and skills in ways that are meaningful to your clients? Whether you an internal or an external consultant—and isn’t that all of us?—this session is about how you can effectively communicate the value of your work graphically and in a story that will set you apart from your competition. 

        You will find out what others have done and discuss the implications on your own work, get a detailed description of what constitutes value so you can better define what you offer in ways that are detectable and different, and get practice transforming what you do into outcomes clients see as meaningful.

        After attending this session, you will be able to:

        • Describe the value of your services in ways that are definable, detectable, and different
        • Transform your services into outcomes
