Get up to speed with social media, social learning, social business

This post first appeared on the Learning in the Social Workplace blog.
At the Social Learning Centre I am going to be hosting a number of short online “programmes” about social media, social learning and social business. These “programmes” will use a very informal, social, collaborative approach: there will be no formal classes and no monitoring/management of your learning in a LMS. Rather the programmes will be hosted in dedicated group spaces on the Social Learning Centre (which is powered by a social and collaboration platform).
Each day there will be an “activity” that consists of an introduction to the topic with links to additional reading (if desired), an individual or group activity, and a group discussion question to encourage the exchange of thoughts, ideas, experiences and resources of participants.
Here are three upcoming programmes. Follow the links to find out more about them, their agenda as well as how to join up – currently there is a special launch price available.
