“A salon is a gathering of people under the roof of an inspiring host, held partly to amuse one another and partly to refine taste and increase their knowledge of the participants through conversation. These gatherings often consciously followed Horace’s definition of the aims of poetry, “either to please or to educate” (“aut delectare aut prodesse est”). Salons, commonly associated with French literary and philosophical movements of the 17th and 18th centuries, were carried on until quite recently, in urban settings, among like-minded people.”
The Salon is a discussion group hosted by Jane Hart and Harold Jarche. This is a place to have deeper conversations and share experiences with colleagues interested in social learning in the workplace. Topics include social learning, communities practice, informal learning, knowledge management, and many other
The Salon is reserved for Gold & Silver members of the SLC, as well as invited guests.
