Social Media for Government Learning

Tuesday, August 27, 2013 12:00pm - 1:00pm EDT  
Host: Association for Talent Development
By: Jane Bozarth, Author, ASTD/ATD Certificate Programs

New social media technologies and strategies provide quick, easy solutions to many of the challenges faced by workplace learning and development practitioners in the government. Social media vehicles such as Twitter and Facebook, for example, can help L&D build learning communities, facilitate quick assignments, offer updates or follow-up tips, and otherwise extend the reach of the formal training event. Government training practitioners face additional challenges in that they must separate myth from fact as pertains to the ability of government to adopt and adequately respond to social media. Social Media for Government Learning authored by Jane Bozarth is an Infoline that bridges the gap between theory and real-world application of social learning. This Infoline is an ideal tool for anyone who desires to use social tools to support workplace learning.

This webcast will address how to:

  • Separate myth from fact in approaching the use of social media tools for learning.
  • Replicate parts of existing L&D practice using social tools.
  • Extend current practice through the use of social tools.
