"4 on the 4th at 4" Speaker Series - Workplace Social Learning and Instructional Design

Program Description:

Following up on the smash hit session with ATD national president Tony Bingham on Social Learning, the Learning Technologies SIG of ATD Philadelphia presents our second session on the topic via our monthly speaker series in partnership with Harrisburg University.


As social learning becomes a consistent disruptor in the learning and collaboration strategies of organizations, instructional designers need to adapt.  In what ways is the ID process impacted by social learning?  Is the role of the instructional designer changing with the use of social learning as a tool for performance improvement?  How can instructional strategies be enhanced and made more efficient with social learning?  Join a panel of industry experts in this webinar panel as they answer your questions and discuss the current and future impact of social learning on the instructional designer.

When filling out the online registration for this event, please make sure you take the opportunity to ask questions you have for the panelists. You will find the appropriate field on the submission page.
