108 Learner as Creator: A New Path to ROI
10:45 AM - 11:45 AM Wednesday, October 24
According to Time magazine, leaders at IBM and other large technology firms project that the future of the digital revolution will be about both social networks and knowledge: “The next phase is not about the network alone, but also about knowledge.” If you believe that this projection is accurate, what role will L&D play? Are there approaches or solutions you can use now to support this ongoing transformation?
There is no doubt that intellectual property—internal knowledge—is an asset that has strategic value. This session will explore how enabling the learner to be a creator of and key contributor to training material allows you to first surface and then scale the best of your organization’s insights. In this way, “collective intelligence” becomes tangible and actionable, helping you to make better decisions and operate more effectively. In this way, the connection between L&D and the success of the business is undeniable.
In this session, you will learn:
- How to evaluate the value of user-generated content as learning material
- About the functionality of OOTB solutions that enable learning professionals and front-line team members to collaborate
- About ways that different organizations are incorporating informal learning into their development opportunities
- About opportunities to use existing tool sets and resources to change the nature of your learning material
