Networked Learning in BC…

November 29, 2012

For as long as I can remember, I’ve wanted the L&D community in BC to be a dynamic sharing group of progressive professionals. Associations, special interest groups and like-minded people have taken many a run at it over the years.  Groups still exist, but are more general training interest groups. I’m trying again for another round (either an eternal optimist or a masochist!) to find a tribe who is keen on less traditional methods of learning, or at least sees learning as a continuum that includes traditional, but extends beyond as well.

Through the wonders of social media, I met James Tyer through the Twitter, and after a face-to-face coffee we decided we’d take a shot at developing an in person and online community. This community isn’t for traditional training types though, it’s for those who see the value in networked/social/informal learning as a real path for learning.  If you are someone who is interested in organizational learning, social learning, social business or informal learning, consider joining us for a meetup.

We’re going to be meeting on December 4th at 6 pm at 900 West in the Fairmont Hotel Vancouver (or for those of us long time Vancouverites, the lobby lounge at the Hotel Vancouver). There’s no agenda, just some like-minded individuals who are keen to talk learning, share perspective and brainstorm about what a group might look like and how we could move it forward.

Feel free to use our hashtag: #networkedlearningbc and let @sparkandco or @jimbotyer know if you’d like to come along physically (as in attend the meetup) or metaphysically (as in you are of like mind, but can’t make the event)!
