Exploring the Learning and Performance Ecosystem – Resources Shared at #ATDTK

2015-01-16_2-40-04On January 16th, I had the pleasure of speaking at the ATD TechKnowledge Conference. I led a discussion titled Exploring the Learning and Performance Ecosystem. Here’s a description of the session:

Workers learn constantly. The formal training they receive is just one small part of the ecosystem of resources that are available to help workers learn and do their jobs more effectively. In this session you will examine the expanded scope of a learning ecosystem, examining the numerous components that contribute to learning and performance improvement. You will also explore how these individual components can be combined into a single cohesive strategy in which the whole is more than the sum of it’s parts.

In this session, you will learn to understand the concept of a learning ecosystem. You will explore the numerous components of a learning ecosystem and how they contribute to performance improvement . You will how to build connections between individual components to form a single organizational strategy.

This blog post is being set up primarily as a follow-up resource for those that attended the session, and it may also serve as a resource for anyone that wants to learn more about the technology trends that are shaping the future of learning.
