San Diego, CA, United States, 2008/05/16 - Presentation on Wednesday, May 28, 2008, 10am PDT / 1pm EDT by Josh Bersin of Bersin & Associates, E-Learning Expert Tom Kelly, and Altus Learning Systems.
Corporate training leaders interested in the new world of Learning 2.0 are invited to participate in the “Next Generation Corporate Learning” videocast and webinar on Wednesday, May 28 at 10:00 am PDT / 1:00 pm EDT.
Josh Bersin, a recognized expert on enterprise learning and talent management and author of the “Blended Learning Book”; Tom Kelly, former Cisco and Netapp Chief Learning Officer and co-author of “The Business Case for E-Learning”; and moderator Sebastian Grady of Altus Learning Systems will present a comprehensive discussion on how organizations are reacting to and changing, or being changed by the evolution of corporate training including: video, search, social networking, communities, blogs and other forms of user-generated content.
Attendees will learn how to leverage new learning strategies to accomplish more with reduced budgets, meet the expectations of the next generation of workers, and leverage the collective intelligence of their organizations. Learning professionals and executives will gain new insights into what can be accomplished in the future to increase the impact of learning programs and respond effectively to today’s many challenges.
The current down economy is creating additional pressure on the training community to do more with fewer resources and make learning more efficient. The good news is that effectively incorporating new Web 2.0 tools and collaborative knowledge sharing strategies, such as peer-to-peer learning, can enable organizations to do more with less. And utilizing these new approaches to meet the expectations of millennial workers can also become a competitive weapon in the upcoming talent war. These and other hot topics will be addressed during the webinar.
“Companies need the people with critical knowledge to be able to share it easily and freely with those who need it, since the roles of content contributor and consumer of learning content can change from hour to hour. Formal learning will always play an important role, but the shift happening today is from traditional training to a more collaborative approach to sharing knowledge,” said Sebastian Grady, COO of Altus Learning Systems.
