Individuals and organizations interested in connecting people to the know-how, creativity and learning they require to drive meaningful business results are invited to visit the OutStart sponsored Always Learning Webinar Series led by industry analyst Bryan Chapman. Each monthly, 30-minute interactive session brings practitioners from leading companies together to share tips, techniques and lessons learned. Webinar panelists will highlight how they approached specific challenges and leveraged formal learning, social collaboration and/or mobile technologies to meet their needs. The newly launched series will run for the remainder of 2010 and into the early part of 2011. For more information on the Always Learning paradigm read the OutStart blog post What is Always Learning?
The series kicked off on March 16 with the live discussion on “The Convergence of Formal, Social and Mobile Learning.” Bryan Chapman led the discussion with executives from Verizon Wireless and Xerox answering questions from Chapman and webinar viewers.

“The goal of this series is to help people make sense of the current learning and knowledge-sharing landscape directly from their peers on varying approaches and best practices for managing an environment that facilitates learning and the exchange of information. Viewers can expect to hear insightful and revealing conversations that provide guidance and reference points for their own initiatives.”
Jeff Whitney, Vice President of Marketing, OutStart
“For organizations to continuously adapt to rapidly changing products, services, customer needs and the like, their people must constantly learn through a variety of methods including formal learning, social collaboration, and via mobile connections when computers or networks aren’t readily available. The Always Learning Webinar series is a venue for leading practitioners to converse on the relevant topics in a fast-paced 30 minute, PowerPoint-light format.”
