Impactful social and digital learning

Always focusing on our learners and their needs means we must seek to provide learning which is the right solution, for the right problem, for the right people, at the right time, for the right reasons, delivered in the right way. Consequently, we need to be ready to provide learning which embraces the best of face-to-face, social and digital learning solutions, as any one or indeed all of these may be the solution to the problem you are solving with learning. Such breadth can feel difficult, especially if we have come from a traditional in-person training background. Michelle Parry-Slater helps L&Ders feel confident in moving away from what we know and hold dear in learning towards interventions that modern learners and their organisations need.

In this session, let Michelle walk alongside you, as you embrace the best of social and digital learning in a way that feels natural and evolutionary. It is a journey she herself has taken, and now she is a champion and advocate of live online learning, socialised learning spaces and offering the best the digital learning world has to offer. Sharing ideas from her book, The Learning and Development Handbook, Michelle will lead a practical hands-on session on implementing social and digital learning looking specifically at digital body language, storytelling and effective use of slides. She will leave you ready to get going straight away with more effective, efficient, engaging and enjoyable live online learning.
