Designing and Facilitating Social Learning
Associations are, by definition, social organizations. They exist to connect people with common aims and interests. And the value of that connection lies in the knowledge that can be gained through sharing experiences and resources with others in the association’s network. This session looks at how associations can design and facilitate social learning to make it an intentional and successful part of the value they offer. We’ll discuss four dimensions of social learning—immediacy, structure, scale, and transparency—and use real-world examples from two associations.
Facilitated by Celisa Steele, co-author of the report Social Learning Trends in the Association Space, the session will feature insights from Juliana Wood at the Healthcare Businesswomen’s Association and Abe Flores at Americans for the Arts, both of whom have been hands-on in experimenting with social learning as part of their association’s learning mix.
