Dear CEdMA member,

The winter CEdMA Europe half-day Workshop will take place on Thu 20 January 1300-1700 UK time at IBM Hursley.

Social Media in the Learning Organisation
Barry Sampson, Co-Founder and Director of Onlignment
In the last few years there has been much talk about social media and social networking in the workplace, and how that might be applied to training and learning. If you're ready to stop talking and start doing, how do you make it a reality? What are the tools and technologies and the techniques for using them? How much can (and should) L&D be involved in this anyway, and how does it change the way you do your job? You are invited to take part in this facilitated discussion.

Chris Rauch,
