Wiki Who? What Web 2.0 Can Do for You

If you are in the Charlotte, NC area next Thursday I’ll be presenting a program for the ASTD Charlotte Chapter. I’m really excited about this opportunity because about 10 years ago when I decided I wanted to work full-time in learning & development I joined ASTD. I can’t tell you how much membership in my local chapter has helped me professionally and now it’s my turn to give back.

Wiki Who? What Web 2.0 Can Do for You
Thursday, April 16, 2009 from 6:15-8pm

How do you bring over 500 employees with a wide range of computer skills up to date on the best of Web 2.0—blogs, wikis, RSS feeds, and all the 2.0 tools? More importantly, how do you accomplish this effectively in only two months with a limited budget and only a handful of trainers?

Learn how the Public Library of Charlotte & Mecklenburg County created and implemented the award winning Learning 2.0/23 Things program that has been replicated by libraries, schools, universities, and businesses world-wide. This unique program focuses on collaboration and group interaction to teach Web 2.0 using Web 2.0. Best of all it’s free and creative commons licensed so you can replicate the program for your organization.

You’ll also learn how to use Web 2.0 tools and free resources available from your local public library to support your own learning and career development.

Announcing…PLCMC Learning

A few weeks ago I announced a new communication tool to our staff for training and learning. PLCMC Learning where we will be posting information about our in-house staff learning and training opportunities as well as links to webinars, tutorials, and upcoming training from around the library community that may be of interest to our staff.

While this site is geared to PLCMC staff, the site is public and I hope that other libraries will find information to use here. So bookmark it, tag it, subscribe to it.
