Joint Meeting with ASTD-Philly: How to Cultivate Shared Practice Communities

  • 08 Jun 2011
  • 5:45 PM - 8:00 PM
  • DoubleTree Plymouth Meeting, 640 West Germantown Pike, Plymouth Meeting, Pennsylvania 19462


Registration is closed


In many organizations, informal knowledge-sharing happens haphazardly and only in silos – it's typically a rich but untapped resource. Think of how much we could extend and reinforce learning if we got strategic about building shared-practice communities where learners can help and mentor one another.


In this session we’ll examine the care and feeding of a shared-practice community, including lessons learned from the evolution of the Articulate community of over 200,000 members. You’ll learn best practices for establishing and improving a community of practice for your own organization.


In this session, you will learn:

·      Ways to leverage the informal sharing that's already happening in your organization

·      Four barriers to a healthy community of practice

·      The best ways to nurture community leaders

·      Tools and resources that help learners share and collaborate

·      How to keep the community scalable so that it can grow without burning you out



5:45pm - 6:45pm  Networking & Dinner

6:45pm - 8:00pm  Program
