Share & Learn

I'm enrolled in a program called "The Smart Worker’s Guide to using Social Media – in 30 days (Autumn programme)".  I'll be sharing tips from the program - and how I've been improving my use of Social Media.

This program is a part of the Share&Learn platform - a collaboration platform (set up by Jane Hart of the Centre for Learning & Performance Technologies [C4LPT]) where members can share links, resources, ideas, experiences, tips, etc about the use of learning and performance trends, technologies and tools, and learn from one another – both informally and formally!

You can join the group for free.
