Welcome to the ATD Greater Boston Chapter

Thursday, October 15th - “Come Mingle with Social Learning”

In this month’s learning event, Jean Marrapodi, Ph.D, CPLP. invites us to sample the available fare in the ever-present Social Learning Party. No, it’s not a political group, it’s a place where we’ll learn to dabble with available tools to explore the realms of collaborative elearning. During our time together, we’ll gain a greater understanding of what Social Learning is, who’s using it successfully and how it works through experiential activities. You’ll see how you can pivot from a top-down learning delivery mindset to an open, flexible — even opportunistic — mix in your learning ecosystem and leverage the power of existing learners in your organization and around the world. 
You’ll see how you can enhance and create: 
  • Learning “appetizers” to engage people to participate
  • Ways to make your learning stick using different types of social tools
  • “Accidental” connections to your content and between your participants  - just like networking at a cocktail party
You’ll leave with new ideas on how to implement social tools either within your personal practice as well as your organization. Join us for what will be a fun and informative conversation.

Get Your Game On!

ATD Greater Boston – Recognized with 2015 Membership Star

ATD Greater Boston was recognized for sharing the ideas and success it has had with driving membership engagement and Chapter leadership succession through volunteerism. The goal of the Volunteer Program was to recruit and organize volunteers to accomplish key processes and activities to energize the chapter and increase member engagement. Through social media, meetings, our website and newsletters we put out a call for volunteers to form committees and accomplish key initiatives for the chapter. Our Learning and Development colleagues stepped forward in such force that we soon created a “Volunteer Coordinator” position dedicated to oversight of the Volunteer Program.
