Social Media For Trainers: A Series Of 3 Sessions Workshop
Instructor: Jane Bozarth, Author, Social Media for Trainers
Social media is no longer seen as a fad – it's a revolution and an essential part of your 21st Century Training Toolkit. Whether you work in a traditional or virtual classroom, social media provides a low-cost way to broaden your reach and increase the impact of your training. Based on the bestselling book Social Media for Trainers, this interactive certificate invites you on a guided tour of tools that support broadcasting, collaborating, sharing and conversing, and explores concrete, specific ways to incorporate them into your own training practice.
In this program, you'll examine the unique features of a number of popular tools, discuss how to leverage the strengths of each, explore which best fit your training needs and learn how to set up your own accounts. Appropriate for classroom and virtual classroom facilitators, and instructional designers, the course also covers the basics of social learning, informal learning, and communities. While we discuss concepts such as learning communities and overcoming barriers, the focus of this program is on specific training activities that can be facilitated using social media tools.
Important Note: You will need to be able to access a variety of social media tools including Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, Pinterest, Snapchat, etc. during and in between program sessions. If you cannot access these types of sites during work hours, you will find it difficult to fully participate in the course.
Prerequisites: The certificate is suited to those who wish to start utilizing social media for training. It is also suited for current users of social media who wish to better leverage the strengths of their current social media tools or expand into new social media areas for training purposes.
Who Should Attend: This certificate is appropriate for classroom and virtual classroom facilitators, and instructional designers.
