This Week's Live and Interactive Events in Elluminate

Below are this week's public, free, and interactive webinars through LearnCentral.org, the social learning network for education that I work on for Elluminate.

The time of the events below will show up automatically in your own time zone when you are registered in LearnCentral and when you have chosen your time zone in your profile. Event recordings are posted and available after the events if you aren't able to attend them live. A number of folks have emailed me looking for an easy calendar import / RSS feed for these events, and while the developers at LearnCentral are working on a good long-term solution, you'll find my Google Calendar "hack" at LearnCentral.tv. Hope it helps!

Be on the lookout for Australia-time-friendly events as part of the new Australia Series, and Spanish-language Webinars from the Aula 2.0 Series! I hope you will also consider hosting your own public webinars using the LearnCentral public room--instructions are available by joining the "Host Your Own Webinar" group on the main announcement tab (http://www.learncentral.org/group/3432/host-your-own-webinars).

Thanks for your attention, and see you online!

    AUSTRALIA SERIES
    Ecapability: what is it? how do you get it?” “Join Coach Carole for a session with Clint Smith. If you only have hammer, every problem looks like a nail. As educators, we often think that that the solution to getting more e-learning happening must be to train more teachers to do more. But is that all there is to it? Clint conducted a national survey and analysis of over 60 Australian training providers and businesses to identify the success factors for "embedding" e-learning – ie making it work, and then making it stick. There were some real surprises. Clint will describe what it really takes for organisations to be e-capable, and suggest some tactics for fast-tracking e-learning capability at your place.

    ELLUMINATE LIVE SERIES
    Formalizing Informal Learning: Case Studies,” with presenter Lance Dublin. The buzz about Learning 2.0 and Social Learning has turned into a clamor. Organizations know they need to jump onto this bandwagon, but they worry about how. Formal learning is well established and is well understood. Informal learning seems obvious but too ill-defined. Now is the time to move into the third dimension of learning, where formal and informal learning intersects with intention. Some experts have called this 'formalizing informal learning' while others term it 'non-formal' learning. Regardless of what it's called, this third dimension extends, enables and enhances learning in ways never possible before. In this webinar we will go into case studies from these four organizations: Genentech, Google, Toshiba America and Qualcomm. And, we will analyze these case studies to learn how they effectively formalized informal learning to produce tangible and measurable results in their organization.
