RE: "Curation & Learning LAB" in July 2017!

Curation is a key, strategic, and evolving opportunity and challenge for the Learning & Development field.

As content, context and collaboration for Learning expands, your employees are facing a wider Learning Panorama.  Curation is the process of finding, sorting, organizing, rating, ranking, recommending, validating, clearing, tracking and personalizing learning resources.

You and your colleagues are invited to participate in our just added, unique, vendor-neutral Curation & Learning LAB experience with Elliott Masie in our Learning Center in Saratoga Springs - deeply exploring, experimenting, assessing and deploying a range of curation strategies:

Our first Curation & Learning LAB sold-out in early March 2017.  We had participants from around the world and a wide range of industries.  It was one of our most exciting LAB's ever conducted at The MASIE Center and included video interviews with 7 learning experts with perspectives about Curation, Learning Design, Metadata, Learning Innovation and more.  Register early for our July edition of Curation & Learning LAB, as we expect it to fill rapidly!
