The world is full of rich content. We just need to put it to use. Digital curation could hold the key to how we deliver 'more for less.' We can curate content to help inspire our employees and our customers, or to help us design and deliver more formal learning experiences using a wide range of content that we didn't necessarily produce 'in-house.' In this session we will consider digital curation in four broad roles within L&D: inspiration, instruction, integration, and application. Inspiration is what we call curation that is done by other people on your behalf, outside of a formal learning environment. Instruction is the same thing, but done within a formal learning context. Integration is a more personal curation process; how individuals blend new learning experiences with existing thoughts. And finally, application is how individuals apply new insights in the real world; how we individually manage knowledge on a day-to-day basis. Using a blend of these techniques we will work together to understand potential strategies for using more digital curation within your L&D context.
