TLDC UK Meetup is On Its Way – June 21st

After a spectacular TLDC18 in Phoenix, AZ at the end of January, a few of us here put our heads together at The Training, Learning and Development Community. We are the most active group of L&D professionals around the world and we want to continue to celebrate this fact.

Even with daily TLDCasts — webcast conversations with influential L&D professionals — and actively moderated Slack TLDChat Workspaces, our aim is to maximise your professional development. We believe long lasting value comes from “hallway conversations” that occur when L&D networks come together; we work to recreate these as much as possible. Building networks and meeting people in your field, swapping ideas or sharing concerns, and getting together will help to enhance your connection.

We have an active and thriving community of L&D professionals in the UK, but due to distance it can be hard to have the face to face interactions that adds so much value.

This is why we are excited to announce the first ever TLDC UK Meetup on Thursday, June 21st at Mulberry Bush Pub in London from 6:30 pm to 10:00 pm (BST).

We don’t want to ruin the fun before it has begun, so more information will be shared closer to the event. But it’s not too early to RSVP and let us know you’ll be there.

With your hosts Jo Cook (@lightbulbjo), Cara North (@caranorth11) and Bethany Taylor (@eCom_Bethany), you won’t be short of support and lively discussion. They’ll be your fearless leaders and sources of TLDC UK connection, ask them your questions.

As a TLDC first-timer or regular contributor, you will find TLDC stands for Community. We hope that we will see you there!

 

Special Guest Ollie Gardener of NoddlePod Talks Community

Notes for December 13, 2017

We are joined in the video chat by Ollie Gardener of NoddlePod. She discussed how NoodlePod was a was created as a solution to the poor choice in tools that the learning community had at the time. This lead to a great conversation on community in general and it was then linked back into the L&D field with some key discussions around bots and AI.

  1. Ollie’s history
  2. Wiki and information streams
  3. Learning prompts
  4. Bots
  5. AI
