VIDEO: Planning and evaluating social learning

Learning unfortunately remains a side-show in many projects – a bit of training, knowledge-sharing, a piece of research, an evaluation report. But today ‘embedding social learning’ has to be a strategic part of any innovative project. In this video, by pioneers in the field, Etienne and Bev Wenger-Trayner explain what social learning is all about.

People – across sectors – struggle to integrate learning in all phases of their project, from planning to implementation to evaluation. Unfortunately, learning remains a side-show in many projects – a bit of training, knowledge-sharing, a piece of research, an evaluation report. But today ‘embedding social learning’ has to be a strategic part of any innovative project.

Etienne and Bev Wenger-Trayner are two of the pioneers in the development of communities of practice and social learning. Their video, which they have kindly allowed us to publish on GpmFirst, is a powerful advocate for the kind of learning we hope you will realize from using GpmFirst.
