A few more thoughts about April Learntrends

Jay Cross's Informal Learning

Reflection is vital to learning. I am delighted to report that recordings of the April Learntrends sessions are online. However, in terms of sticking things in people’s heads, the informal combo of free-flowing discussion and audience interaction probably got more across than covering more topics in an efficient manner.

After all, April Learntrends was an experiment in socially-mediated learning in lieu of traditional presentation. c.1380, “act of presenting,&# from O.Fr. from L.
