I’ve been a big fan of the original Learning 2.0 program  (and it’s hundreds of derivatives that have followed), since I first stumbled onto it a number of years ago.

I’m excited to have the opportunity to try this out as part of our local ASTD Chapter activities. This is a self-guided program (“Learn Camp“) to encourage everyone to experiment and learn about the new and emerging technologies that are reshaping the way we work today.

It’s free and open to anyone so please feel free to join us!

The objectives of this program are to:

  • encourage exploration of new technologies; and
  • provide you with new tools (that are freely available on the Internet) to better support you and your organization
