Social Media for Government Learning
Social media, at least the discussion of it, has exploded across the government sector over the last few years. Everyone seems to be talking about it, but how do we meet the challenge of incorporating social media into the learning function for the public sector? Social Learning for the Government Workforce serves as a practical guide between theory and the real world application of social media learning. This publication will be an ideal tool for anyone involved in the L&D function who desires to use social tools to support workplace learning.
