Monthly Learning Meeting
Connections to Informal Learning
Attend the January ATD – San Antonio Chapter Learning Meeting and find out how you can encourage informal learning in your organization. Only 10 to 20 percent of learning occurs in formal training which means 80 to 90 percent occurs informally. Yet, how much time do we as Talent Development professionals spend on informal learning?
At this session, you will experience the power of informal learning. You will discover more about your peers in a connecting exercise, and participate in a World Café table discussion on the most popular talent development topics. Share your expertise and ask questions to gain more knowledge. You will also learn more about the ATD San Antonio Chapter and how to get involved.
Don’t miss this unique ATD San Antonio Chapter event to kick off the New Year! A drawing will be held for a Samsung tablet so bring your business cards. Registration includes one complimentary drink ticket and a fantastic Mexican dinner. Don’t forget to bring a guest.

eLearning Lunch & Learn
Online Professional Development
Our January eLearning Lunch & Learn (ELL) is an opportunity to learn more about online professional development (PD) opportunities to help you achieve your newly resolved New Year’s resolution. We want the ELL participants to share how they develop professionally. What’s more exciting is we’ll use a social collaboration tool to collect the online professional development sites and tools that you use. Simply, bring your mobile device to the session, hook into the County Line Bar-B-Que network, and share your professional development activities on the collaboration tool. Essentially, this is a Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) session for you to share your informal, professional development activities with others.
Our session will be divided into two parts. First we will collect the PD sites and tools you use, and then, during lunch, we will discuss the tools.
