Social media tools, such as Twitter, Facebook, and YouTube, are changing the way that students and faculty communicate, share ideas, and build networks. The interest in social media is quickly increasing, and as with many other technologies, the educational community is looking to harness the potential of these resources to improve teaching and learning.

While social media is popular, educators need to better understand how to use it to improve student learning, while being mindful of privacy concerns. At the conference we showcase some effective uses of social media in student learning. We’ll discuss ways to use social media to create experiential learning activities, improve student interactivity and engagement, and develop community and professional networks.

Business as usual is no longer so usual. We’re not so much in economic recovery as we are in organizational transformation. In today’s complex environment, the ability to adapt and change — to develop new innovations in product and process that lead to competitive advantage — is the key to success. For learning leaders, this “new normal” requires learning that is not reactive but adaptive.
