Learning Pool is running a ‘content jam‘ event in December in Birmingham, on Tuesday the 7th, at Fazeley Studios.
It’s a new type of event for us, and one I had a bit of a role in putting together. What I wanted to do was to take the idea of the ‘hack day’ and make it relevant for Learning Pool customers.
So, on the day, a bunch of Learning and Development folk from across local government will get together with some LP folk, and put together a brand new course, which will be finished on the day.
Some people will be writing the text for the course, others sourcing and taking photos, others producing video and interactive content.
Afterwards, the finished course will be put into the Learning Pool catalogue and made available to all our customers to access and remix for their own use.
The subject of the course is also being determined by the community, with a discussion on the lively Learning Pool forums to decide what to cover.
It should be a great day, and a good example of collaborative working across local government!
