You can participate in an online community of practice on such topics as 21st Century Apprenticeship, an upcoming Nursing Summit, and Driving Transformation focusing on global innovation. One that I find particularly useful is Reemployment Works, an ongoing dialogue of national efforts to reemploy individuals who have lost their jobs due to recent economic shifts. The site shares learnings from the National ReEmployment Summit held earlier this year in Baltimore and the 6 follow-up Regional Recovery Forums that will build upon the lessons learned.
These communities of practice offer an array of social media tools such as webinars, discussion forums, blogs, twitter feeds, collaborative writing via a wiki, video links, podcasts, sample slide presentations, interactive calendar of events, and informative white papers like this one on Re-Employment Networks. These various social media tools allow us to collaboratively develop strategies and share best practices in a way that wasn't possible just a few years ago. The tools are powerful but they only work if you participate.
