What is #GuildChat?
#GuildChat is an online chat that takes place on Twitter. #GuildChat is an hour-long chat that will generally take place each Friday at 11am PT / 2pm ET. In the cases of holidays or other potential conflicts, the chat may be rescheduled or postponed. A listing of upcoming and archived chat topics is included at the end of this post.
Like many other Twitter chats, #GuildChat will be structured around a set topic and a series of questions designed to spark conversation. It’s a great way to connect, share, and learn from other members of the eLearning Guild Community.
Who Should Participate in the Chats?
This chat is designed as an extension to the conversations that are already going on in the eLearning Guild community. The chat is applicable to anyone that is interested in using technology to help individuals (and organizations) learn and improve their performance. We will be exploring topics of interest to people who work in these spaces, and invite anyone who may be interested in a chat topic to join the discussion – the more diverse the participants, the more we can all learn from the conversation.
What Topics Will Be Explored During #GuildChat?
We’ll be exploring a number of topics during the chats, and we’re always taking suggestions from members of the Guild Community on topics and questions for the future. Here’s a tentative list of topics that we plan on exploring in the weeks ahead, as well as topics we have explored in the past.
