Collaborative Learning and Technology in Network Improvement Communities

Technology and Collective Learning in Networks

10:00 a.m.–11:00 a.m. PT / 1:00–2:00 p.m. ET

The Carnegie Foundation invites you to join improvement leader Anthony Bryk, author of Learning to Improve, for an exploration of the collaborative learning challenges encountered by networked improvement communities.

What structures are necessary to ensure that robust learning happens across a practicing community? What are the dimensions of information cross-sharing in a healthy network? What practices enable or inhibit a community’s learning? Who adjudicates knowledge in such distributed structures? And what tools and technologies can NICs use to address all of these issues to catalyze and sustain learning in a community?

The webinar will include a demonstration of supportive learning features from Carnegie’s Networked Improvement Learning and Support (NILS) platform, which is specifically designed to facilitate the initiation and development of NICs.
