Transcript – Aug. 6, 2015: Vacation as Self-Development

lrnchat is an online chat over the social messaging service Twitter. It is held on Thursdays at 8:30-9:30pm ET/5:30-6:30pm PT. Participants are people interested in the topic of learning from one another and who want to discuss how to help other people learn in formal, informal, social and mobile ways. We aim to steer clear of topics that are more “training department” oriented and focus on how people learn, what they learn, and what we’re learning.  If you an idea for a topic that you would like to suggest for #lrnchat, please feel free to reach out to any of the Chat Hosts.

This Week’s Questions

  • Are you planning/did you take vacation this summer? Where? Why?
  • What are some ways that you self-develop during vacation?
  • What is the biggest learning “aha” you experienced while on a vacation?
  • Does your org. culture support taking “brain vacations” throughout the day? What does it look like?
  • Do you have a book(s) or article you’ve been saving to read for vacation? Why? What?
  • If you could learn or try one thing completely new this summer what would it be?
  • What is something that you learned tonight or will try?
