Join Michelle Ockers on this webinar for 2017 to get started on Twitter or to figure out how to get greater value out of your use of this powerful networking and learning platform.

Twitter enables you to connect with others, learn about industry trends, and discover resources. It remains high on the list of Top 100 Tools for Learning, sitting at No. 3 in 2016 after a 7-year run in the No. 1 position.

With the AITD National Conference coming up it’s a great time to get active on Twitter. You can connect with other delegates ahead of time, join the backchannel during the conference, and keep the discussion going afterwards.

This session will provide practical guidance and tips on how to get started with Twitter and get the most out of it as an L&D professional. You may want to have a second device in your hands as you watch this webinar so you can try things out as they are demonstrated.
