St John Ambulance


Towards the end of 2019, I joined Carl and his Volunteer Training Team team at St John Ambulance, to explore social and collaborative learning. I design and facilitated an interactive half-day workshop, encouraging the sharing of experience, information gathering, brainstorming of new ways of working and action planning for the coming weeks and months. I shared current thinking around this topic, new, existing resources and examples of how social and collaborative learning in organisations in introduced effectively.

I supported the team, to:

  • explore what they understood by the term social learning
  • reflect how social they were as a learner; as an organisation; and their volunteers?
  • look at how technology within social and collaborative learning is used
  • understand social learning in practice in the work of learning and development
