We've got a great discussion going on right now about the future of education / training and how it's being completely disrupted. Please chime in:

Hey TOC - 

I know everyone is looking for good free training these days (that require no travel) so I thought I'd mention that we are hosting a free virtual conference next Tuesday where we are offering up to 4 CPEs.

Feel free to share with your colleague across your agency.  Info below:

GovLoop is hosting their 2nd Annual Government Innovators Virtual Summit on 9/10 and it's a great resource if you are looking to get some great free training and get ahead in your career.

Here's a quick preview of what each attendee will get:

- Access to 7 different free online trainings ranging from "10 Tips to Get Your Next Promotion", "Data-Driven Citizen Engagement", "Mobile Innovation", "How to Lead Successful Government Projects", "10 Traits of a Government Innovator", among more

- Live chats with career experts on topics including resume tips, networking 101, and growing your government career

- Opening Keynote: Bill Eggers, author of The Social Revolution: How Business, Government, and Social Enterprises Are Teaming Up to Solve Society's Toughest Problems

- Tons of free downloadable research guides and other great resources

- Up to 4 CPEs per attendee (CPE's will be contingent upon which sessions you attend).

Hey TOC Family! I wanted to share with you GovLoop's newest guide titled, "Building Better Conferences and Training: The Value of Virtual Events in Government."

It includes the survey results of 335 professionals and their views on virtual training and events, 4 government case studies, 5 industry subject matter experts and 10 best practices for design and delivery.

Looking forward to your feedback on it!

Are trainers caught between a rock and hard place?

Can you help Gini - she asks what frequency and manner do you announce training opportunities to staff?

Debbie asks what topics do federal managers need the most training in?

Hi everyone, as a follow up to my announcement at the PDP luncheon today (great topic and presentation by Tom Fox, by the way!), just wanted to let you know all the social media options for you. Use one, some, or all! Look forward to learning, networking, and collaborating with everyone - in person and virtually!

GovLoop Group: You're obviously here already ;)

LinkedIn Event: Note whether you are attending or following the event

Twitter: Follow @TOC_DC (!/toc_dc) and @TOCInstitute (!/tocinstitute), don't forget to use the hashtag #tocai2012 for all of your conference related tweets! Also, post any pictures you take at the conference to TwitPic!


If anyone needs help before, during, or after the conference using or getting started with any of these platforms, do not hesitate to let me know.  Will get you liking, posting, tweeting, and participating in discussions before you know it!  Or, I can show you how you can just listen and learn from these valuable resources.

See you in Ocean City!

Hey TOCers...anyone have suggestion for topics or skills they want their next generation of leaders to learn?  We are gearing up for our 2012 NextGen event and would love feedback
