It’s back — the Federal News Radio Book Club. In fact, we haven’t had a “meeting” since April when we discussed Daniel Pink’s book Drive.
newcomers… Think of the Federal News Radio Book Club as a wonky
version of the Oprah book club. Unlike most book clubs, we don’t meet in
a physical location. We’ll hold the book club “meeting” right on the
air on Federal News Radio 1500 AM’s DorobekINSIDER and/or online at DorobekINSIDER.com.
And during the hour, we will be joined by the authors of the book…
and by a few other people who can spur the discussion… and we’ll take
questions and comments about the book.
There are several ways you can participate — including right here.
All of that being said, let me give you the details…
When: Friday, November 12, 2010 at 3p ET
Where: On Federal News Radio 1500 AM’s DorobekINSIDER… and online at DorobekINSIDER.com.
And the book: The New Social Learning: A Guide to Transforming Organizations Through Social Media by Tony Bingham and Marcia Conner. Bingham [Twitter] is the is President and Chief Executive Officer of the American Society for Training & Development (ASTD). Bingham [Twitter] is a partner at Altimeter Group,
which creates strategies for collaborative culture, social business,
and workplace learning with enterprise leaders and technology providers
who serve them.
Why this book?

How interesting! I have never been in a book club before. I may just have to join in on this one. Thanks for letting us know, Christopher!

If you haven’t started reading The New Social Learning yet, one of the authors, Tony Bigham, was on Federal News Radio 1500 AM’s DorobekINSIDER. He gave us a taste of what the book is about.
If you haven’t bought the book yet, you can get The New Social Learning here. And find more information about the Federal News Radio Book Club here.
Essentially, it is like the Oprah book club — on Nov. 12, we’ll have the authors on the program. I’m working to also have some esteemed thinkers join us.
But I also hope to get your thoughts on the book — what do the theories and concepts mean to you and how you do your job? What spoke to you… and what seemed to be missing. We’d love for you to join the discussion right here… and we’ll use that as fodder for our discussion.
Also if you have thoughts about people who would be good do participate in the discussion, let me know that as well.

Great post by GovLoop’s Andrew Krzmarzick
Stop Learning the Hard Way
He discusses three concepts:
1. Informal learning is the new normal.
2. The real experts are in cubicles, not just classrooms.
3. Social networks are the perfect, perpetual classroom.
Those concepts are highlighted in the Federal News Radio Book Club book, The New Social Learning, which we’ll be discussing on Federal News Radio 1500 AM’s DorobekINSIDER radio program on Friday, Nov. 12. Love to hear your thoughts about the book — and questions for the author.

Stop learning the hard way — Federal News Radio 1500 AM DorobekINSIDER Web editor Jolie Lee has a interesting write that pulls together thoughts on the new ways that we learn. Guess what — less and less of it comes from the formal classroom setting. There are real opportunities to learn — and bring about change.
That is essentially what the Federal News Radio book club selection, The New Social Learning, is all about: The new ways that we can learn.
The discussion takes place on Friday, Nov. 12 on Federal News Radio 1500 AM’s DorobekINSIDER. I hope you’ll share your thoughts here — what are the challenges you face in bringing about change… in learning… in teaching…
