In December I had the pleasure of visiting the The Hague headquarters of Shell , courtesy of @ hansdezwart , their Innovation Manager for Global Learning Technologies. After a long Twitter “courtship”, we finally met IRL at Online Educa in Berlin (#oeb11) and found we indeed had lots of shared interests.

In my previous blog post, Your New Role: Learning Content Curator , I underscored the need for corporate learning professionals to begin to let go of content creation and start nurturing a content curation mindset. According to global marketing strategy guru Rohit Bhargava , a Content Curator is someone who continually finds, groups, organizes and shares the best and most relevant content on a specific issue online. As content curators for corporate learning, we are tasked with providing context and filters for learning content that not only guide learners to the appropriate formal learning opportunities, but also timely informal assets their peers and managers develop and publish.
I’m guessing that a lot of you think that now – right now – is a golden age of creation. And in many ways, it is. It’s never been a better time to make art of all kinds, from video games – my own art of choice – through books to filmed entertainment and beyond.
