Peer Learning @ The IAWTV

Members of the IAWTV posses a staggeringly broad scope of knowledge and skills that could go toe to toe with any other industry organization. The one thing that the IAWTV has that they don’t is community (not to mention our techno-superiority… j/k).

I think that a great way to leverage our community and it’s knowledge/skills to strengthen not-only individual members, but the organization as a whole, would be to start a peer learning initiative. We may be well-versed in one or many areas, but there’s always something with which we have limited experience.

The idea is to team up an “expert” with a “novice” for either hand’s on shadowing, simple discussion or whatever works best.

So if you are an “expert” willing to help a “novice” learn your skills please post below with your area(s) of expertise and contact info.

Likewise if you are wanting to learn something.

School House Rocky said it best.

Kamikaze Coffee Klatch

One of my favorite ways to get to know someone new is to have coffee with them and just shoot the $hit. And in yet another flash of genius [read sarcastically] I came up with the idea of randomly assigning two people from the community to meet up for coffee. Interested members can opt to have a single meet-up arranged, or may elect to have them on a recurring schedule. Though I like the idea of the selection being entirely random (And much easier to accomplish tech-wise) , It would probably be a good idea to allow members to elect to be matched only with their selected peer groups. I also Like the idea of location based selection.

I think this is a great way to meet people in the community and solidify relationships, and in turn strengthen the community in general.
