BEtreat Comes to Canada


BEtreat workshops are designed for leaders in social learning, communities of practice and networks. You bring your projects and challenges to the 4-day workshop that most closely matches your experience and context.

State of the art

October 7 – 10, 2014 This workshop is for people who want a systematic overview and firm grasp of current principles and practice applied to their context. We will explore best practices and work together to review and apply established models, approaches and techniques to your challenges – from starting up, to cultivating, and to monitoring the value.

Cutting edge

October 14 – 17, 2014 This workshop is for people who are familiar with existing models and practice and want to develop more pioneering aspects of the field. We will explore emerging issues in social learning – as it applies to your case – as well as models and approaches we are still developing.
