CURATION IS the critical ability to get the Right Content in the Right Format to the Right Employee at the Right Time.

CURATION IS the process of finding, sorting, organizing, rating, ranking, recommending, validating, clearing, tracking, and personalizing learning resources.

CURATION IS essential in the era of more content, more context, more resources, more sources, and more complexity. For today’s learners, there are so many choices, yet so little curation.

Elliott Masie leads his popular Curation & Learning LAB from February 4-6, 2020, at the 10,000 square foot MASIE Learning LAB in Saratoga Springs, NY. Elliott will host a small group of learning colleagues from a wide range of industries around the world, deeply exploring, experimenting, assessing, and deploying a range of curation strategies in this 2 ½ day intensive exploration and lab experience.
