Learning Lab contains both open and closed groups. In an open group, anyone with a site account can join the discussion. Closed groups, marked as “moderated,” exist for internal groups and communities of practice that wish to engage with each other virtually in a private setting. These closed groups require you to send a request to join. You can find the list of groups on the Groups landing page here.The first step to joining a group is to create an account (see this FAQ for more information) and/or log in.The next step is to click the “Request Membership” button in the top right corner, after which a page will appear asking you to confirm your request. In the text box, please enter your name, organization, and position or job title before clicking the Join button.
