SEPTEMBER 17, 2009 What does a real life e-learning strategy look like?
I was reading a post recently about e-learning strategies [link] and one of the things that I totally agreed with was the fact that there aren’t that many examples of e-learning strategies available on the internet ! Now as much as I like to take I also acknowledge I gotta give back too ! So here’s my 2 cents worth. have created a few e-learning strategies in my past roles and I have learnt a lot about them along the way. started off small.creating strategies for local learning program rollouts, for small L&D departments and then onto national and global e-learning initiatives.

AUGUST 29, 2011 ‘Is social learning informal?’ …what is social learning anyway?!
I just watched this very short video that stated that ‘Social Learning Is Not By Definition Informal’ – it made me think! Tammara says a few things in the video, mainly: 1. learning = social. social learning = learning between you and another person. social learning NOT informal. My question is: what is her interpretation of informal learning? Because learning to walk is social and also informal.there is no structure or assessment or rules around it. So if learning to walk is social learning then social learning can be informal. And what about Connectivism.is

AUGUST 27, 2010 Going from classroom to blended learning: Put it all in the blender and hit go!
So what will you get if you put all your classroom materials in the blender and hit go? right ol mess! It’s been a busy week (with non stop rain in Amsterdam and a terrible cold!) one of the things on my plate this week was to review a proposed ‘blended’ learning module. thought going over my way of ‘blending’ might be an interesting read and as always I’m keen to hear feedback or tips for improving! How do I blend? then make a skeleton outline of key topics and what activities are associated to them. learning for theory/concepts + Classroom for discussion & practice.

AUGUST 21, 2010 First day at work = reading that 1 million page manual!
There’s a lot of research out there to support the notion that on-boarding new employees is crucial for engagement and shortening the time to competence. We know that sitting someone down and giving them a big fat manual or 100 PowerPoint slides to read on their first few days doesn’t work. But we do it anyway. I’ve worked for a lot of very small companies (ranging from 5 to 15 employees) and there was never any type of structured ‘On-boarding’ (or Orientation training). Unfortunately not. I’m one month into my new job. What have we got? What do we need?

NOVEMBER 17, 2009 Tips for managing e-learning projects
Just read a great post on tips for managing e-learning projects: [link]. think the most important tip is ‘ Communicate, communicate, communicate!’ ’ - I have found we become too caught up in emails and our own deadlines etc that we forget to touch base to see how everyone is coming along. One of the things that really worked for us with our last big e-learning project were daily 5 minute ‘huddles’ At the beginning of the day my team would gather for a brief on how the day before had gone, any major issues or hiccups and plans for the day.

E-BITES From nothing to something…how we strategically built a regional LMSe-learning community
| FRIDAY, JUNE 10, 2011
One of the tasks i had coming into my role at ING Insurance was to manage the administration of the Learner Management System (LMS). We had a system but no central support or center of excellence to guide the regional L&D teams and ILC admins on how to best manage both the system and their use of e-learning. This was being done in an ad-hoc way. It was a big task that required us to: Employ a regional administrator to act as central point of contact for support and advice. Carry out an analysis of the region – who was administering the system in each country?, How did we go? MORE >>
E-BITES We have to invite Learning to the party?!
| MONDAY, DECEMBER 13, 2010
Earlier this year i participated in a ’100 Day Challenge’ – a GE Workout style experience where management identifies a key issue or business challenge and hands the task of solving it to a group of employees closer to the business – the challenge is to come up with a viable solution in 100 days and see it through to implementation. Now this was an excellent experience for everyone involved – my team came up with a great proposal, the leadership team loved it and it’s currently being implemented. Sounds like a win-win situation right? Hmmmm. MORE >>
E-BITES Right turn back into my world…L&D!
| FRIDAY, AUGUST 20, 2010
After a very (slow and not very motivating) 12 months in what was meant to be an e-learning design and development role i have moved back into a more generalist L&D role. And i feel like i’m home again! The last 12 months have been a huge learning curve – I was buried deep within the business, surrounded by very technical content trying to develop e-learning. Lots of bumps and hiccups along the way meant i only really got my hands dirty on one project. But things have changed for the better ! Yay for comebacks MORE >>
E-BITES Argentina and radical education
| THURSDAY, OCTOBER 8, 2009
Going through some old docs on my laptop i came across this paper i wrote during my Master’s program at UTS. It is not e-learning related but it may be an interesting read for some. In the paper i discuss the Recuperated Factory Movement in Argentina (circa 2001 – 2006) from an adult education perspective. bit of a snapshot: Buenos Aires, December 2001: “Que se vayan todos” (they all must go) yelled by millions of Argentineans to the beat of pots and pans was the catalyst that signalled the country’s rapid fall into a social and economic abyss.
