April’s Big Question - Stuck?

Bottom-Line Performance

The Learning Circuits blog posted their big question for April – Stuck? One of the most common themes that emerged in the conversation around this month’s Big Question was that blogging was a key way for people to get unstuck. Other respondents to this month’s Big Question had some interesting ideas, like Jeff Goldman’s favorite getting unstuck technique, making a prototype. The Quinnovator brings the question back to the idea that training departments need to change the way the operate. Getting Unstuck? I agree wholeheartedly.

August Big Question - Feedback

eLearning Cyclops

The Learning Circuits' Big Question for August is to provide feedback on the "Big Question" itself. I have a high opinion of it and have always enjoyed reflecting on the questions posed and reading the responses posted. One of the goals of the Big Question is to "Get different perspectives on topics that are of interest to workplace learning professionals." I feel the Big Question achieves that goal. Here a few issues I would like to see addressed in future Big Questions. I always look forward to the Big Question.

April's Big Question

eLearning Cyclops

In a nutshell, this month's Big Question is, do you ever get stuck getting new solutions or ideas accepted and implemented by your organization or client? In most organizations, especially large ones, one must get a lot of buy-in and this usually involves making a business case, predicting cost savings, efficiencies, potential return on investment, etc., etc., Oh, case studies and benchmarking from other organizations help too. And during these processes remember you are not just the person delivering training, but you must be the training consultant and instructional designer.

The Big Question

eLearning Cyclops

February's Big Question on the Learning Circuits blog is "What is the impact of the economy on you and your organization? What are you doing as a result?" Here is my response: I am an e-Learning designer at a bank that is currently being acquired by another larger bank (this is how the economy affected my organization). The acquisition will be complete by June, at which time I will be facing a lay-off. There is a small chance I will be offered a position, but at this time I can only speculate on that possibility. So, What am I doing? In the last year I have delved into web 2.0,

Big Question - Working with SMEs

eLearning Cyclops

This month's Big Question at Learning Circuits is on working with subject matter experts (SME). First off, thank you Tony at Learning Circuits for using my suggestion as this month's question. Ask the right questions (Analysis) Never assume the SME knows the training need. Be sure they also look at the flow of the course, accuracy of questions, usability, and identify any technical problems. And always give them appropriate credit and a big thank you. In my opinion, working successfully with SMEs is the most challenging part of instructional design.

The Big Question: How should presenters address multitasking?

I’m just in time to tackle this month’s Big Question from the Learning Circuits Blog. The question was prompted to some extent by my post Multitasking is now every presenter’s problem , in which I put forward the notion that it wasn’t just webinar presenters who had to deal with their audience multitasking, this was now rife at face-to-face events as well. Life’s too short

The Big Question: How do I spend my time?

Clive on Learning

June's Big Question on the Learning Circuits Blog asks a personal question: How much time do you spend and how do you find the time for reading blogs, twitter, social networks, etc.? On the other hand, in the context of a whole load of people responding to the question, some patterns might emerge that affect us all. Not such a big commitment. Who knows?

Big Question - In the Year 2019

eLearning Cyclops

The March Big Question from Learning Circuits is What will workplace learning look like in 10 years? Here are some of the things I see in 10 years: We will see much more informal learning and knowledge management. There will be a need for trainers and/or knowledge managers who will guide, coach, be a catalyst for, and monitor social media and informal learning. Participants will have much more control of learning events. And with the use of technology, courses will be far more reactive to their audiences' learning needs. Soft skills training (e.g. They will be extinct by 2019.

The big question: predictions for 2010

Clive on Learning

The Big Question for January in the Learning Circuits Blog is, rather predictably, what are your predictions for 2010? In 2009 I predicted : Most of the cool stuff (informal learning, social media, games and sims, mobile learning) will have to stay on the back burner, because management will simply not be interested in experimenting. This is hardly surprising as things stand.

Big Question - Presenting the Value of Social Media for Learning

Learning Circuit's Big Question this month is "How do I communicate the value of social media as a learning tool to my organization?" In response, I have put together a list of strategies I feel are important and if done right can be effective. Management buy-in Demo its use to decision makers. Show them case studies (from your industry, if possible, and emphasize return on investment (ROI)). Emphasize ROI again. Can it increase sales, reduce losses, limit errors, etc.? Teach them how to use it and continually encourage them to use it. Read more about Working With IT.

Big Question: What new skills and knowledge are required for learning professionals?

Clive on Learning

This month's Big Question on the Learning Circuits Blog asks 'What new skills and knowledge are required for learning professionals?' Big mistake. Well,contrary to many commentators, I am not so sure that l&d professionals need to tear up the rule book and start again. Let's take an example. Now they have a hell of a lot of catching up to do. They will be welcomed warmly.

The Big Question: What is the impact of the economy on your organisation?

Clive on Learning

The Learning Circuits Blog Big Question for February is What is the impact of the economy on you and your organization? Although I generally prefer the roundabout to the big dipper, I'm also aware that necessity is the mother of invention - recessions present many new opportunities and force decisions to be made that would otherwise be postponed. What are you doing as a result?

The Big Question: What will workplace learning look like in 10 years?

Clive on Learning

Another month of my life gone, another Big Question from the Learning Circuits Blog. And the questions don't get any easier do they? Can it be that time again? The problem with predictions is that they're almost impossible to make with any certainty. And if they cover too short a period, then it's easy for people to check back and prove you wrong. Don't be daft.

This month’s Big Question in the ASTD Learning Circuits Blog is ‘How do I communicate the value of social media as a learning tool to my organisation?’ How indeed? Bottom-up learning is managed by employees themselves. Because it is in their interests to gain whatever knowledge and skills they need to perform effectively.
