Be a Triple-Threat CLO

CLO Magazine

It happened again recently when a colleague called my attention to a magazine article in, of all places, Computer , the IEEE Computer Society journal. Today''s educators must wear mutiple hats. CLOs are no different. Readers of my monthly musings are well aware I’ve been an avid sports fan since childhood. Even in random conversations and totally unrelated contexts, I frequently turn to the athletic field when looking for an apt metaphor or story. It was a column by education editor Ann E.K. In the early days of pro football, a triple-threat man could do it all.

These four articles were published in Learning Technologies Magazine October 2013 to January 2014. I am republishing on my blog in reverse order.

Leave Learning to Employees, sort of

CLO magazine November 2015. This article describes the CLO of Kaplan as he adapts to a world where employees can route around learning to find their own content. The CLO long ago abdicated responsibility for the totality that might be labeled learning in favor of focusing on specific issues. The article returns to employee-created or shared content. What nonsense.

As more and more risk takers take advantage of social networks we will begin to see a snowball effect. Many will wait until the academics prove that social networks are a viable business tool.
