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.

Four Greatest Challenges Facing Learning Leaders in this Decade: No 2, CLO as Facilitator or Enabler

Nigel Paine

These four articles were published in Learning Technologies Magazine October 2013 to January 2014. I am republishing on my blog in reverse order. Each article is based on a Chapter of my book: “the Learning Challenge” which will be published later this year. So this is actually no 2 in the reprint and no 3 as originally printed. Hope it is useful. Leader as Facilitator or Enabler. The role of corporate learning, and the role of the learning leader are on a trajectory. It takes us from a course catalogue mentality, to the rich provisioning of a learning environment.

Leave Learning to Employees, sort of

Jay Cross

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.

CLO Article - Social Network Blurs Boundaries of Learning

Corporate eLearning Strategies and Development

school system in the Netherlands is highlighted in a CLO article as one of the risk takers in this space. 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. And still others will wait until there is a rapid development tool created to make it easy with a step by step manual to get it done. Although my guess is that they don't see it as risk taking at all. Change is not easy, and it is certainly not immediate. Everyone can use it.

Why Should Managers Teach?

Is MOOC Suitable For Corporate & Workplace Learning?

Upside Learning

You know an idea’s time has come when ASTD and CLO Magazine start talking about it and when Google launches a product (free BTW) to support the movement.
