The Big Question: how to assess informal learning

Clive on Learning

The Big Question on the ASTD Learning Circuits Blog is long enough to fill a post all by itself: How do you assess whether your informal learning, social learning, continuous learning, performance support initiatives have the desired impact or achieve the desired results? If you check out the blog you’ll find some fascinating answers to the question. Can they perform?

The Big Question: How do you respond to the ‘I want it now’ demand?

Clive on Learning

On the ASTD Learning Circuits blog, they ask the question “How do you address the ‘I want it now’ demand from stakeholders.” Now I know this question went up on April 1st but I’m taking it at face value. If a big story comes in, they don’t hold it for the day after next, they spring into action and put something together now. Or does it?

The Big Question: Breaking down the organisational walls to learning

Clive on Learning

In the ASTD Learning Circuits blog this month, they comment on the fact that, in many organisations, learners are reaching outside of the organisation to enhance their learning experience, through social networking and other media.

2009 Top Posts and Topics: Kapp Notes

Kapp Notes

The ASTD Big question this month is an annual question: What did you learn about learning in 2009? So one of the tasks I will do to answer this question is to see what posts were the Best of 2009 from several different sources. So, I teamed with alumni Robyn Defelice at Dishing Design and updated the article for ASTD. The Metro DC ASTD chapter asked me to do an interview about audio in e-learning and I linked to the interview and shared some of my notes. Tags: ASTD Big Question Random Web 2.0 Statistics.

Learning Circuits April Big Question: Are We There Yet

Kapp Notes

The Learning Circuit's Blog question for this month is " ILT and Off-The-Shelf Vendors, What Should they Do ?" I am going to answer that question by recanting a story from Gadgets, Games and Gizmos for Learning. In high school, I literally had a lesson on how to fold a map. The lesson was part of a six week class on how to read and use maps. I always had the last flap inside out.

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? There will be enough exceptions to keep those already active in these fields going, but no big shift in corporate learning practice. The recent ASTD study certainly bears this out. only one will matter and that is surviving the downturn.

Kapp Notes

This month the question is "Where are the Examples of eLearning?"

It is called the EPA Watershed Academy. Wikis Explained.

Does the Big Question Make Sense Anymore?

Tony Karrer

I’ve been facilitating the Big Question on ASTD’s Learning Circuit’s blog since sometime in 2006. Last month’s big question was Instruction in a Information Snacking Culture? The question was all about how we consume and work with information: People seem to be spending less time going through information in depth and less willing to spend time on information. We seem to be snacking on information, not consuming it in big chunks. If there are some meaningful responses to this month’s question Open Content in Workplace Learning? ,

The Big Question: What tools should we learn?

Clive on Learning

This month’s Big Question on the ASTD Learning Circuits Blog asks what software tools, as learning and development professionals, we should set out to learn. On careful reflection, I’d have to say none. I’ve witnessed terrible examples of the training friends of mine have received when they decided to become more tech-savvy. You need to know how to program to use a computer?

Clive on Learning

February Big Question: What Questions?

The Learning Circuits

The February Big Question goes to the root of what The Big Question is all about.

The Big Question: How do I communicate the value of social media as a learning tool to my organisation?

Clive on Learning

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.

We've somewhat lost our fearless Blogmeister, Dave Lee, so we've not been doing the Big Questions the past few months. The Big Question for December is: What did you learn about learning in 2007?

The LCB Big Question Reframed: Should More Learning Professionals Be Blogging?

Tony Karrer

Separately, Dave Lee ( The Learning Circuits Blog: Throwing a Big Community Net ) has provided a couple of interesting follow-up opportunities including keeping track of conversations across various posts that relate to the original post and a poll. One thing that appears to be different about this exercise than in a discussion group, half of the response posts to any question is a response of "Here's why you are asking the wrong question." There were many posts that did challenge the question including my own. we've seen some pretty amazing discussion. Maybe not?

Help, I have an Instructional Design Master's Degree and I Can't Create E-Learning

Kapp Notes

This month's ASTD Big Question relates to a person who graduated from a theory-only program in Instructional Design and was not provided with the experience of actually creating instruction using any of the latest tools. So the question is: What advice would you give to someone who has no experience with e-learning development tools? Where do you start? Alternatively.

List to Learn, Learn to List

Kapp Notes

This month's ASTD Big Question is, again, a series of questions. Apparently one BIG question is not enough for the learning and development community. We aim to exceed expectations. If you have a to-learn list and are willing to share, and willing to share how you work with that list, that would likely be helpful information. Should they be captured?

Why Open Content is Not Yet Adopted in the Workplace

Kapp Notes

ASTD's Big Question for March is How do we leverage open content in workplace learning? Tags: ASTD Big Question The concept seems straightforward--a no brainer, take content that is used by many different organizations, and share it with others so that the overall cost is extremely low or free. Many organizations are involved with such initiatives. One of the best known is MIT's Open Courseware project. And the concept seems to be gaining momentum. OERs include learning content as well as tools to create and share the content.

To answer the question at ASTD's Learning Circuits Blog , I am going to try to stick to Tony's initial thought of specific questions and dive very deep into the technique I use when consulting for a needs assessment or evaluation.

Find Speaker for Local ASTD Chapter

Tony Karrer

I've been approached quite a bit recently to do presentations at local ASTD chapters or to help find a speaker. This is similar to the issue being discussed as part of this month's Big Question - Network Feedback and in Getting Help. So, I'm hoping that folks can recommend what I should do with a request such as a request I just received (and they've allowed me to post it publicly) for help: I need a speaker in the Birmingham, Alabama area for a local ASTD on eLearning 2.0 The reality is that I can't afford to do free presentations at local events. or Work Literacy.
