Rejected: On being disappointed, sorta

George Siemens

I’ve never really actively “looked for work” In my late teens, my brother and I started a series of restaurants (we owned and operated seven in total). The hospitality field is very hard, however, on families and relationships as it consumes an enormous amount of time. Eventually, for a variety of reasons, I left the industry and started working in training and development and returned to University of Manitoba as a student.

I see a lot of requests from people who are interested in working with us. Some people sabotage their chances of joining the team before I ever talk to them! you ask? Personal sabotage occurs when people don’t present themselves as someone who pays attention to details–often as early as their introductory email. Someone new to e-learning might not realize how important attention to detail is in the industry. Programmers need to create courses that work!

Stealing from the Rich…

Stealing what works in elearning from the rich corporations, that is… First, my usual caveat: we’re not corporations. We shouldn’t assume that everything they do is worthy of emulation by associations and other nonprofits. But that doesn’t mean we can’t learn from them, right? And because the series we did that dissected what the ASTD BEST Award winners did in 2009 had so many hits (and still does), I figure it’s worth our time to look at some other companies, what they’re doing, and what we can learn from them. Source? This happens at Google a lot.

Putting the model to use

Onlignment

Over the past year we have been publishing extracts from The New Learning Architect. We continue with the first part of chapter 11: Models are fun. In their attempts to explain the complex cause and effect relationships of life, they encourage us to believe that we can become masters of our own destinies. If we’re discerning, we’ll reflect on the assumptions underlying the model, and test these against our experiences and the experiences of our peers. If so then this chapter is for you.

In my 2009 book, Delivering E-Learning, I made a number of forecasts, and as I wrote those three years ago, it seems timely to review them.
