2012: A time for highly connected learning specialists

Clive on Learning

True we need some managers to pull everything together, but working for these people will be specialists, whether that's in highly-technical subject areas or in new, more scalable approaches to learning, i.e. those that make use of technology. I'm finding it hard to regain my focus after the holidays. It only takes a couple of weeks for me to shift my attention almost entirely to matters other than learning technology, so I shouldn't have much trouble retiring when the time comes. So, this post acts as a way for me to re-focus on the issues that need addressing in 2012.

Training Specialist

Clark Quinn

Saw a post by Matthew Franz - where he tells us - I don't get e-learning 2.0 - and it made me wonder if Franz is a training specialist - who's not looking at more than training as a model for learning. If you look at this from a training specialist standpoint and stop at formal training as your definition of scope, then this stuff is less interesting (but still interesting). Here's what he said: I just don't get why folks are trying to lump in wikis, blogs, rss, etc. as "e-learning." RSS, Blog, Wikis, etc. Is that why this is a big deal? What am I missing here? about learning?

From "Training Specialist" to "Learning Generalist"

The Learning Generalist

The face of the Training specialist is fast changing. Here's where I envision the "Training Specialist" -- the master of the 4 walls of a classroom to metamorphose into a "Learning Generalist" that seeks to create learning opportunities regardless of the limitations of SME availability, participant schedules and physical locations. To coordinate that aspect is a bigger challenge.

Learning is everywhere

Learning and Working on the Web

There are lots of “learning specialists” in organizations and they work for variously named departments. As learning specialists, I assume they are supporting workplace learning, so let me ask: If I’m sitting at my desk with a work-related problem can I call the Training Department to quickly get me up to speed?

Educate everyone

E-Learning Provocateur

Traditionally, e-learning (along with the rest of L&D) is inward focused; its specialists are charged with developing the capability of the organisation’s employees. In contrast, marketing is outward focused; its specialists are charged with attracting more customers. My all-time favourite example of augmented reality has been reinvented. Then… nothing.

Gamifying The Compliance Story

Raptivity

Author Susan Wines eLearning Specialist, Thomson Reuters. With all training, it is important to identify the desired outcome. With compliance training, the buy-in from senior management, from the trainers, and the employees is key. For some, it may be a "check the box" that it is done. This attitude can come from managers and push downward. But, what if it is true? Perhaps the compliance training is to meet an outmoded regulation. third-party contract requires Acme's employees to train how to troubleshoot the XLT-4000. To meet the contract, the training continues. Guess what?
