100 Conversation Topics

Tony Karrer

Almost every time I have a conversation, I learn something new. But I don't have nearly enough time to have conversations, learn and write blog posts. So now that some people called me influential , I'm hoping that I can leverage my influence to inspire people to have a conversation with me and help me with my lack of time. So, here are my suggested 100 conversation topics that I wish I had time to speak to you ( yes YOU ) about.

Is Social Learning Fun?

Tony Karrer

Robert Kennedy recently posted 100 Conversations and Hot Wheels where he addressed one of my 100 Conversation Topics that you can find aggregated on eLearning Learning as 100 Conversations. Isn't it already a kind of fun – interaction and conversation? He chose to write about how he works differently from 10 years ago … one of my favorite topics. Some good stuff in his post, but something that caught my eye was: Have my work skills changed?

Personal Learning Books

Tony Karrer

Brett Miller has taken me up on my 100 Conversation Topics which you can see what's happening at eLearning Learning - 100 Conversations. His post were some book recommendations for learning professionals. I must say that his list of books was quite interesting and come from a bit outside where I normally think.

Audience Member

On ICT in Early Learning someone (not sure their name) has responded to my Conversation Topics post (see them via eLearning Learning - 100 Conversations ). This may be quite interesting as one of the first comments was: I have set up a draft post behind the scenes of the 25 of the 100 conversations that I feel inspired to participate in. I look forward to further conversation.

2009 Top Posts and Topics

Tony Karrer

It’s interesting at the end of the year to go back through blog posts to see what my Best of 2009 is. I’ll also do a post similar to my post last year 2008 2009 that will look at my 12 eLearning Predictions for 2009. But for now, let me just focus on my Best of 2009. To create this list, I’m using eLearning Learning as described in Using Special Parameters to Create Year End Post for details on how I’ve come up with this list. I’m including posts from December 2008.

Can Find You

Tony Karrer

Engage me in my 100 Conversation Topics. Someone added a reason not to blog to my Top Ten Reasons To Blog and Top Ten Not to Blog : Because you think no one will read it.how can people find it? I realized that in all my posts talking about blogging and Pushing People to Blog as a learning tool, I had never specifically blogged about how you find readers - or more appropriately - what should you do so that potential readers can find you.

No Trust

This is why I talk about the importance of new skills for Leveraging Networks , Network Feedback , F inding Expertise , Using Social Media to Find Answers to Questions , Learning through Conversation.

New Blog

Tony Karrer

Ingrid O'Sullivan has a new blog and is the first person to take me up on my post 100 Conversation Topics which asks people to start a conversation with me and get aggregated into 100 conversations. I'm hoping as I gain more experience, have more "conversations" and learn from the likes of Tony, this will no longer be my hardest ongoing task - but for now dear readers please read with patience. Your goal should be to have interesting conversations.

Training Standards

Tony Karrer

Bill Sawyer posted in response to my Conversation Topics post. You can find posts aggregated via eLearning Learning - 100 Conversations. I've not met Bill before, and this was a great way to start. He is definitely challenged and thinking a lot about training standards. Bill has quite a few questions in his post: eLearning is suffering from the Beta/VHS or Blu-ray/HD-DVD challenge. In fact, it is probably even more systemic. For example, it is elearning? eLearning?
