How to evaluate social and informal learning

Jay Cross

Dan Pontefract had a great post on TrainingWreck about the inadequacy of the Kirkpatrick model in a world where learning is increasingly collaborative and networked.

Kirkpatrick is about push, not pull, learning. We already know many ways to make networks more effective.
