ASTD 101

List to Learn, Learn to List

Kapp Notes

This month's ASTD Big Question is, again, a series of questions. I don't totally agree that work and learning are exactly the same, there is some overlap but there are specific things workers need to learn that do not result in a direct work product. For example, a knowledge worker may need to learn how to write a report more effectively but still may produce a report (work product) on time for the boss by working on the weekend.

Work Literacy and what I plan to do about it

Web Tools for Learners

From the Work Literacy blog: Work Literacy is based on the beliefs that: With the growth of new technologies, explosion of new information, and accessibility of experts around the world, there’s a growing gap between the work practices and skills that most knowledge workers possess and the resources available to them. As knowledge workers we need practical skills, methods and tools that will improve our effectiveness and help us stay on top of our game.

Why Corporate Training is Broken And How to Fix It

Jay Cross

Workers are disgruntled 10. Service industries challenge workers to acquire tacit knowledge — the kind of know-how one learns on the job, not in the classroom. Person-to-person instruction is no longer cost-effective. White collar workers outnumbered their blue collar colleagues for the first time. Unfortunately, workers avoided these awful courses whenever possible and training departments sullied their reputations. Workers are disgruntled.

The Future Of Learning Design

The eLearning Coach

Coach: In general, how do you compare the effect and impact of informal learning in the workplace versus formal, structured eLearning? Karl: A recent (2008) ASTD/Institute for Corporate Productivity (i4cp) study revealed that more than 70 percent of the knowledge that employees acquire comes from informal learning experiences but that 78% of the companies allocate less than 10% of their budget for informal learning.

Informal Learning – the other 80%

Jay Cross

Workers who know more get more accomplished. Most of what we learn, we learn from other people — parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, brothers, sisters, playmates, cousins, Little Leaguers, Scouts, school chums, roommates, teammates, classmates, study groups, coaches, bosses, mentors, colleagues, gossips, co-workers, neighbors, and, eventually, our children. Informal learning is effective because it is personal. Most of the time, it’s the individual worker.

Reviewed: Social networking services (corporate learning applications): To identify experts on a topic – most “knowledge” exists in the heads of employees; To reduce the time to find connections and answers to questions; extend relationships beyond traditional classroom instruction and e-learning courses. Document and share: learners should be actively creating rather than consuming knowledge. For knowledge management. information/knowledge workers.
