The Big Question - What I Learned About Learning in 2009

Upside Learning

The Big Question posed on Learning Circuits this time,as always , is thought provoking –. What did you learn about Learning in 2009? I think my learning for 2009 was focused around three primary areas; this obviously derives from my focus on innovation in elearning and is biased, but here goes. We learned that there isn’t one single workable solution for mobile technologies. This year I’ve spent a fair bit of time learning about mobile technology.

Impact of informal learning: output learning #LCBQ

Challenge to Learn

The question of the month #LCBQ is: How do you assess whether your informal learning, social learning, continuous learning and performance support initiatives have the desired impact or if they achieve the desired results? All these terms have one common denominator; they all are non-formal learning activities and processes. So this is an excellent question. So in fact you can ask the same question for formal learning activities.

The Big Question: Leading the charge

Clive on Learning

In the Learning Circuits Blog , Tony Karrer poses a whole series of questions related to the role of learning and development professionals in promoting informal learning / social learning / learning 2.0 within organisations: Q: Must learning professionals be literate in these things? Well I don't know about must , but they certainly should, if they want to remain credible as sources of expertise on organisational learning.

New Skills for Learning Professionals

ID Reflections

This month's Big Question from LCB has received a huge response. I have pasted the question here: "In a Learning 2.0 world, where learning and performance solutions take on a wider variety of forms and where churn happens at a much more rapid pace, what new skills and knowledge are required for learning professionals?" This is not a very new question and has been doing its rounds in different forums. Learning Skills.

The big question: what did you learn about learning in 2007?

Clive on Learning

The Learning Circuits Blog has started up its monthly Big Question again and the question, perhaps appropriately as we see out what remains of the year, is 'what did you learn about learning in 2007?' However, my own reflections have centred more on how it is that people learn at work, not in terms of what goes on inside their heads, but in terms of the circumstances in which learning occurs.

The big question: What is the scope of our responsibility as learning professionals?

Clive on Learning

The Big Question for March on the Learning Circuits Blog is 'what is the scope of our responsibility as learning professionals?' I don't regard this question as just a topical response to the increased interest in informal learning - it's an issue that has been there as long as we have had learning professionals. we can provide an infrastructure which will support bottom-up learning.

Workplace Learning in a World “Beyond Automation”

Learnnovators

The digital disruptors in the shape of Robots, Big Data and Sensors are here. The remaining tasks will require individuals who fundamentally think differently about work and learning. The key question we (as L&D/HR) need to think of is how are we going to support workplace learning to build such skills in the workforce? The future will be driven by learning agility, effectiveness, and process innovation.

2009 Predictions How Did I Do?

Tony Karrer

1 - "Self-Directed Learning" Increases Due to economic pressures, companies are going to reduce training budgets to a point where it doesn't make sense to create content on marginal topics. Instead, we will call this "self-directed learning" and will do our best to support the workforce to learn it on their own with minimal guidance and support. But the reality was more than that as I explored in posts like Business of Learning and Models for Learning Questions.
