The Right Place to Find Help: ASTD's Big Question

Kapp Notes

This month's ASTD Big Question on the Learning Circuit's Blog is about Social Networking and finding help and expertise if you have a question or a concern for which you need input and/or advice. The basic question is " If you need input from people, where's the best place to ask?" But, then the question breaks into sub-questions. The assumption seems to be that there is one "best" place for asking a question.

Keeping Up - April's Big Question

eLearning Cyclops

April's Big Question from Learning Circuits is "How to Keep up?" This is in reference the immense and rapidly expanding technology tools. However, being involved in an e-learning community is a big help. It is tough to stay on top of all the emerging tools. For me it is a blog community and following many experts on Twitter. Not only am I often made aware of new tools, but also get opinions, tips, and examples of their use.

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. Who was responsible for providing reference information and other job aids - the line, specialist technical writers or specialist trainers?

Learning Management In The Age of Learning Engagement

Grovo

In May 2014, Corporate Learning Network sat down with enterprise learning professional Chris Rosso for a conversation on the future of workplace learning. He was slated to be the keynote speaker at “NextGen LMS,” Corporate Learning Network’s upcoming expo. But when asked what the ‘next generation’ of the LMS might actually be, Rosso didn’t even accept the question. I guess I have a big question around, is there a future for the LMS?

2009 Predictions How Did I Do?

Tony Karrer

But the reality was more than that as I explored in posts like Business of Learning and Models for Learning Questions. The second half of the prediction “self directed learning” got less attention during the year than I anticipated, but it was there and certainly was a big part of the discussion around social and informal learning. There will also be growth in discussions and social networks for collaborative learning. 2009 is going to be a big year for this issue.
