August Big Question - Feedback

eLearning Cyclops

The Learning Circuits' Big Question for August is to provide feedback on the "Big Question" itself. I have a high opinion of it and have always enjoyed reflecting on the questions posed and reading the responses posted. One of the goals of the Big Question is to "Get different perspectives on topics that are of interest to workplace learning professionals." I feel the Big Question achieves that goal.

LC Big Question: How Do We Keep Up?

Upside Learning

This month’s Big Question on Learning Circuits Blog seeks to understand how we are keeping up with the increasingly complex tools and technologies landscape. I reflect on this question from an organization perspective as opposed to an individual’s perspective. To transfer the knowledge and help develop the skills in the development team, the INP members provide basic training to the team and then create some trial projects to try out.

My response here is not so much an answer to this question, but rather, further musings on this endless topic that Ive been rambling on about of late. There are different types of IDs with different skills required. Perhaps it is a question of scope for IDs?

The Big Questions: Issues and Trends

Clive on Learning

The latest Big Questio n on the ASTD Learning Circuits blog is designed to set the agenda for discussion over the coming months. The question is: What issues and trends do you think are having a major impact on the industry—and should be on the hot list for the blog to tackle? I believe the design of e-learning is a craft skill and that ideally you need to work alongside a master for many years.

Tony Karrer

November's Big Question on the Learning Circuits Blog has been posted. The question this month is: Are ISD / ADDIE / HPT relevant in a world of rapid elearning, faster time-to-performance, and informal learning? To me, this is one of the most important questions facing us today. However, the analytic skills we use to understand how to impact human performance are more valuable today than ever. So, back to the question - are ISD / ADDIE / HPT relevant?

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 tools should we learn?

Clive on Learning

This month’s Big Question on the ASTD Learning Circuits Blog asks what software tools, as learning and development professionals, we should set out to learn. I’ve long maintained that there is an e-learning skills triangle, with learning design at the top (importantly) and technical and creative skills in the bottom corners.

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? So this is an excellent question. It only will be if it has an effect on the learners working skills, making them more effective and productive. So in fact you can ask the same question for formal learning activities.

Can Soft Skills Be Learned?

TalentLMS

Hard skills or soft skills? If, like us, you said, “Hard skills, duh?”, You see, Google actually found that most success in their business is a result of soft skills. Even more surprisingly, hard skills in maths, science, technology, and engineering were ranked dead last – at Google! So, why do we need soft skills? So, human soft skills are fast becoming a critical priority for recruitment decisions. Soft Skills CAN’T be learned.

The Big Question: How do I spend my time?

Clive on Learning

June's Big Question on the Learning Circuits Blog asks a personal question: How much time do you spend and how do you find the time for reading blogs, twitter, social networks, etc.?

Big Question: What new skills and knowledge are required for learning professionals?

Clive on Learning

Challenge to Learn

The question at the Learning circuits blog in May is: How do we need to change in what we do in order to address learning/performance needs that are on-demand? The context of an e-Learning author when creating e-Learning is often the knowledge or skills he needs to transfer. Knowledge and skills are means not goals, the goal is to support the worker and make him more productive. LCBQ e-Learning The big question The future of e-Learning Workplace learning

The Big Question: What is the impact of the economy on your organisation?

Clive on Learning

The Learning Circuits Blog Big Question for February is What is the impact of the economy on you and your organization? Rapid tools are selling well and trainers are more keen than they were to re-skill. Although I generally prefer the roundabout to the big dipper, I'm also aware that necessity is the mother of invention - recessions present many new opportunities and force decisions to be made that would otherwise be postponed.

The Big Question: How do I communicate the value of social media as a learning tool to my organisation?

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?'

We did what we could to help equip supervisors and specialists with the skills needed to make a good job of on-job instruction.

It's what you do deliberately (or what your employer requires you to do) to equip yourself with the knowledge and the skills to carry out tasks in the future.

eLearning Cyclops: The Other Stakeholder Wants It Now Too #LCBQ

eLearning Cyclops

I recently posted my response to the Learning Circuits Big Question (LCBQ). They probably have a more legitimate reason for making this demand simply because they are the people that actually use the knowledge and/or skills the training teaches. Ongoing access to the course and it still is relevant when they take it a year later even when job or skills have changed. Labels: Big Question , Big_Question , e-Learning.

Network Skills

Tony Karrer

I personally believe that one of the areas where learning professionals need the most help is how communities and networks impact learning and building individual and facilitation skills around these: Knowing how to individually leverage Network Skills and Communities to help with work and learning tasks Community and Network Facilitation Skills to help others learn and work using networks and communities In my post Networks and Learning Communities , I looked a bit at this topic.

List to Learn, Learn to List

Kapp Notes

This month's ASTD Big Question is, again, a series of questions. Apparently one BIG question is not enough for the learning and development community. Interesting but most LMSs have assignments or course lists which are assigned to a learner based on a due date (for compliance training) or by a managers so the emplopyee can have necessary skills. What skills, practices, behaviors do modern knowledge workers need around to-learn lists?
