MOOCs in Workplace Learning – Part 5: Skills Learners Need Today

Learnnovators

While the title of the post specifies MOOCs, the skills and mindsets I have explored in the post are, IMHO, required by all to survive and thrive in the digital and connected world. And participating in MOOCs could well be one of the ways to inculcate and hone the skills. I have been writing about MOOCs in the context of workplace learning from different perspectives for some time now. MOOCs in Workplace Learning – Part 2: Designing a MOOC.

7 Strategies to Facilitate “Working Out Loud”

Learnnovators

I spent the greater part of the weekend mulling over the practice of working out loud, what makes some folks adopt the habit with ease while others struggle, and what could be some of the possible enabling factors that support working out loud. The more I thought about it, the more it seemed to me that it is one of the fundamental blocks of building a community of practice. Explicit and tacit knowledge gets shared.

Quotes and excerpts on the need for Learning 2.0 from the Best of T+D: 2007-2009

ID Reflections

Excerpts from the Best of T+D | 2007 - 2009 Harold Jarche in Skills 2.0 : As knowledge workers, we are like actors--only as good as our last performance. Professionals are anyone who does work that cannot be standardized easily and who continuously welcomes challenges at the cutting edge of his or her expertise. In a flattened learning system, there are fewer experts and more fellow learners on paths that may cross. David Wilkins in Learning 2.0

12 features of supporting social collaboration in the workplace

Jane Hart

I am often asked how to support social collaboration in the workplace. As I showed in my recent blog post , there are some big differences between learning in an e-business and learning in a social/collaborative business. So it is not just about adding new social approaches or social media into the training “blend”, s upporting social collaboration is underpinned not only by new technologies but by a new mindset.

Building a Performance Ecosystem

CLO Magazine

By combining the power of the human brain with technology in a way that facilitates work, collaboration and communication, leaders can turn learning into multifaceted performance support. Things are moving faster, and organizations have to be more nimble, responding to changes in their audiences, competitors and the context of work. Survival requires continual innovation, and at the core is learning faster than everyone else.

Integrating Social Learning In The Workplace

Learnnovators

I have been writing about social learning and its related concepts – communities of practices , working out loud and skills for the networked world for quite some time now. Social learning has become a buzzword in the workplace learning space, and every other organization is claiming to have “social learning” as a part of the mix. The catch is that “social learning” cannot just be implemented or enforced.

Contest - Win a Free Copy of Digital Habitats via LearnTrends 2009

Tony Karrer

Nancy has been my go to person for all things Communities and Networks and worked with me to create Communities and Networks Connection. So naturally when Nancy and John (with Etienne Wenger) put out the book Digital Habitats; Stewarding Technology for Communities I was very excited. And while I know they all have a deep understanding of CoPs I tend to ask Etienne the theory questions, Nancy the technology questions and John the group dynamics questions.

Re-imagining Work & Learning in a Networked World

ID Reflections

"The nature of work is changing. The changes to society will be vast" by @gapingvoid We are on the eve of 2015! Most of us do a retrospection of the year gone by, and a future-spection of the year to come. I thought I''d do the same from an L&D and workplace learning perspective. The latter talks about the impact that the changing nature of technology is having on us. This has wide-ranging implication on learning and the future of work.

The differences between learning in an e-business and learning in a social business

Jane Hart

In my recent webinar I shared a slide that showed the 5 stages of workplace learning. This has attracted a lot of interest, and I’ve been asked to talk more about the differences between “learning” in Stages 1-4 and Stage 5. Working and learning in Stages 1-4 is based upon a Taylorist , industrial age mindset. Similarly e-learning was also about automating traditional training practices. LEARNING IN AN E-BUSINESS.

Applications in Learning. I discussed a bit of these issues in First Thoughts After ASTD Sessions. I'm writing this post for both attendees of the session to have some notes and for people who were not at the session to hopefully get value from the discussion that happened there.
