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.

I am trying to move to a mode where I'll write shorter posts more regularly on specific topics, questions posed to me, or an aspect of modern workplace learning that interests me.

Jane Hart

Harold Jarche, in his recent post, Supporting workplace learning , uses a great little diagram to show that -. “It takes much more than courses delivered through a learning management system to support workplace learning in the network era.” However, they need access to their learning networks while at work, and this is often a challenge. Reduce these barriers, and support PKM practices, and the organization will benefit.” Social learning

Social Learning Cannot be a Bolt-On Strategy

Working out Loud and Serendipity

All of this made me think I should write a post on working out loud and its place in workplace learning. As is my wont, I tend to look at everything mostly through my L&D lens, especially when it comes to learning and sharing at the workplace. In my mind, working out loud can be one of the means to strengthen organizational learning. Such sharing can trigger serendipity and meaningful conversation -- two of the critical factors that can shape organizational learning.
