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. A MOOC is an intrinsically participative, collaborative mode of learning.

How to Improve Learning Outcomes With Performance Support

Dashe & Thomson

Given that the goal of instructional designers and training developers is to improve employee performance, it’s surprising that many continue to create blended learning programs with little or no reliance on performance support tools or systems. Fortunately, performance support systems have received more attention in recent years, thanks to a broader trend toward informal learning strategies. Build performance support into every blended learning effort.

3 Ways to Boost Your Learning Habits for a Superior Performance

eFront

The ultimate goal of learning and professional development is to instill the habit of being a “life-long learner” or continuous learning. Life-long learning implies to the cyclic update, reflection, social interchange and again update of knowledge. While some of us unconsciously hunt for new knowledge and revel in “cognitive growth”, most of us need a bit more guidance in terms of achieving learning mindfulness. Does it seem like a lot of work?

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. It has to be integrated into the culture and the organizational way of working and being. Best practices no longer suffice.

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. Take Linux or the GitHub community for example.

THE CHANGING FACE OF WORK AND WORKPLACE LEARNING

Learnnovators

Now that my disclaimers are in place, let me explain the premise of the post title and what I intend to discuss in this post. I am not doing (at least trying not to) today what I did five years back–not only in terms of professional and personal growth but with respect to the demands of the time. Technology has brought about unprecedented changes at a pace that is challenging all notions of flexibility and adaptability. I am not the kind to crystal gaze.

Joitske Hulsebosch eLearning

when it ended, but completely energized and full of new ideas! I followed his advice of doing a pre-conference session with Jef Staes which was one of my highlights. He notices people were looking for practical applications, whereas a conference like this is to challenge your thinking. My thinking was sharpened, but I also took away really practical lessons for the things I am working on (like the idea to embed peergradio in Moodle for instance.)

Yes, you do have to change

Clark Quinn

Of late, I’ve seen a disturbing trend. Not only are the purveyors of existing solutions preaching caution and steadiness, but it even seems like some of the ’names’ of the field are talking in ways that make it easy to think that the industry is largely doing ok. The elearning industry, and the broader learning industry, is severely underperforming the potential (and I’m being diplomatic).

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.

Time for the Training Department to be Taken Seriously

The enterprise content management software market currently exceeds $4B, so it’s quite clear that the vast majority of organizations place strong emphasis on their ECM strategy – a strategy that the training organization unfortunately typically takes no part in.

Thriving in the Net-Work Era

Jay Cross

That led me to an article Harold and I had written on the demise of the training department. The Future of the Training Department. The latter 20th Century was the golden era of the training department. Before the 20th Century, training per se did not exist outside the special needs of the church and the military. Now the training department may be at the end of its life cycle. Factories require groups of people working together.
