Learning and KM: Separated at birth?

Jay Cross

T wo years ago, DevLearn and KM World took place simultaneously in downtown San Jose. KM World 2009 is next week. Looking through the program, I’m delighted to see that many of the sessions could easily play at DevLearn and vice-versa. I’ll be in Hope, Arkansas; Washington, DC; and Barcelona during KM World this year, so I’ll miss the show. Corporate learning and KM are both about getting the job done. I wonder if many KM fans will join us.

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. Although the advent of e-technology in the late 1990s changed businesses into e-businesses, this was essentially about automating existing business thinking and practices. Mix of face-to-face/. Primary model of learning: instructional.

LearnTrends: Backchannel

Jay Cross

The back channel becomes part of the overall message. Moderator (Harold Jarche): traditional training & education has driven much of our self-direction and creativity out of us - need to relearn. Moderator (Clark Quinn): we're the people who've retained our love of learning despite our education. kelly_smith01: Reminds me a bit of Rummler. Jenna Papakalos: Communities of practice belong to training. KM, TM, etc.
