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.

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.

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.

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.

Supporting self-managed team learning in the organisation

Jane Hart

This is a post in a series that I am writing about how the future role of L&D is moving from “packaging learning” to “scaffolding learning”. In the first post I explained that “packaging learning” involves organizing and wrapping up everything an individual needs to learn in a neat parcel, delivering it to them on a plate, and making sure they do it, whilst “scaffolding” is about supporting learning in many other less top-down organized ways.

Creating a Culture for Learning

The Performance Improvement Blog

Following is an excerpt from our new book, Minds at Work: Managing for Success in the Knowledge Economy (Chapter Seven). The culture that underpins a managing minds approach must support and encourage an ongoing and collective discovery, sharing, and appli­cation of knowledge and skills at the individual, team, and organization levels. So how do you really know if you have a company that is manag­ing minds? Learning is aligned with results.

Workplace Learning in a World “Beyond Automation”

Learnnovators

With automation, AI and robots looming over the job scene, there seems to be a constant fear of humans losing out to computers and technology. It’s akin to one of our childhood sci-fi movies finally becoming a reality – the machines are taking over. The digital disruptors in the shape of Robots, Big Data and Sensors are here. However, this HBR article takes a different view of automation and digitization of work, going beyond the gloom and doom 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.

Time for the Training Department to be Taken Seriously

Xyleme

Today, I’m going to talk about learning content management (ECM) and enterprise content management (LCM). 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. But this blog post isn’t about why learning needs to engage with the enterprise.
