Integrating Social Learning in the Workplace

ID Reflections

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.

Jane Hart

During social learning month I am writing some weekly articles with some key resources about social learning.

He first explains that “social learning&# is. &#. not only about learning from others, but about continuously learning from others at the time of need to get the job done.”.

Social Learning: An Ongoing Experiment

CLO Magazine

Psychologist Albert Bandura’s social learning theory suggests that people learn from one another through observation, imitation and modeling. In a famous series of experiments to demonstrate his theory, Bandura studied children’s behavior after they watched a human adult model act aggressively toward a Bobo doll — a toy with a rounded bottom that returns to an upright position after it has been knocked down.

Measurement & ROI for Social & Network Learning

Experiencing eLearning

These are my notes from the Learn Trends: Networked and Social Learning online mini-conference. This isn’t my usual comprehensive live blogging, just snippets of things that caught my interest. I wanted to actually participate in the chat and watch Twitter too, and I couldn’t juggle all of it at the same time. This is post 2 of 3. Measurement & ROI for Social & Network Learning. How are you measuring social learning?

7 Strategies to Facilitate "Working Out Loud"

ID Reflections

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.

Workplace Learning in a World "Beyond Automation"

However, this HBR article takes a different view of automation and digitization of work, going beyond the gloom and doom mindset.

Social, Informal Learning Can Be ?Measured

CLO Magazine

Key performance indicators for social and informal learning identify knowledge hubs and lead to better results. Just as social learning and technology have modernized the way learning occurs in companies today, they also have made a mark on the key performance indicators learning leaders should capture and measure. Where the changes show up is in the data points companies analyze in conjunction with social and informal learning.

Through the Workscape Looking Glass

Jay Cross

It’s the biggest frame of the big picture. Learning Ecosystem, Learning Ecology, and Learnscape mean the same thing as Workscape. I don’t use the word learn with executives, who inevitably think back to the awfulness of school and close their ears. The Workscape is a systems-eye view of the workplace. In the same vein, I talk about Working Smarter instead of informal learning, social learning, and so forth. Action learning.

Q: How does Accenture implement this type of design?

Success Formula for Discussion Forums in Financial Services

Tony Karrer

I received a question this week related to Discussion Forums for Knowledge Sharing at Capital City Bank : I successfully launched a discussion forum for a small group of lending assistants within my bank. I’ve used examples from the lending assistants as well as other benefits of the tool to demonstrate how its use would benefit the bank and these work groups. They see the benefit of the tool in a strict learning environment, but have difficulty seeing its use in an expanded role.

Strategies and Tips for CLOs to Measure and Maximize the Impact of Training and Development Programs

Majority of the trainings get delivered as planned, and are normally tracked for registrations, completions, timely completions, and assessment scores.

The 70-20-10 model for professional development is a valuable but dated approach in need of a checkup.

Many of these, such as the Kirkpatrick evaluation levels, carrot and stick motivational programs and the ADDIE model have been around since the 1960s. The world of mobile and social learning and Google, however, requires new measures.
