Learning with e's

I'm at Colchester Institute on Friday to present a workshop entitled: Communities, Spaces and Pedagogies for the Digital Age.

Jane Hart

In my previous blog post I explained how I recognized it is difficult for a lot of organisations to support informal and social learning in their organisations, because they are unable to jump the two mindset hurdles of (a) thinking that learning only happens in training courses, and (b) that all organisational learning needs to be controlled by Training/L&D departments.

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.

What Do You Mean By Social Learning?

CLO Magazine

What types of images does the phrase “social learning&# conjure up for you? Is it an ideal picture of a cross-collaborative office environment? Or is it an online community of practice where everyone is free to ask any question? In a report published in 2010 in the journal Ecology and Society titled “What Is Social Learning?&# Reed and ten co-authors concluded that there is little consensus over the meaning of the term social learning.

It has been a wild week from the acquisition of Saba by Cornerstone to the ability to compare systems in detail on FindAnLMS, to the Coronavirus and the usage of Microsoft Teams as part of the L&D experience. A lot of readers and folks on various social media have asked about my perspective on a variety of areas, so without further adieu. It is quite common for folks to do handshakes, hugs at the show, both of which would have to be stopped.

The Importance of Learning Technologies

CLO Magazine

Technology is essential to run learning like a business. Here the first learning technology an organization needs is a good learning management system (LMS). I am still surprised by the number of organizations without one or with systems that fall far short of meeting their needs. The portal may be part of an organization-wide effort to provide access to all HR services and company information through one home page.

In other words, we enable digital and physical learning spaces in which they can freely explore ideas, argue with each other (and us) over concepts and theories and in so doing, develop their reasoning and thinking skills. Too much bad theory has crept into the classroom in recent years, as I have previously commented , and we want to ensure that our trainee teachers are aware of flaws, counter-arguments and alternatives to all theories. education social media learning

Evolution of E-Learning

The Learning Circuits

I think the whole e-learning space has gone through an evolution in the last 4-5 years, and we've created a four-stage taxonomy to describe it ( www.bersin.com/stages ). In stage 1 ( Getting Started ) organizations adopt e-learning to save money. And yes, e-learning does reduce the cost per delivery of instructional hour. But we now have data to prove that in reality e-learning does not save money, it increase reach and range. I feel a need to chime in.

CLO Magazine

But how will MOOCs influence corporate learning? Massive open online courses, or MOOCs, are a hot topic in education and learning. Since bursting onto the scene a few years ago, the medium allowing anyone to take high-quality online courses for free has called into question the viability of traditional higher education. To date, most developments in the traditional MOOC space have been in academia. What’s to Learn? CorpU calls this connected learning.
