Can PeopleCloud support learning in all its contexts?

Clive on Learning

My argument was that well-designed formal interventions can extend beyond the confines of the course to include elements that would normally be regarded as 70 or 20 in the 70:20:10 model or experiential , on-demand or non-formal in the model I present in The New Learning Architect. Learning professionals have no real difficulty in supporting the formal element of their work, i.e. providing access to courses.

Performance Support Second?

Clark Quinn

Once we’ve determined that social isn’t a solution to meeting the need, why wouldn’t we think of a course first? But also, unless we absolutely need a course, we should look to performance support next.

First, let me say that a community of practice could be, and should be, a community of improvement. One of the principles of practice is reflection and improvement.
