MOOCs In Workplace Learning – Part 2: Designing a MOOC

Learnnovators

@ ignatia (Inge de Waard) describes MOOCs thus in her Master’s Thesis: “MOOC is above all referring to a pedagogical model with independent learners, access to information, opportunity to create emerging, spontaneous, yet not directed learning communities, etcetera. Corporate Learning will be transformed and will take on more importance wrote Josh Bersin in his HR predictions for 2015. There is an urgent need to re-imagine workplace learning for the networked world.

I Believe in the Importance of a Personal Learning Network

Tom Spiglanin

When I started using Twitter for my professional growth and development, I didn’t realize that I was also starting to build my personal learning network. I simply found myself tweeting at a learning and development conference using its hashtag and others began connecting with me. I hadn’t yet recognized the value of connectedness , but knew immediately that I was learning from each of these encounters. I even gave it my own name: “On-fire learning.”

I Believe in the Value of Connectedness

Tom Spiglanin

While every organization in the world is unique, most have characteristics in common. All employees are ultimately connected to one another through a common purpose to succeed and fulfill the mission of the organization. Sharing a common purpose and vision may be the most basic element of connectedness for employees, but it’s very loose and at a high-level. High performing individuals commonly enjoy even higher levels of connectedness within the organization.

I Believe in the Many Emerging Roles for Learning and Development Professionals

Tom Spiglanin

The 70:20:10 framework helps to put the work of learning and development (L&D) organizations into perspective within the whole of employee learning ( previous article ). That leaves the question of what, if anything, should L&D do to facilitate the over 90% of learning that takes place outside of its traditional role. For just as long, employees have also been learning experientially and socially, without the help of a training organization.

I Believe in the Inverse Relationship Between Experience and the Value of Formal Learning

Tom Spiglanin

If Learning and Development organizations (or anyone, for that matter) are going to facilitate learning in the changing workplace, it’s vitally important to understand how employees actually learn. To be clear, I’m not talking about learning styles or preferences, nor am I making assumptions about attention spans or preferences for the format of information. ” moment came during a conference session on mobile learning led by Clark Quinn.

Revisiting 70:20:10

Tom Spiglanin

This past week there was an impromptu Twitter discussion about the “70:20:10” notion of learning in the workplace, where about 70 percent of workplace learning is experiential (basically doing the work), about 20 percent is learning from others, and just 10 percent is from training or other formal learning intervention. Others claim that L&D too often responds to performance needs with courses of one form or another.

Learning and the Changing Workplace – Part 3

Tom Spiglanin

In part 1 of this series , I wrote how the field of Learning and Development* (L&D) hasn’t really changed much over the last decade, despite substantial changes in the workplace. When an organization’s data, information, platforms, and services are housed in the cloud and outside the corporate firewall, employees have more facile access to their information and will be more free to work at times and places of their choosing.

Small Changes Make a Difference

Tom Spiglanin

In my previous post, I mentioned how my role in workplace learning and development (L&D) had fundamentally changed this past year. My optimism ultimately derives from several sources, most profoundly my personal learning network of colleagues around the world. Should we consider a performance support alternative? Training isn’t learning. Learning is always a verb. Simply calling our programs, “learning programs” does not accomplish this.

Three Ways to Speed Up Instructional Design

Mindflash

Consider research conducted by ASTD that suggests it takes about 45 hours of development time to create one hour of classroom training (and it’s even longer for e-learning initiatives). Simple: Re-consider how we design learning. As we write in the book , instructional designers need to start with the premise that the learning programs they create are never finished. Let Learners Create Their Own Learning. Our skill is designing learning, not deciding learning.
