Tony Karrer

Knowledge Management Core Issues

Tony Karrer

Great post by Denham Grey - Perennial KM issues that are very similar to the core problems that we deal with in eLearning: How to speed learning, increase awareness and share experiences. With an ever deceasing half-life of knowledge , just keeping up has become a major corporate imperative. We need practical ways to build personal informal networks. Open space methods, creating forums and 'Ba' for trusted exchanges, blogging and informal wikis may help.

Learning, KM vs. SM, Information, Web 2.0, and Second Life

Acquistion vs learning - Doing Something Different. Two British researchers have just completed a study of undergraduate students that found "many young students are far from being the epitomic global, connected, socially-networked technologically-fluent digital native who has little patience for passive and linear forms of learning."

8 Dirty Words

Jay Cross's Informal Learning

L ast year I led workshops in London, Madrid , San Jose, Quebec, and Berlin on how to sell social networking and informal learning to senior management. Here we go: Learning is a dirty word because executive managers have a hard time hearing it. You think of improving skills and increasing knowledge. Learning taints the conversation. I changed the name of my new book from Informal Learning in the Cloud to Working Smarter.

Gurteen Knowledge Letter celebrates 10th birthday

Jay Cross's Informal Learning

David Gurteen has written his “Knowledge Letter&# every month for the last ten years. I’ve followed David’s adventures in Knowledge Management for years. David’s site also provides reviews of KM books, biographies of thought leaders, and more. It’s my primary KM reference site. David has been a major influence on my views of knowledge management.

Reflections from Aachen

Jay Cross's Informal Learning

I spent the last three days participating on an international panel convened by the Center for Learning and Knowledge Management (ZLW) at the RWTH Aachen University to foster workplace and knowledge innovation with the Maas-Rhein Region. I learned a whale of a lot, so I expect to be dribbling out ah-ha moments as they come to me over the next few days. Informal doesn’t mean random or wanton or without purpose.

Posts that Influenced Me in 2009

ID Reflections

The posts that came to mind spontaneously and with surprising clarity ( in no particular order and not necessarily e-learning related) : 1. Understanding Homophily on the Web (Bamboo Project: this blog was also my discovery of 2009) What did I learn: The Internet encourages the coming together of like minds. Only through sharing of stories and experiences, the larger pattern and the connections emerge, the information becomes knowledge that we can then effectively use.

The differences between learning in an e-business and learning in a social business

Jane Hart

In my recent webinar I shared a slide that showed the 5 stages of workplace learning. This has attracted a lot of interest, and I’ve been asked to talk more about the differences between “learning” in Stages 1-4 and Stage 5. Working and learning in Stages 1-4 is based upon a Taylorist , industrial age mindset. Similarly e-learning was also about automating traditional training practices. LEARNING IN AN E-BUSINESS. LEARNING IN A SOCIAL BUSINESS. Learning.

Informal learning—such as learning from peers and colleagues (including OJT), learning by trial and error, and individual reading and research in order to be able to perform better—are important aspects of on-going development (Stehlik et al. According to the Australian Bureau of Statistics, informal learning is by far the most prevalent form of adult learning. Do we actively manage it? Learning Cafe Blogs. Learning [.].

Next Gen L&D Professional Development Framework

Most learning delivery goals are usually driven by budgets, taking very little consideration of the more important aspects like Learner time and Learner cognitive bandwidth that focus more around the Learner. Learners are seldom dumped with heaps of Learning content making it challenging for them to grasp and embed the 70 : 20 from it. Another interesting constraint being Knowledge half life that renders Learning content to be obsolete after a certain point of time.

Workplace Learning Professionals Next Job - Management Consultant

Tony Karrer

The Big Question this month is Workplace Learning in 10 Years : If you peer inside an organization in 10 years time and you look at how workplace learning is being supported by that organization, what will you see? What will the mix of Push vs. Pull Learning; Formal vs. Informal supported by the organization? What new departments will be responsible for parts of workplace learning? Isn't that the definition of management. It will be part of management.

Social Media Goals

Clark Quinn

Mzinga is clearly targeted at the learning space, being integrated with an LMS. Vignette , on the other hand, started as a CMS for KM, but then added social media around it. Vignette’s story about building on their core content management system supporting knowledge management makes sense from the point of view of mining value out of the discussions. Yet, for a learning group, Mzinga’s integration of formal and informal learning is also plausible.

Online Coaching

Tony Karrer

Catherine Lombardozzi recent post Coaching informal learning sparked something for me around online coaching opportunities. In prior posts she identifies the following elements as being needed for informal learning strategy to be effective in the workplace: Motivation for learning. I completely agree with Catherine that we need to be thinking about how learners can get support for dealing with the complexities of informal learning.
