Learning’s Role in Innovation

CLO Magazine

Organizations are facing increasing disruptions, more information is available, and new technologies are making it easier and faster to compete. Provided that learning and development leaders could and should have a central role in innovation, what is the chief learning officer’s responsibility? Steven Johnson, in his 2010 book, “Where Good Ideas Come From,” discusses the role of networks to support innovation, and again the notion of time comes into play.

Tony Karrer

Someone was just asking me about the big trends in learning and the implications of those trends on corporate learning and development. So, here's a bit of a compilation of some of the things I've been talking about in my blog which points to some of the major trends in learning.

Taking Stock and Making Choices: Working from home and other such stuff

ID Reflections

Mostly, business as usual at work and crisis situations at home took my time and attention. Because I love what I do (and I am hugely fortunate in that sense), it’s very easy to let my work consume me and my time. Much has been written about priorities and work life balance — especially for women. To strike a work-life balance, work from home as much as possible (most of the time). This taught me a few things about work, technology and myself.

Seed, feed, & weed

Clark Quinn

In my presentation yesterday, I was talking about how to get informal learning going. The point, however, is from the point of the view of the learner, all the resources needed are ‘to hand’ through every stage of knowledge work. Courses, information resources, people, representational tools, the ability to tap into the 4 C’s (create, contextualize, connect, co-create). People have to know what the goals are and their role.

Formal Learning All the Way.Baby

Kapp Notes

There has been a lot of talk about formal vs. informal learning in the educational blogosphere and when it comes right down to it, formal learning is the most effective.

The processes have been formalized, in knowledge work, many of the processes are formalized. Realistic, formal learning events make a difference.

Future of the training department

Clark Quinn

Things are moving faster, and this has all sorts of consequences: it means that change is occurring more frequently, information is doubling, our competition is more aggressive, and more. In short, we have to move away from depending on formal learning to be able to cope, and we need a new solution. Instead, we need to make sure everyone understands what the overall goal is, and have them work together to achieve it. Who is responsible for ensuring this works?

Workscaping, part 1 of n

Jay Cross

T oday CLO magazine’s Deanne Hartley interviewed me for an upcoming story about micro-learning. People naturally learn in small chunks. On the way home from the Swiss eLearning Conference, my mind was racing after three days of talking with interesting people and spreading the informal learning gospel. Not quite micro-learning, but a step in that direction. In time, the words will migrate into the Working Smarter unbook.

Long Live?

Just got through reading - Long Live Instructor-Led Learning - by Saul Carliner, who is a person I know, like and respect.
