Joitske Hulsebosch eLearning

Keeping the Wheels Turning: The Dynamics of Managing Networks of Practice. Journal of Management Studies, 47(1), 85-108 The authors make a distinction between NoPs and CoPs; networks of practice and communities of practice.

Crowd source your corporate knowledge

Challenge to Learn

I’m investigating crowd sourcing of corporate knowledge. Over the past few weeks I have spoken to dozens of training managers all over the world. The visionary Learning manager really believes that crowd sourcing or user generated content is the way to go.

But imparting knowledge by a mentor is an age-old method, traced back to the 19th century. Even, schools and colleges prefer a unified and standardized online training platform for passing on the knowledge.

Employees who speak the local language can best relate to them. Localize.

Social media does not always equal social learning

Connect Thinking

These communities, where people care enough about each other to respond online, build upon conversation and even co-create, can be very powerful for organisational learning and knowledge management.

Re-imagining Work & Learning in a Networked World

ID Reflections

Over the next two decades we can expect the knowledge of the world to be digitalised, with an exponential rise in user-generated content, "wise-crowd" application and open innovation applications."

CLO Magazine

To broaden cultural intelligence across a global organization, build a knowledge management system that can gather, house and disseminate it.
