Part of the learning leader’s job is to develop organizational learning strategies. For one thing, organizations aren’t reviewing their learning and development strategies very often.

Demystifying Working Out Loud

Learnnovators

In this post, I want to demystify working out loud and highlight the organizational as well as personal growth that accrues from the practice. It has helped me to develop my personal learning network (PLN) and enabled my PKM. It is perfectly possible to share one’s experience over a “lunch & learn” session; however, if that session can also be aired on Hangout, the impact is amplified tenfold. What are some of the compelling reasons that will make me do so?

Deeper eLearning Design: Part 1 – The Starting Point: Good Objectives

Learnnovators

The goal of this series is to build upon good implementations of instructional design, and go deeper into the nuances of what makes learning that really works. For a learning experience design to be truly effective, it has to have a focus. That focus is the outcome that the learning experience is designed to achieve. So, the starting point of a learning design has to be the objective that will achieve the outcome. With a clear goal, we can know how to get there.

A Framework For Content Curation

I should know: I’ve used them as a student, I’ve seen my peers create them, and I’ve created them myself. As learning in the workplace inevitably informalises, the motivation of employees to drive their own development becomes increasingly pivotal to their performance. Essentially this means putting the topic into context for them, clarifying how it relates to their role, and explaining why they should bother learning it.

Community of Practice and the TorranceLearning Download

The Performance Improvement Blog

One of many methods of organizational learning is a “community of practice”. This is a term coined by Etienne Wenger to describe “…groups of people who share a concern or a passion for something they do and learn how to do it better as they interact regularly.” The Download is a time and place for people to come together to share experiences and ideas, with the intention of everyone learning something new. .

What NOT to do in L&D

SMEs do have access to what they know , so that tends to be what they will focus on.

The Future of Work and Learning

It’s fun but risky to speculate about the future of work and learning. It’s hard to know what will happen next week, let alone 10 years from now.

Creating avenues for On-Demand Learning in the Modern Workplace

G-Cube

Learning at the workplace is a continuous process. While formal training also has a place, more and more organizations are aligning towards informal ways of organizational learning. On-Demand Learning is a type of informal learning that is ‘learner-led’ – where the learner moves along the course material, undirected and self-paced. Also, corporate learners are more aware of what their learning needs are and can evaluate their strengths and weaknesses well.

The probability of wasting money

Clark Quinn

Designing learning is a probability game. To paraphrase Dorothy Parker, you can lead a learner to learning, but you can’t make them think. What I mean is that the likelihood that the learning actually sticks is a result of a myriad of design decisions, and many elements contribute to that likelihood. This is the point of learning engineering, applying learning science to the design of learning experiences.
