From Learning Management to Personal Knowledge Management

Jane Hart

But in fact it has been clear for some time that many individuals are already taking responsibility for not only acquiring new knowledge and skills but for a wide range of activities for their continuous learning and professional development. Acquiring new knowledge and skills – e.g. in webinars, online workshops, MOOCs, and through videos and screencasts, etc. Here’s a short presentation by Harold Jarche that explains PKM and his Seek-Sense-Share PKM framework.

Are you supporting new fashioned learning in the workplace?

Jane Hart

But let’s be clear, even when newer social and informal approaches are added to this old model that let you learn things a little differently, if your learning experience has in any way been organized (and/or managed) by someone else , this is still “old fashioned” learning.

New domains of knowledge are appearing which have yet to be structured and organized.

Social Learning Cannot Be A Bolt-On Strategy

Social Business means that every department, from HR to marketing to product development to customer service to sales, uses social media the way it uses any other tool and channel to do its job.

In many other subjects, term papers were effectively show-your-work products that described a train of thought, taking the reader from preliminary premises to the conclusion. Those who continued onto graduate work had at least one significant show-your-work product: a dissertation or thesis.

"The nature of work is changing.

Working out Loud and Serendipity

Thus, w orking out loud is intrinsically linked to two critical aspects of becoming a good learner -- Personal knowledge Management (PKM) and building one''s Personal Learning Network (PLN). As an L&D person, if we can inspire and motivate everyone to share one little piece everyday--be it a method for project execution or an insight gathered from the day, over a period of time this can build up to be an immensely rich repository of knowledge and tacit experiences.
