Clark Quinn

I wrote an article for Jane Hart’s Modern Workplace Learning magazine, triggered by my thought that in her tools survey, I didn’t see a lot about a certain set of reflection (c.f. last weeks posts on diagramming) and experimentation tools: meta-learning tools.

Types and proportions of learning activities?

Clark Quinn

This kind of is an inverse of the tools and outputs I see. I’ve been on quite the roll of late, calling out some bad practices and calling for learning science.
