The event organizers, the Centre for Accounting, Governance, and Sustainability and the Institute of Chartered Accountants Australia , have now released a book The Virtual University: Impact on Australian Accounting and Business Education based on the conference proceedings. The opening chapter in the book was generated from a transcript of my keynote. This context specific module is acquired just as we need it, ‘just in time’.

The Knowledge and Learning Transfer Problem

Charles Jennings

from our 702010 towards 100% performance book) If learning is embedded in the daily flow of work, rather than away from the workflow, the idea that we need to develop ways to ‘transfer’ that learning into practical use disappears. Especially as most organisations have an often large and continuing investment in formal training and development, the vast majority of which is carried out away from the workflow.

This article draws on ideas and supporting material from a new book published for the first time in English last week. BUY THE BOOK: www.702010institute.com The book is divided into 100 numbered sections across 313 pages in ‘coffee table’ format. 12 page bibliography with a wealth of references to supporting papers, books, articles, case studies and other material. They are finding it helps them extend the focus on learning out into the workflow.

It’s Only 65% !

Charles Jennings

" Jay wrote the seminal book on Informal Learning. The numbers are a useful reminder that the majority of learning occurs through experience and practice within the workflow (the ‘70’), through sharing and supporting others, conversations and networks (the ‘20’), and that a smaller amount of overall learning occurs through structured training and development activities (the ‘10’). The results of yet another 70:20:10 survey were published recently.

Managing Learning?

Charles Jennings

The management modules of Systems such as PLATO (arguably the first LMS) the Computer Assisted Instruction system which was developed at the University of Illinois in 1960 (and finally shut down in 2006), were developed to support automated teaching operations (the ‘ATO’ part of the name) in a world where standardisation and automation were the primary goal. Donald Taylor recently published an article titled ‘ What does ‘LMS’ mean today ?’.

Shaw and Work-Based Learning I recently came across Shaw’s quote about sensibility and his tailor again in Joseph Raelin’s book ‘ Work-Based Learning: Bridging Knowledge and Action in the Workplace ’. We measure how many people have attended a class or completed an eLearning module, or read a document or engaged in a job swap or in a coaching relationship.

Obviously, I wrote a book about this , but some of the quick things I do include: embed the decisions they should be making in contexts where they make sense. In making the Workplace of the Future project with Learnnovators, we were barreling along full tilt, working on the second module, and I was getting increasingly worried about the fact that we hadn’t tested the first. Listening, as I mentioned, in this case to Guy Wallace.

Example: book. Combine the 'person' metadata from the book with other sources, such as Wikipedia data ( dbpedia.org ). Thus we can develop a workflow ontology in OWL. So ontology modules can be efficiently interchanged. You can get different perspectives to a module. The knowledge base of the 'utilizer' modules are augmented by sets of nominals from 'realizer' modules. Diagram of 'requirements' module). These are defined by other modules.
