Tina Seelig: What I Wish I Knew When I Was 20: A Crash Course on Making Your Place in the World. A 10 Point Reference Check.    We developed ten "reference check"  questions that you can ask people who have worked with and for your prospective boss -- or perhaps had him or her as a client -- to help determine if you are at risk of going to work for an asshole. Downer : “What types of people find it difficult to work with the prospective boss?

Shift in eLearning from Pure Courseware towards Reference Hybrids

Tony Karrer

The shift I'm seeing is away from the design of pure "courseware" solutions and much more to "reference hybrid" solutions. Reference" is static content - meaning no interaction other than allowing the user to link from page-to-page and to search. It is normally a series of web pages, but can be PDF or other document types. Reference sometimes comes out as "job aids" or "online support" or "online help" or various other things.

Exploring passion – what kind of passion do you have?

John Hagel

  Often, reference is made to getting into the flow, in the sense that Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi so compellingly described – becoming fully absorbed in work and losing oneself in the task at hand.   Here is where it is important to pull apart different types of passion.

Sebastian Thrun confuses me: Thoughts on Udacity’s openness project

George Siemens

When Coursera and edX aggressively signed up university partners, he actually contracted Udacity’s university affiliation (dropping Dino 101) to focus on technology only courses. When the media went into a frenzy with the disappointing results of the SJSU pilot , Thrun continued with his “iterate rapidly, learn rapidly” model of course development. What confuses me is the lack of reference to or connection with the existing open education movement.

Why your Enterprise Social Network is your most valuable social learning platform

Using an ESN brings a number of other significant advantages: It means that your thinking about “learning” is not constrained by a dedicated learning platform that perpetuates the traditional course approach.

Defining A Leader’s Duty Of Care

Dan Pontefract

Before going further, I would also like to suggest that employees will depict one of three types of workplace mindsets in their roles; job, career or purpose. Therefore, the leader ought to exhibit what I refer to as a “duty of care” for the purpose mindset to manifest in the employee.

Social as a Weapon of Class Destruction

Dan Pontefract

Ensuring knowledge flow through narration

Harold Jarche

Organizational learning is no longer about courses, which are artifacts of a time when information was scarce and connections were few, because that era is over. Stock is organized for reference and does not change frequently. Courses are stock.

Reactivating Learning

Clark Quinn

I like to think of three types, all different forms of reactivating learning. We’re showing how the concept plays out in a new context, and this gives a greater base upon which to abstract from and comprehend the underlying principle, and providing a new reference that might match a situation they could actually see. It might be as simple as a multiple-choice question, though a scenario in many instances would be better, and a sim/game would of course be outstanding.

Open Education, MOOCs, and Opportunities

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

These systems were modeled on distance education resources such as programmed texts and course workbooks. Online courses were developed according to a protocol that developed over 20 years of experience. In addition to LOM, the consortium designed Content Packaging, to bundle sets of learning objects for storage and delivery, and sequencing and design specifications, to organize them into courses. To support this course an API between gRSShopper and D2L was developed.

Constructivism and Eliminative Materialism

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

We create meaning or sense in these representations by means of a semiotic system - a way of assigning meaning to individual symbols, phrases, groups of symbols, or entire models, sometimes by reference, sometimes by coherence, etc. Of course, animal consciousness is probably very different from human. And, some eliminative materialists working in the fields of cognitive psychology and neuroscience selectively refer to these examples to bolster their case.

The magic question

Clark Quinn

I was reminded of one of the heuristics in a conversation, and had a slightly deeper realization that of course I wanted to share. As I mentioned in the post series, this approach asks what you’d design if you had magic (and referred to the famous Arthur C. A number of years ago, I wrote a paper about design, some of the barriers our cognitive architecture provides, and some heuristics I used to get around them. I wrote a summary of the paper as four posts, starting here.

Learning in the Collaboration Age

Charles Jennings

We cant simply redesign content-rich courses and curricula and hope that changes will occur. This process is (still) generally referred to as knowledge transfer and is both overrated and totally inappropriate for the post-1990 world.

Becoming MOOC

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

There are two types of MOOCs. On the one hand, there is the xMOOC - this is a formal course created in a site like Coursera or EdX. But there''s another type of MOOC, called the cMOOC, which is based on connection rather than content, which looks more like an online community than a course, and doesn''t have a defined curriculum or formal assignments. One major criticism of the cMOOC is based on the free-form nature of the course.

Social Learning doesn’t mean what you think it does: PART TWO

Jane Hart

The traditional approach to measuring learning in the workplace, has been to monitor and track course attendance, or online test and course completions, and report success in quantitative terms – i.e. the number of courses each individual has taken and/or completed.

Ought and Is

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

Experts are typically expert in two types of things: what is the case what ought to be the case And for that matter, we all have attitudes and beliefs regarding both types of statement. And - even more importantly - the references supporting each of these need to be of the right type. For example, the data may say "5 percent of the people finish the course." Nothing about the quality of course design follows from this.

Learning in the Collaboration Age

Charles Jennings

We can’t simply redesign content-rich courses and curricula and hope that changes will occur. This process is (still) generally referred to as ‘knowledge transfer’ and is both overrated and totally inappropriate for the post-1990 world. This type of information is better familiarised.

Alternate Pedagogies and Experiences

Clark Quinn

We took that approach when we developed a course on speaking to the media (which had some other innovations too) back around 1997. By showing the learner the type of problem this learning experience will help you address, you build in the emotional side.

iWitness Aims to Aggregate News By Time and Place

Adaptive Path

iWitness is a Web-based software tool that will enable individuals and news organizations to aggregate and cross-reference news events with user-generated online content related by time and place. If you know when and where something happened, iWitness will show you first-person photos, videos, and messages from people who were there, integrating diverse media types in a unified interface. Let's face it: The great promise of citizen media has not really been fulfilled.

Conspiracy theories as maladaptive coping

Mind Hacks

Of course polling about individual beliefs must underestimate the proportion of individuals who subscribe to at least one conspiracy theory. Reference: Douglas, K., A review called ‘ The Psychology of Conspiracy Theories ‘ sets out a theory of why individuals end up believing Elvis is alive, NASA faked the moon landings or 9/11 was an inside job.

Presentation to UNCTAD's Advisory Group on "Developing skills, knowledge and capacities through innovation: E-Learning, M-Learning, cloud-Learning"

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

We''ve discovered in recent offerings of online courses, people started out enthusiastically, but are unable to finish the course because they''ve run out of time. This is something that does not come from the online course, or even the online environment. Learning looks at the online course, as a course. What I mean by that is the traditional college/university course. learning in many respects begins as a set of course tools for web support.

Authenticity in Cynefin

Dave Snowden

We can also look at different types of action, the recognition and use of constraints and even the wider understanding of context. I proposed a course on Existentialism focusing on Sartre, Campus with side references to Kierkegaard and Heidegger.
