Re-thinking Workplace Learning: extracting rather than adding

Charles Jennings

One clear finding presented was that: “t hose activities that are integrated into manager and employee workflow have the largest impact on employee performance, while those that are distinct events separate from the day-to-day job have less impact.”

Building a Culture of Continuous Learning

In a recent webinar I discussed some very interesting data from the Corporate Leadership Council’s ‘Training Effectiveness Dashboard’ study with participants. By supporting learning within the workflow, and through and with others, the culture of learning will evolve – I’ve seen it happen

The Knowledge and Learning Transfer Problem

We can share information in the form of data and our own insights. 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.

I don’t want this post to be a criticism of an individual survey design, but I do think that the designers of data-gathering surveys such as these need to think about the terminology they use carefully. The results of yet another 70:20:10 survey were published recently.

Extending Learning into the Workflow Many Learning & Development leaders are using the 70:20:10 model to help them re-position their focus for building and supporting performance across their organisations. They are finding it helps them extend the focus on learning out into the workflow.

Workflow The next step in the use of badges is to develop a mechanism for awarding them. This is something that can generate a lot of labour in a hurry (9 modules times 10 people means 90 badges issued.). Right now all I have to do is type in the module and then click 'Publish'.

The Only Person Who Behaves Sensibly Is My Tailor

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. Attending a course or completing an eLearning module tells us little apart from the fact that some activity occurred.

Managing Learning?

Keeping the CEO out of Jail In his article Donald quotes Andy Wooler, Academy Technology Manager at Hitachi Data Systems Academy, as saying: “LMS too often stands for Litigation Mitigation Service.” Donald Taylor recently published an article titled ‘ What does ‘LMS’ mean today ?’.

The Best of Times, The Worst of Times: opportunities and challenges for the L&D profession

All-in-all the implication for L&D professionals has been to make their traditional offerings of carefully designed, time-consuming and often slowly developed structured modules, courses and programmes relevant to fewer and fewer stakeholder needs.

Frustrated With Drupal

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

I got to explore, for example, the Drupal Actions and Workflow modules. And with workflow, the only documentation I could find was a video. Anyhow, after spending several hours figuring our how to make the workflow work, and to send an email message, I run into another problem: how to send an HTML message. Try the Send Module , which in turn requires the MimeMail Module. I cannot use these modules to send anything.

Especially if they can gain that knowledge and expertise more easily and without leaving their desk or workflow. I recall using one enterprise LMS that required 13 clicks of a mouse (some counter-intuitive) to register and launch an eLearning module.

Real learning – let’s not confuse it with completing templated exercises

Learning professionals spend a significant amount of their time (maybe even the majority) designing and delivering content and then evaluating completions and short-term memory outputs from structured mandatory and compliance training modules and courses.

The purpose of the platform is to create LPSS services to interact with existing third-party services, including advanced algorithms and modules developed in other NRC programs.

But an LMS can be like a community, where every member is a teacher and learner, where connected activities use different strategies to gather and reuse data, integrated with the rest of the Internet, whe assessment takes place continuously in a number of ways. progressive: communication based pedagogies, comment developed modules, drag and drop UIs, mobile platfors, innovative workflows, integration media, etc. They log in as you, scrape the web pages, and munge the data.

Wikipedia is using external, public data sets. In short, it is using the web of data as a CMS. More and more data is on the web, and more and more applications rely on that data. We need the infrastructre for a web of data, so data can be interlinked and integrated on the web, so we can start making queries on the whole, not just specific databases. We could export this data as a set of relations. Thus we can develop a workflow ontology in OWL.
