Online social networks facilitate connections between people based on shared interests, values, membership in particular groups (i.e., They make it easier for people to find and communicate with individuals who are in their networks using the Web as the interface. Note you can learn more about the concept of ego-centric vs object-centric networks here ). It is also the network of choice for most professionals.

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

Jane Hart

In the workplace, social learning comes through social collaboration. Social learning is a natural everyday phenomenon; simply put, we learn from our colleagues as we work with them. It is not just about managing the interaction but also being part of the social interaction.

Blog Post: Why are so few KM events done over the web?

David Gurteen

By David Gurteen A month or so back Matthew Loxton started a discussion on the Gurteen Knowledge Community Group on Linkedin by asking the question "Why are so few KM events done over the web". Hi - As probably the person that has conducted more face-to-face KM events, over the last three decades, than all others combined, arrival at the definitive answer to this question is easy. These are creative activities like design, relationships, strategy, etc.

Learning in 2024 #LRN2024

Clark Quinn

While I couldn’t participate in the twitter chat they held, I optimistically weighed in: “learning in 2024 will look like individualized personal mentoring via augmented reality, AI, and the network” However, I thought I would elaborate in line with a series of followup posts leveraging the #lrn2024 hashtag. I reckon the learner has seen a significant move to more elearning instead of an almost complete dependence on face-to-face events.

Facilitating Innovation

Clark Quinn

While there are resources about learning design, performance support design, social networking, and more, there’s less guidance about facilitating innovation. In previous work, I looked at models of innovation, and found that either you mutated an existing design, or meld two designs together. Innovation isn’t an event, it’s a process, and it’s something that I want P&D (Learning & Development 2.0 :) to be supporting.

Social Media for Trainers (by Jane Bozarth)

Clark Quinn

Jane Bozarth’s Social Media for Trainers is a wonderfully handy, and important, book. It succinctly introduces why you would want to think about social media to augment training, introduces several of the major social media tools that represent categorical differences, and, for each, focuses on practical explanations about the tools, pluses and minuses, and classic ways to use them before, during, and after learning events.

Learning malpractice

Clark Quinn

Consequently, the ‘massed practice’ of the learning *event* is a broken model! Worse, courses are designed in lieu of any cognizance of the resources. And while informal learning, as facilitated by search and social networks, may not be actively discouraged, the lack of any cohesive effort to coordinate the network, let alone aligning with resources and formal learning, characterizes the average workplace.

Slow Learning – #change11

Clark Quinn

It’s part of what my colleague Harold Jarche talks about when saying “work is learning and learning is work”, the notion that as organizations start empowering workers to adapt to the increasing complexity, there will be no difference between work and learning, and we’ll have to move away from the ‘event’ model of learning and start integrating learning more closely into our activities. I’ve been calling it learning experience design , but really it’s more.

learning in complexity and chaos

Harold Jarche

Most of our current work structures are designed to address complicated situations, such as constructing a building, launching a campaign, or designing a piece of equipment. Sharing on social media is usually cooperative — unless you are in marketing.
