Harold Jarche

Last year I put down some working definitions in the field of performance and learning: My own working definitions of these terms [these are not robust, dictionary definitions, but just my own way of putting each term], which I often discuss here and with clients are: Performance - something measurable and observable to achieve an agreed-upon objective.

Harold Jarche

The 70:20:10 framework is a useful model based on observations that generally, people learn 70% of what they need to do their job from experience. About 20% is learned from exposure to new tasks or environments. Only 10% is learned through formal education.

This was before the days of WebCT and broader use of learning management systems. I then made the jump to University of Manitoba, started my phd (now finished), and continued developing courses and programs, including the certificate in emerging technologies for learning.

Social Media: An Interview

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

I was asked to contribute my responses to interview questions on social media for a new journal called The Future of Learning and of course I was happy to send some thoughts along.

Learning Outcomes

Tony Karrer

My post on learning goals has some great feedback via comments and a couple of blog posts. The focus of the post is really about the design of informal / social learning experiences and my belief that they need to have context for what I call Directed Learners.
