Why support self-organized learning in the workplace?

Jane Hart

I recently shared a diagram of what it might look like to move from a focus on organizing and managing training, to helping individuals and teams self-organize in the workplace? The Smart Worker (SW) learns continuously as she does her job > Integrate learning in the workflow.

70:20:10 - Beyond the Blend

The diagram below also represents a common view of blended learning. Diagram from Heinze & Proctor ‘Reflections on the Use of Blended Learning’ (2004). This is what my colleague Jane Hart calls dependent learning (see diagram below).

Autonomy and Value in Social and Workplace Learning

Charles Jennings

My colleague Jane Hart recently shared the diagram below on her blog. Learning in the Modern Workplace’ Model Jane’s diagram shows the increasing value that can be released through exploiting learning opportunities beyond ‘the course’ – or the curriculum.

Building a Culture of Continuous Learning

Charles Jennings

A diagram from the study (below) illustrates this second point. Qualcomm’s ‘ 52 week''s’ programme is an excellent example of this approach - enhancing or replacing intensive away-from-work on-boarding with information and resources ‘injected’ into the workflow. Most people get it.

Distributed Cognition

Clark Quinn

We use diagrams, tables, graphs, charts, and more to help us understand situations better. In fact, our ecosystem is the tools and people we have ‘to hand’, accessible in or from the workflow. In my last post , I talked about situated cognition.

Start with the 70. Plan for the 100.

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.

Survey: Are you ready, willing and able to support learning in the new social workplace?

Jane Hart

In the diagram on the right I show 5 key types of activity across the Social Workplace Learning Continuum that I think that will need to be supported.). In other words, that it won’t be just about organizing and managing formal structured learning events (Social Training) but also about encouraging and supporting Social Collaboration in the workflow.

The above diagram, by Nick Milton , shows some important aspects of what influences performance [hint: blue]. Nick Milton’s diagram shows the inherent weakness of the pervasive workplace technology called learning management systems. Tweet.

Determinism, Best Practice, and the ‘Training Solution’

Charles Jennings

Clark’s diagram here gives a clear view. We need to help our leaders, managers and workers to better exploit the learning opportunities in their daily workflow.

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

Jane Hart

Some workers and some problems may well require formal training interventions; others might be supported through more informal approaches, and others might be helped by changes in work processes (so carrying out workflow audits mentioned earlier, will be required).

Listening

Clark Quinn

My diagramming bent had me map out the workflow of a client’s production process, to identify opportunities to tweak the process to bring in better learning science with minimal interruption. Listening, as I mentioned, in this case to Guy Wallace. As one of the premier promoters of evidence-based design, he responded to my question about what to post on with: Any “How Tos” using methods, tools and techniques that you’ve found to work in L&D and Performance Improvement.

Point Solutions vs. Suites and Composition

As an example, here's a screen shot of a workflow defined: LAMS allows the specification of a blended learning sequence via a workflow diagram. The LAMS approach is good to look at, because it looks like the workflow problem that this really is.

Top 10 eLearning Predictions 2011 #LCBQ

Tony Karrer

Sometimes it’s easier to add smarts to the workflow (performance support) than to stuff things into people’s heads. This month's #LCBQ is the first with the Big Question Thought Leaders. It's been fun working with them and has definitely added a new spark.

Managing Metadata with Resource Profiles

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

A workflow is suggested whereby a resource profiles engine manages and combines this data, producing various views of the resource, or in other words, a set of resource profiles. Even in pre-internet days, educators would employ books and notes, classrooms, maps and diagrams, guest speakers, field trips, and more. Paper prepared for an upcoming conference. Abstract Existing learning object metadata describing learning resources postulates descriptions contained in a single document.

The Reality of Virtual Learning

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

The old model is – well, this diagram (the SCORM diagram) is just a few years old - the old model is less than a decade old. I’ve identified three major types of mechanisms by which these connections are formed in this diagram here. I’ve represented it in this diagram. This diagram merges or combines two major functions. Another example of this learning is what Jay Cross calls workflow learning or informal learning.
