Leadership by Example

Harold Jarche

Here are two examples. Now that process takes about six weeks. He was enormously frightened but did make the kill correctly, appropriately through the process of ‘modelling’ Now Mary modelled how to dress for years. Leadership by example becomes the key.

eLearning Process Survey results!

Clark Quinn

So, a few weeks ago I ran a survey asking about elearning processes*, and it’s time to look at the results (I’ve closed it). eLearning process is something I’m suggesting is ripe for change, and I thought it appropriate to see what people thoughts.

Trending Sources

The Chinese Test Example

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

It''s encouraging to see recent trends in math instruction trying to move beyond the "Old Way" - that hallowed, relentless focus on the process of performing calculations without ever helping students see what the calculations *mean*. That''s a really interesting use of the Chinese Room example (it is well known as such to philosophers). link] The example was originally intended as a response to the ''Turing Test'' model for evaluating artificial intelligence.

A Competent Competency Process

Clark Quinn

In the process of looking at ways to improve the design of courses, the starting point is good objectives. SO drilling in the exact meanings of words is valuable, as an example. We then need good processes, so I’ve talked to a couple of educational institutions doing competencies, to see what could be learned. And it’s clear that while there’s no turnkey approach, what’s emerging is a process with some specific elements.

Types of meaningful processing

Clark Quinn

What I’m looking for is ways to get learners to do processing in ways that will assist their ability to do. It has learners monitor the process, and then they can turn that on themselves to become self-monitoring. This processing of the rules in context exposes the underlying issues in important ways. Rather than present them with the models, I’m again looking for more meaningful processing.

Innovation is not a repeatable process

Harold Jarche

Can innovation be promoted through better processes? I have not been able to find any regular correllation between well adopted innovation processes and actual innovation outcomes, and I’ve been looking pretty hard. I want every knowledge worker to discover his or her own processes.

Nature Conservancy Instagram Contest and Other Examples

Beth Kanter

The post summarized why it may be important, best practices, and a few nonprofit examples. One of my blog readers, Sarah Mowry, Outreach Director for the Deschutes Land Trust pointed me to Nature Conservancy’s Instagram contest , an image scavenger hunt.

Montessori Is An Example Of The New Culture of Learning

Steve Denning

I reported a few days ago on a conversation with the authors , Douglas Thomas and John Seely Brown, of the wonderful new book, A New Culture of Learning: Cultivating the Imagination for a World of Constant Change.

Design the process, not the outcome

Dave Snowden

Once that change happens, it cannot be reversed and there are many examples in nature. We don't design the outcome, we design the processes of interaction and monitor for emergence.

Mind the SME (and process)

Clark Quinn

Along the way, it provides useful coverage of topics like shared representations, process, and the value of project management. Also, despite not being academic, and admittedly also intended for academic designers as well as corporate, the examples appear to skew to the academic side. At the recent Distance Teaching & Learning Conference I keynoted at, I met up with Jon Aleckson who, among other things, provided me a copy of his new book MindMeld.

Unlease Your Organizations Knowledge Sharing Processes

Beth Kanter

We are so focused on getting things done, checking it off the to do list and the forward momentum that it requires, that we miss an important opportunity to hit the pause button, reflect, and improve process.

An Example of the Flat Army CLAM in Action: BC Ideas2Action

Dan Pontefract

The process the Provincial Government followed is best summarized by the graphic found below: There have been over 125 ideas submitted and vetted, with a fantastic accompanying dashboard that depicts the ideas (who they came from) and the action that has been taken by the Government.

A Perfect Example of a Bad Boss: A Middle School Principal

Bob Sutton

  (No interview process, no panel discussion.    One example:  we no longer retain students who flunk more than two major classes in grades 7 or 8.    We literally do not know how to talk to her about what is not working, because she is so hypersensitive and easily flummoxed that we fear she can’t process it – and we fear more greatly that she will try to “get us” for expressing concerns.

Job-Killing Processes

Martijn Linssen

I’ve been wrestling with a thought lately – if organizations are complex systems, and complex systems are continuously self-organizing, then why do we believe formal processes make these complex systems more efficient?

IT Doesn’t Matter. Business processes do

Jay Cross

Consultants Howard Smith and Peter Fingar shot back a month later with a paperback retort entitled IT Doesn’t Matter – Business Processes Do. In 120 pages, Smith and Fingar skewer Carr, show why IT will matter more than ever, and explain how business process management creates riches.

Other PKM processes

Harold Jarche

It seems that Stephen Downes isn’t enamoured with my PKM process : My first thought was, do I do it this way? “categorizing’, for example, is something I do only if my head is in a vise and I have no alternative – and even then, I use scripts to do it for me.

LMS Selection Process

Tony Karrer

So, first, what am I talking about: How to Conduct a Successful Learning Management Systems (LMS) Selection Process LMS Selection Background: I'm coming from a background of personally working and coaching on a bunch of LMS selection, installation and configuration projects and being heavily involved in the design and development of several custom LMS implementations. Most people only go through a few selection processes in their career. Getting agreement on strategy and process.

Examples of eLearning 2.0

Clark Quinn

internal processes on wiki starting to use wikis internally Moving faculty bookmarks to Delicious use wiki for learners to craft definition of 'seamless service' after searching orgs that proclaim to provide seamless service We hope to build wikis that our students can use to share information. During my presentation last Thursday that was an introduction to eLearning 2.0 as part of an online event for the eLearningGuild, I mentioned a few common ways that I've seen eLearning 2.0

TNP 8. Associationism: Inferential Processes

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

Associationism: Inferential Processes A. Such systems, I have noted, automatically, via various learning mechanisms, perform various associative tasks, for example, generalization. We produce abstractions by processing conscious input. This is not a rule-governed process.

Monday Broken ID Series: Examples

Clark Quinn

I see several reliable problems with examples, and they aren’t even the deepest problems. Then, when they do exist, too often they’re cookie-cutter examples, that don’t delve into the necessary elements that make examples successful, let alone are intrinsically interesting, yet we know what these elements are! Conceptually, examples are applications of the concept in a context. Note that the choice of examples is important. So, please do good examples.

Beginner2Beginner: Javascript multi-file upload + PHP to process it

David Weinberger

For example, suppose you are writing an app that lets users take notes on an article using a plain old text processor. They can then upload those note files to some code that processes them, perhaps turning them into a database. There are plenty of slick, free examples on the Web that provide beautiful front ends for doing this. Here’s what it looks like, although this particular example won’t actually upload anything: Upload!

Referral Relationships and Selection Process

Tony Karrer

where he says that: I've witnessed more than one example of e-Learning and LMS consultants who are hired by an organization to help select a vendor and create a deployment strategy. Having been involved in this process for many years, I can't imagine how a consultant can do this. Saw a post by Justyn Howard Who took the 'consult' out of 'consulting'?

Design ‘debt’ and quality process

Clark Quinn

Obviously, software design isn’t the same as learning design, though learning design could stand to benefit from what software engineers know about process and quality. For example, the Personal Software Process ‘ focus on quality review and data-driven improvement could do wonders for improving individual and team learning design. There are mistakes reliably made, and yet we don’t identify them nor have processes to systematically remedy them.

How to use the Web to teach: An example

David Weinberger

Among the many things I like about this approach: It implicitly makes the process of learning — which we have traditionally taken as an inward process — a social, outbound process. Want to see one way to use the Web to teach? Berkman ’s Jonathan Zittrain and Stanford Law’s Elizabeth Stark are teaching a course called Difficult Problems in Cyberlaw. It looks like they have students creating wiki pages for the various topics being discussed.

Social Formal – it’s the processing!

Clark Quinn

In thinking about the benefits of adding social to formal learning for a presentation I’ll be giving, I realized that the main reason to extend social activities into formal learning is for the additional processing it provides. While there is processing individually, social interaction provides more opportunities. The types of learning processing that matter for learning are personalizing, elaborating, and applying. There are additional processing benefits here.

Intensive and Extensive Processing: Making Formal Stickier

Clark Quinn

These things include activating emotional and cognitive relevance, presenting the associated concepts, showing examples that link concept to context, having learners apply concept to context, and wrapping up the experience. Several things, however, facilitate the depth and persistence of the learning: intensive processing, and extensive processing. By extensive processing, I mean extending the learning experience. Again, a social augment to facilitate deep processing.

Edge Perspectives with John Hagel: Process versus Practice

John Hagel

Ive spent the better part of my career building applications that help people connect to each other and share knowledge (search is the best example of that). Business processes were the primary focus of business performance and companies generated considerable cost savings from this focus.

stories connect knowledge

Harold Jarche

This starts with the discipline of personal knowledge mastery ( PKM ): a set of processes, individually constructed, to help each of us make sense of our world and work more effectively. The Ritz-Carlton provides an excellent example with Stories that Stay with You.

For example, GE Healthcare redesigned their medical imaging equipment so that children would find the experience less scary. For example, some services work to give you tangible evidence of what they did for you as a final point of uplift.

Business Practice Redesign

John Hagel

In the world of scalable efficiency, processes rule. Businesses around the world are well into their third decade of “business process reengineering”, massive initiatives designed to create more and more tightly integrated and standardized business processes to squeeze out the inefficiency that lurks when people don’t follow instructions to the letter. It turns out that we’re spending more and more of our time outside processes.

Inherent uncertainty is our natural habitat

Charles Jennings

The ‘knowledge transfer’ model doesn’t even work between organisations in industries with relatively standardised process. There is no ‘best practice’ where there are different environments and processes.
