Personal processing

Clark Quinn

I was thinking about a talk on mobile I’m going to be giving, and realized that mobile is really about personal processing. So the question then became “what doesn’t make sense on a mobile” And my thought was that industrial strength processing doesn’t make sense on a mobile. So, for instance, while word processing isn’t really CPU intensive, for some reason mobile word processors don’t seamlessly integrate outlining.

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.

The Quinnovation eLearning Process Survey

Clark Quinn

My interest is in finding out about the processes used in designing and delivering elearning. In the interests of understanding where the market is, I’m looking to benchmark where organizations are. Sure, there are other data points, but I have my own questions I would like to get answered. So I’ve created a quick survey of seven questions (thanks, SurveyMonkey) I’d love for you to fill out.

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. 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.

Job-Killing Processes

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.

Meaningful processing

Clark Quinn

I’ve talked previously about social processing, so I’m going to focus specifically on individual processing. So, for instance, coloring a poster with the associated words doesn’t do the necessary processing, you need to activate the necessary concepts with connections to relevant things. You need to semantically process the terms again and again. So can we start focusing on learning activities that generate meaningful processing?

Design the process, not the outcome

We don't design the outcome, we design the processes of interaction and monitor for emergence. Coevolution in biology occurs when two parties exert selective evolutionary pressures on each other as a result of which they are changed.

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. 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. As the subtitle tells you, the book is about “micro collaboration between elearning designers and instructor experts&#.

Business transformation: an ongoing process of shifting to more open organizations

However that must be deeply considered and carefully executed, creating an ongoing and, realistically, unending process of organization change. The post Business transformation: an ongoing process of shifting to more open organizations appeared first on Trends in the Living Networks.

ABIDE - overview of process

Picking up on yesterdays post on ABIDE. As I suspected forcing myself to teach the idea produced some innovation and resolution of problems. Thinking back nearly everything original I have developed (including the various Cynefin representations) have been achieved on my feet in front of an audience. Some people are visual thinkers, some written, I think I reflect the oral tradition I come from, the interaction with an audience opens up new channels of thinking.

Advice as process

David Weinberger

And that larger sense of advice seems to me not to be a self-contained activity, but a process and a social interaction. Marginal Revolution has a terrific post about giving advice. I find myself conflicted about the topic. Although I am an occasional consultant and adviser, I don’t think of myself as giving advice.

Our discussions quickly identified competing administrative priorities: loading a competition, tracking metrics, managing the shortlisting process. After our interviews, we ranked the identified priorities and, to the surprise of the team, we realized that the shortlisting process (taking a large number of competition entries and refining it down to the top few; this is done numerous times over the life of a competition) was more in need of a designed solution.
