The learning is still here, just everywhere.

At the recent Consumer Electronics Show (CES) people from around the world had the chance to look and explore thousands of tools that will be used at work, in homes, while in transit.  More than the Internet of Things (IoT) these technological wonders are being brought to market in a seamless manner to the end … Continue reading

Is CBE Almost the Next Big Thing?

Hard to believe but almost four years ago the biggest barriers stopping competency-based education (CBE) from fully evolving were regulatory.  While much has changed, there is much that has stayed the same.  There is a need to focus on three R’s, Redesign the students’ educational experiences, Reinvent institutional goals, and Reset the system. Getting past … Continue reading

To succeed do you need college? Or an L&D organization either?

With the recent news of LinkedIn’s purchase of Lynda.com I thought back to a recent discussion I had focused on the future leaning organization and the transformational model of learning. Stretch you say? Here is where I see an interesting future for workers of all ages and challenge college’s (with their associated costs/debt) and learning … Continue reading

A Coherent Organization is… connected from the ground up

Could the barrier to coherency be one of connectedness?  “The underlying concept of a coherent organization is that organizations and their people are members of many different types of networks, for example, communities of practice, the company social network, and close-knit collaborative work teams. A coherent organization requires a single unifying framework, not two operating systems.” (Harold … Continue reading

Business is changing – are we keeping up?

LCMS – I’m over and done!

I break with thee oh old LCMS – enough!  As we move to support people at the point of need the key focus should be on the tools that help identify the need first and then guide the solution to those in search.  ~95% of an employee’s time is not spent in training, they are … Continue reading

What are the “5 big ideas that matter to you?”

A recent request came from someone presenting at a conference seeking ideas that “highlight the top 5 “big ideas that matter right now”…trends occurring in learning today and into the near future. Participants will be asked to incorporate these “big ideas” into their collaboration”.  I really think there is one big idea that has at … Continue reading

The whole Flipping (the learning) process!

Have you heard about the flipped classroom model?  The opportunity to create a class that is highly interactive and engaged while in a physical setting is one of my “ah-ha” moments, why would we not change our design?  This would also change the role of the learning leader “from presenter of content to learning coach” … Continue reading

Learning is a muscle – so what is your 2012 exercise resolution?

Learning is a process; it enhances a person’s capacity to do something.  “Learning is about building the capability to create that which you previously couldn’t create.  It’s ultimately related to action, which information is not” (Senge, 2006, p.191).  As I look to the New Year, I ponder what I can do to build capacity in … Continue reading
