bYThe Next Generation of Workplace Learning Practices in the Age of Knowledge Sharing and Collaboration

bYThe Next Generation of Workplace Learning Practices in the Age of Knowledge Sharing and Collaboration | Learning Organizations | Scoop.it
Last week I wrote a post about Connected Learning and how it offers a semi-directed, semi-structured approach to workplace learning that fits between the directed, structured knowledge sharing (aka training or e-learning) that has been the way that L&D has traditionally operated, and the unstructured, self-directed knowledge sharing that happens in work teams and groups in the flow of work.

Knoco stories: Knowledge communities, or learner communities?

Knoco stories: Knowledge communities, or learner communities? | Learning Organizations | Scoop.it

"Not every organisational context is the same, therefore not every Knowledge Management solution is the same. That's a fact of life, and it even applies to such tried-and-tested KM components as the Community of Practice.

The standard view of the Community of Practice is that of a network of people who collectively act as a mutual knowledge resource. Within the Community is a wide range of experience - from highly-experienced old-timers, to relative newcomers - experts and newbies sharing the same community. Through asking and answering questions, they provide each other with useful knowledge that helps each practitioner to perform their work better. Often the answers to questions come from the more experienced staff, but this is not always the case, as I explain in my blog post about the Long Tail of Knowledge.

Learning, as we already discussed, is a change in behavior.
Margaret Driscoll, Learning Organization Librarian's insight:

"Organizations achieve lasting, permanent behavior change when the lessons being taught are incorporated into the culture and organizational narrative of the organization: in other words, when people not only learn the lessons being taught, but also view those lessons as part of being successful in the organization."

Learning Conversations: Opportunities to Share Tacit Knowledge - Linkis.com | Learning Organizations | Scoop.it

"Inside of your organization, valuable knowledge is not being accessed. More importantly, it’s not being used to improve employee development, increase organizational performance, or advance bottom line growth.


In fact, arguably the most valuable form of knowledge in an organization—an individual’s tacit knowledge—rarely is accessible to others. What if you did have access to that knowledge—that information that would allow you to reach conclusions faster or facilitate strategic management decisions? It is possible if you use the right methods"

This article is filled with some good food for thought.  It is interesting to read about the concept of "Working out Loud", a trend that has developed as a result of the connectivism of social networking.  It is also interesting to read about new trends in learning.  Lots of good food for thought.
