Margaret Driscoll, Learning Organization Librarian's insight:

"... what often goes unrecognized is that among the biggest obstacles to the adoption of new pedagogy are the current beliefs that one holds about how people learn. One way to think about these "beliefs" has been described by Peter Senge. In The Fifth Discipline (1990) Senge describes these beliefs as mental models--invisible assumptions that determine how we view the world and also how we make decisions. In education such "theories-in-use" not only govern how we view our students ability to learn, they also impact the decisions that we make about the most effective way to instruct them."

 

"the businesses that will be most successful in the future will be those who can become "learning organizations"--places in which everyone is a learner."

 

" if (a) group of individuals could come to that meeting in a spirit of inquiry--the willingness to suspend one's own position long enough to listen to the other person--then something very different could occur. In that kind of communication everyone grows in understanding, and, when the time comes to make a decision, the participants have a much greater understanding about what they are making a decision about."

Building a Culture to Embrace Millennials

Building a Culture to Embrace Millennials | Learning Organizations | Scoop.it
Adopting a Millennial Culture The more statistics, the more it all just blends together. Maybe it is just me. When looking at the numbers above, they just don’t matter. Remove the the statistics, and the narrative is vital to a vibrant organizational culture. Career progression Personal development and training Work abroad Receive feedback in real time A comfortable and inspiring environment Collaboration with clarity of purpose and goals What these elements mean for an organizational culture include: Clear career plans and rotations to develop the next generation of leaders (including a global perspective, if possible) Solid training and development offerings to include a professional and personal focus and betterment Timely feedback where frequency and meaning are essential; annual reviews become just a milestone New workspaces to enable interaction and familiarity, meaning ease to work together (around a “kitchen” table or an individual space, for example) Clarity in purpose and goals to empower collaboration and inspire the work to be done The reality: this is a culture most generations want. The difference is it can no longer just be words on a wall. This is the culture the next generation of leaders will demand and put in place as leaders. It is a culture of words-in-action. It is a culture we need to be building now. What other elements would you add to build the right organizational culture for the next generation? - See more at: http://www.thindifference.com/2013/07/29/building-a-culture-to-embrace-millennials-infographic/#sthash.ruXR2HVU.dpuf

100 Websites You Should Know and Use (updated!) | TED Blog | Learning Organizations | Scoop.it

posted by Jessica Gross

 

"In the spring of 2007, Julius Wiedemann, editor in charge at Taschen GmbH, gave a legendary TED University talk: an ultra-fast-moving ride through the “100 websites you should know and use.” Six years later, it remains one of the most viewed TED blog posts ever. Time for an update? We think so. Below, the 2013 edition of the 100 websites to put on your radar and in your browser.

Knowmad Society

Knowmad Society | Learning Organizations | Scoop.it
Knowmad Society explores the future of learning, work, and how we relate with each other in a world driven by accelerating change, value networks, and the rise of knowmads.

Via TD, Lynnette Van Dyke
Margaret Driscoll, Learning Organization Librarian's insight:

"In other words, knowmads are extensions of Drucker’s (1992) knowledge workers concept, embracing the convergence of accelerating technological change and globalization."

 

"Knowmads are valued for the personal knowledge that they possess, and this knowledge gives them a competitive advantage. Knowmads are responsible for designing their own futures. This represents a massive shift from agricultural, industrial, and information-based work in which our relationships and responsibilities were clearly defined by others."
