The Knowledge Sharing Paradox – Ownership or Thought Leadership?

The Knowledge Sharing Paradox – Ownership or Thought Leadership? | mediated learning & digital media for professionals | Scoop.it

[Excerpt] "Our goal as enterprise learning experts is to find the most effective way to change audience behavior to align with a certain business objective. Extremely relevant to this practice is the ever-changing ways in which people communicate and learn from each other. If we want a learner to accept or adopt a certain change in behavior, it would make sense that we need to structure a corporate learning experience as closely as possible to those experiences sought out by that learner on their own time.

 

Therefore, because the large majority of learning has been revealed to occur through on-the-job and social experiences, not through formal training channels, we must enable and foster these more informal experiences to occur within the workplace."

sarspri's insight:

Though this was written for an audience of corporate trainers (or "enterprise learning experts"), the importance of informal learning opportunities and networks is just as important and applicable within higher education and other learning contexts. 

 

These concepts are essential for the development of networked language teaching professionals.

A Simple Guide To 4 Complex Learning Theories

A Simple Guide To 4 Complex Learning Theories | mediated learning & digital media for professionals | Scoop.it

Like this quote.  "Learning theory is an attempt to describe how people learn." It is complex because it is emergent and defies being reduced to simple components, but we must keep trying to understand it.  "The journey is the destinaton" as an Eastern philospher once said.

Great diagram. We just need to always keep in mind that theories of learning are not theories of teaching. Always "mind the gap" as a voice once said to me as I sat on a train in London.
