The 7 Ps of Modern Workplace Learning

The 7 Ps of Modern Workplace Learning | social learning for change | Scoop.it

21 April 2015 by Jane Hart: I have shared, in a number of places, a diagram of Modern Workplace Learning (MWL) , which I believes visualise all the main ways we learn at work. However, I have recently added a few P words that have helped to summarise the different elements as well as L&D’s role in it in order to help people at work. so I am sharing this diagram.

Roberto Ivan Ramirez's curator insight, December 8, 2014 3:36 PM

No sólo se debe enfocar en la cantidad de herramientas tecnológicas o recursos digitales que los docentes de determinado nivel educativo puedan implementar en su práctica pedagógica, sin antes se reflexiona la manera como las tecnologías pueden ser de utilidad para generar aprendizaje de manera individual o colaborativo, todo depende del tipo de estrategia o técnica a ser empleada, si se va a centrar en resolver problemas o desarrollar proyectos. Es parte de lo que propone el modelo TPACK, integración de diversos conocimientos que atiendan de manera transversal la realidad cotidiana de los alumnos, de la sociedad y del mundo.

From managing learning to building an Enterprise Learning Network

From managing learning to building an Enterprise Learning Network | social learning for change | Scoop.it
I’ve recently been working with some organisations helping them use their internal Enterprise Social Network (ESN) to offer a wider range of learning initiatives and inspire a culture of continuous social learning in the workplace.
carmendsw's insight:

This article by Jane Hart includes links to a useful whitepaper about how learning and knowledge networks can be supported by organizations. 

“Defining “social learning” simply as an extension of e-learning is missing the big picture, as it overlooks the more significant fact that social tools can enhance the natural social learning that takes place in the workplace through knowledge sharing and collaboration, and how this opens many new opportunities for Learning & Development departments to support workplace learning more widely.”

As Ara Ohanian rightly comments: Line leaders make a huge difference to the effectiveness of staff learning but does this mean they need to be trainers? No. Sometimes they will need to train, sometimes they will need to coach and mentor, but most importantly they need to provide opportunities that challenge their direct reports and help them grow.

carmendsw's insight:

Great short blog about capacity building in development cooperation. Many 'capacity building' projects focus on transfer of knowledge to a few selected individuals for a limited period of time (for example in a training).

Take-aways: I.) To have an impact, capacity building must support learners (and their organisations) to take active responsibility of learning and applying what they have learned. II.) Experts are not always the best facilitators or teachers III.) Development sector needs to apply adult learning methods and insights from others about how to engage people and support their learning process.

Information and knowledge sharing are crucial for building a sector with the ability to learn and adapt. Such information flows can also help drive down costs. This article explains that the challenge of information sharing goes beyond technologies and platforms, to this issue of creating a culture that encourages more openness and data sharing, ensureing staff understand how and why to share data safely, fostering trust and making sure the right skills are in place. Effective information sharing requires a clear purpose and leadership commitment.
