Social Games & Community Development

Social Games & Community Development | Training, Learning and Instructional Design | Scoop.it
So I’ve been doing research for a chapter on social and informal learning that I’m adding the second edition, and I’ve been taking a look at some of the resources on social gaming because they know a *lot* about community development.
Benjamin Carmel's insight:

Valuable resources on building learning communities and related "gamification" structures, from the great Julie Dirksen.

Beyond Bias

Beyond Bias | Training, Learning and Instructional Design | Scoop.it
How then can the negative effects of bias be overcome? Collectively. Organizations and teams can become aware of bias in ways that individuals cannot. Team-based practices can be redesigned to help identify biases as they emerge, and counteract them on the fly, thus mitigating their effect.
Benjamin Carmel's insight:

This is a really interesting article about an aspect of teamwork that may be overlooked. Collaboration can mitigate biases.

Practical Guidance from MOOC Research: Persistence and Activity - Education Week (subscription) (blog)

Practical Guidance from MOOC Research: Persistence and Activity - Education Week (subscription) (blog) | Training, Learning and Instructional Design | Scoop.it
MOOC research has a mixed record on helping us understand which students are likely to persist through a course.
Benjamin Carmel's insight:

If you're interested in MOOCs, this is worth a look. It hits on what I think is the critical issue: Intent. I'm less concerned in figuring out why learners don't complete MOOCs than in why they sign up. Capturing that initial intent to learn is where the magic is.

HR, Training and the 'Gig' Economy - HRE Daily - Human Resource Executive Online (blog) | Training, Learning and Instructional Design | Scoop.it
Is there a connection between a drop in training efforts and a rise in the "gig economy"?
Benjamin Carmel's insight:

That's right: Career paths, professional development and "training" (whatever that means exactly, anymore) are now personal and portable. Smart organizations -- and even smarter workers -- are investing energy in teaching/learning the skills to develop personal knowledge.
