Editor's Letter: Failure Is an Option - Chief Learning Officer

Editor's Letter: Failure Is an Option - Chief Learning Officer | Training, Learning and Instructional Design | Scoop.it
Take it from start-up culture: failing is a pivotal part of succeeding.
Benjamin Carmel's insight:

A coherent "learning department isn’t just tasked with developing employee skills. They’re the keeper of the corporate culture and a primary communicator with the organization."

 

It's the way things are going in the future. It's everybody's job to learn on the job, through both success and failure.

The TWO roles for L&D in the modern workplace: Learning Managers & Learning Consultants

I have written a lot about how the Web is changing the way that many of us now learn. For example, here is an article I wrote for the 50th edition of the Inside Learning Technologies magazine in October 2014.
Benjamin Carmel's insight:

Interesting read, very thought provoking.

Innovation and Philosophy by Santiago Montenegro - Project Syndicate

Innovation and Philosophy by Santiago Montenegro - Project Syndicate | Training, Learning and Instructional Design | Scoop.it
Benjamin Carmel's insight:

Innovation can't be learned/taught. Create the environment and context in which innovation bloom, and it might strike. As managers and learning professionals, encouraging transparency, open sharing and continual cross-pollination are the best bets.

Understanding “New Power”

Understanding “New Power” | Training, Learning and Instructional Design | Scoop.it
The crowd is challenging traditional leadership. Here’s how to harness its energy.
Benjamin Carmel's insight:

I read this the other day, via @RogerCourville, and I just can't shake it. It is not about learning or instructional design, per se, but then again... that's exactly what it is about. The great shift is underway, and those of us in the adult learning game are -- or should be -- at the heart of it. I call it The Learning Age (http://inthelearningage.com/). The shift in power structure from command-and-control to open, transparent, and affiliated is what's going on. See @@hjarche. Such interesting times.

Learning Is the Most Celebrated Neglected Activity in the Workplace

Learning Is the Most Celebrated Neglected Activity in the Workplace | Training, Learning and Instructional Design | Scoop.it
It takes courage, as well as time.
Benjamin Carmel's insight:

Great quote, interesting read from HBR:

 

"Everyone says that learning is essential for companies’ success—and for your own. And yet, on a daily basis, who cares for your learning? No one. People care about what you have learned. They care about your results. Learning is great as long as you do it quietly, in your own time."

 

The time to change that is now. Perfect thoughts for #WOLWeek

I've asked my colleague Ashley Kehoe to write a guest post about the Dartmouth Vietnam Project. Ashley is an instructional designer, specializing in experiential and evidence-based learning.
Benjamin Carmel's insight:

"Moreover, working with people from educational technology has made us aware of resources that we didn’t even know existed on campus."

Emerging awareness is just one of the many benefits of a good working collaboration.

Performance-Focused Smile Sheets

Performance-Focused Smile Sheets | Training, Learning and Instructional Design | Scoop.it
If you trust smile sheet ratings as a barometer of how effective your learning solutions will be, you're being foolish. Fortunately, a new kind of smile sheet has been devised: the performance-focused smile sheet.
Benjamin Carmel's insight:

I was looking for something to back up my assertion that smile sheets are actually counter productive and wasteful. However, I did happen on this from Will Thalheimer that I thought was very interesting case for rethinking smiles into something actually worthwhile. (Love when that happens!)

Team-based course design. Creating MOOCs requires people across the institution to collaborate in ways not native to higher education.
Benjamin Carmel's insight:

Whatever shape(s) MOOCs may take as they evolve from novelty to a regular part of blended online learning, they have already introduced a much-needed set of conversations on education and digital learning. Read this for some of those themes.

Instructional Design as Wayfinding

As tangled as the map appears, over 95 million people a year manage to find their own way through this maze of walkways and trains and gates and escalators.
Benjamin Carmel's insight:

This is a great way to think about ID -- not just for students as the author talks about here, but for all adult learning and professional development. Puts just the right frame around ID in the workplace, too.

Live Training vs eLearning: A Comparison - Business 2 Community

Live Training vs eLearning: A Comparison - Business 2 Community | Training, Learning and Instructional Design | Scoop.it
“How much material can be covered in an eLearning module?” We’re asked this question a lot. Many clients come to us with existing live training they’re considering converting to eLearning and…
Benjamin Carmel's insight:

This troubles me. While nothing the author says is inaccurate, and he makes a strong case for eLearning as a key way to maximize tight training budgets, the premise is based in a false choice. It is not live training v eLearning; it is a learning program that is ongoing, grounded in continual improvement, and makes use of multiple learning channels, formal and informal.

Wearable Technology: will education look very different in the future? | Training, Learning and Instructional Design | Scoop.it
Benjamin Carmel's insight:

Wearables. The Internet of Everything. This isn't the future, it's now. I personally wear a fitbit and always have my smartphone on me. If you think wearing cameras is going to stop with the police, think again (you already have one in your pocket). And with nearly every object connected, its fun (challenging? disturbing?) to think how it effects learning.
