How to respond to learning-style believers

How to respond to learning-style believers | Training, Learning and Instructional Design | Scoop.it

I think one clear misgiving in the learning style conversation is the implied assumption that learners only learn through their dominant style.

Benjamin Carmel's insight:

Quite a thoughtful way to debunk (in this case learning styles, but the lessons apply broadly), from Cathy Moore.

A visual history of human knowledge

A visual history of human knowledge | Training, Learning and Instructional Design | Scoop.it
How does knowledge grow? Sometimes it begins with one insight and grows into many branches; other times it grows as a complex and interconnected network. Infographics expert Manuel Lima explores the thousand-year history of mapping data -- from languages to dynasties -- using trees and networks of information. It's a fascinating history of visualizations, and a look into humanity's urge to map what we know.
Benjamin Carmel's insight:

This doesn't relate directly to learning and ID, but the discussion of how we've switched from thinking about hierarchies and trees to networks and mesh strongly speaks to modern adult learning.

Collaborate for Real

Turning the lingo of collaboration into everyday practice
Benjamin Carmel's insight:

A nice review of some recent books on "collaboration" in the workplace. The author nicely distills things into simple ideas:

 

"Keep organizational boundaries flexible and fluid; use technology to disrupt them; share data and let different interpretations of it be heard; tie compensation to collaboration; reimagine corporate taxonomies…

"Think like an anthropologist—with curiosity, healthy cynicism, and an appreciation for how things relate to one another so that you’re able to recognize when systems no longer make sense. Also, consider jumping across a corporate or social divide yourself once in a while."

How To Create An Environment Of Collaboration

How To Create An Environment Of Collaboration | Training, Learning and Instructional Design | Scoop.it
Stop focusing on getting everyone to participate equally, and start recognizing individual contributions.
Benjamin Carmel's insight:

Collaboration does not mean egalitarian distribution of work or leaderless projects (necessarily). Focus on outcomes, not division of labor.

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) | 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.

Transcript of "How too many rules at work keep you from getting things done" | Training, Learning and Instructional Design | Scoop.it
TED Talk Subtitles and Transcript: Modern work -- from waiting tables to crunching numbers to designing products -- is about solving brand-new problems every day, flexibly and collaboratively. But as Yves Morieux shows in this insightful talk, too often, an overload of rules, processes and metrics keeps us from doing our best work together. Meet the new frontier of productivity: cooperation.

This is a terrific TED Talk that addresses the problems of complex organizations getting in their own way by discouraging the very activity that's needed most: Cooperation.

How Diversity Makes Us Smarter

How Diversity Makes Us Smarter | Training, Learning and Instructional Design | Scoop.it
Being around people who are different from us makes us more creative, more diligent and harder-working
Benjamin Carmel's insight:

This makes obvious sense when we talk about diversity of disciplinary backgrounds—think again of the interdisciplinary team building a car. The same logic applies to social diversity. People who are different from one another in race, gender and other dimensions bring unique information and experiences to bear on the task at hand. A male and a female engineer might have perspectives as different from one another as an engineer and a physicist—and that is a good thing.
