I started this last week, posting about 4-5 articles related to learning & development issues from each week which I believe are worth a few minutes of your time. I hope that you’ll pay attention to these blog and sites in general, as I frequent them daily, and they have a lot of valuable information.
So with that said, here are 4 articles from this week:
- Is training really the answer? Ask the flow chart. (Cathy Moore’s blog)- A great post by Cathy Moore in which she talks about “permanent workflow improvements that avoid the need for training.”
- This is my work (Like in perpetual Beta) Harold Jarche – a great source of insight on workplace learning – writes about the impact of social learning and “hyper connected work environments.”
- Informal learning’s many shades of gray (Chief Learning Officer) – Bob Mosher looks at 4 different levels of performance support, including Enterprise-wide workflow support, in which he writes: “mature learning organizations recognize that the ultimate goal is an overarching performance support framework that not only guides a learner in a specific area, it supports him or her across the entire workflow. These frameworks are embedded across applications, while simultaneously supporting non-system tasks.” Interesting read.
- 8 important characteristics of adult learners (eLearning Industry) – Christopher Pappas examines 8 common traits which characterize adult learners, and what instructional designers need to know in order to create the right course content and structure, and adjust their attitude.
- How to improve your teamwork skills (Total Learning) – Alex Petryck contributes a series of tips that will help you get back in a position to ensure your team’s success.
