Here are some of the insights and observations that were shared via Twitter this past week.
If you read no further: for EVERYONE in the training business, read this entire article, via @MimiBarbara – Evolving Training Into the Perfect Hole by Gary Wise:
If we architect the learning resources correctly, we will have an ecosystem where…
The right performers will have seamless, frictionless, and ubiquitous access…
– to the right learning assets
– at their moment of learning need
– in a work context-friendly amount
– in a readily-consumable format
– to/from the right devices

“Ideology narrows our thinking and keeps us from effectively addressing complex problems.” via @demingSOS
“Self-education is, I firmly believe, the only kind of education there is. ~ Isaac Asimov” – via @psychoBOBlogy
through the lens of the Cynefin framework – by @davecormier [MOOCs (massively open online courses) may be more suitable for workplace learning than academia] –
MOOCs as a structure – and rhizomatic learning as an approach – privilege a certain kind of learning and learner. The MOOC offers an ecosystem in which a person can become familiar with a particular domain. Rhizomatic learning is a way of navigating that ecosystem that empowers the student to make their own maps of knowledge, to be ‘cartographers’ inside that domain. It suggests that the interacting with a community in a given domain is learning. The community is the curriculum.
Micro-blogging: the liquid knowledge network – by @dpontefract [e.g. narrating your work]
Two years ago, I wrote that ‘Micro-Blogging is Good For Leadership, Good for Your Culture’ and I haven’t flinched since.
Two years later however, I am altering my thoughts somewhat. I now believe micro-blogging must be positioned as an organizational habit for employees. (whether for internal or external purposes)
Micro-blogging; it’s truly the liquid knowledge network that (when immersed in daily work routines) can help expedite many work processes as compared to an organization without micro-blogging services and without the all-too-important habit of micro-blogging itself.
Dickinson, Gauguin, Bronte: Communication, collaboration & social networks contribute to creativity – via @JohnnieMoore
[Professor Katherine Giuffre] concludes – It was not when the artists were alone … that they were most creative, but when they were attached to others in a more moderate way and when those others were close to each other, although, again, not so close as to form one cohesive group. (p. 836)
