    [Collaboration] agile sensemaking
    This is collaboration. “Complex environments represent a continuous challenge for sensemaking in organizations. Continuous ambiguity exerts continuous pressures on organizations to modify their patterns of interaction, information flow and decision making. Organizations struggle to address situations that are precarious, explanations that are equivocal and paradoxical, and cognitive dilemmas of all kinds. This creates a demand for innovative approaches in sensemaking.

    [Collaboration] How to Use Gamification in Mobile App Onboarding
    Interactivity causes onboarding to seem more like a collaboration than a boring tutorial, and if done right, it can make users feel as if their input really counts. Playing games is a human impulse. People get a kick out of competing, collecting things, and finishing tasks. You can apply game design elements to anything, which is called gamification. Mobile app onboarding is a useful place for a touch of competition or goal-setting.

    [Collaboration] distributing power for the network era
    Networks also enable work to be done cooperatively, as opposed to collaboratively in institutions or competitive markets. A certain amount of command and control, exercised through a hierarchy is often necessary to get work done. I suggest temporary, negotiated hierarchies so that teams can form and re-form depending on what needs to be done. Reorganization can be inherent in the enterprise structure and not a cataclysmic event that happens only when management systems fail.

    [Collaboration] The ballad of the sad instruction librarian
    In response to what Nick Schiller tweeted, my collaborator and friend Lisa Hinchliffe wrote: I wish librs would stop hiring ppl to teach it aren't good at teaching. I have instructors who really collaborate with me around determining the shape of library support for their classes. Instructors often underestimate librarians, seeing them more as service providers who demo databases rather than as instructors, experts, or collaborators.

    [Collaboration] Radical Coherency
    Where people are communicating and collaborating in ways that apply best principles in an way that integrates them into an aligned whole that’s greater than the sum of the parts. Tied to my last post about insufficient approaches, I was thinking again about the Coherent Organization . Coherency is powerful, but it could be a limiting metaphor. So I want to explore it a bit further. First, coherency is powerful. Lasers, for example, are just light, the same as comes from your lightbulbs.

    [Collaboration] Simple Insufficiency
    PKM, WoL (SyW), 70:20:10, teaming, collaborating and communicating, etc, are all elements, but they need to be tied together. As things get more complex, organizations are looking to get more agile. And they’re looking at a wide variety of approaches in different areas. It can be agile, digital transformation, design thinking, and more. And, by and large, these are all good things. And all of them are quite simply insufficient. Why do I suggest this insufficiency?

    [Collaboration] In Digital Transformation, The Art-of-the-Possible and Average Practice Are Diverging
    This kind of cross-entity learning primary comes in three forms, though there are numerous ways to do it: Industry consortiums, which we’ve long had, as well as more digital versions of consortiums such as collaborative multi-organizational Networks of Excellence and of course, the aforementioned Global Solution Networks. From my experience in the field of mass collaboration, my view is that it’s almost certainly the latter.

    [Collaboration] Session on IL in different contexts : Pam liveblogs from #ECIL2017
    Collaboration was really important, and the team made best use of expertise from across the university. Fabian Franke from Bamberg university library in Germany spoke about government information literacy at German universities and the role of the library in this. Information literacy has to fit into the digital strategy of the university. Librarians need new skills in order to be part of this digital strategy, and that this should be part of the curricula at library school.

    [Collaboration] Stephane Goldstein: information literacy and the future of work : Pam blogs from #ECIL2017
    Stephane introduced some long term workplace trends, for example a trend for less hierarchical organisational structures, that work is becoming less routine and there is an increase in project work, meaning more collaborative and team work. A more optimistic vision of the future is that the workforce will be "ageless", "mindful", "intuitive" and "collaborative".

    It also fitted in with what Goldstein characterised as a "rosy" view" of the workforce as ageless (meaning, you can work as long as you like without discrimination), mindful, collaborative and intuitive. From this: what are the information needs of these people, and how can the idea of collaborative information use and sharing be squared with this more precarious and isolated way of working.

With changes in teaching practice and new learning technologies, there are changing competencies required by teachers, and hence there have to be changes in teacher education. Information literacy is essential to this process. Several countries already include IL in pre-service education for teachers.

    Collaboration was a key feature of library space. The data did not show how people moved through the space, but showed both collaboration, and people working individually. Danuta is dean of libraries and professor at the college of computing and informatics at Drexel University, USA. She proposed 3 ideas: the library as the learners' workplace; the relationship between space and learning is an emerging area of study; libraries are prime examples of this phenomenon.

    [Collaboration] Developing L&D
    The idea is to address a particular tactical goal as part of a strategic plan, and to do so in ways that both embody and develop learning and a collaboration culture. In doing so, you’re having the team collaborate with digital tools (even if/while working F2F, but ideally you have a distributed team). Ultimately, you are developing both their skills on the process itself and on working together in collaborative ways.

So what is a good basis for finding ways to support people in the moment and develop them over time? We want to look to what research and theory tell us.

Yet, upon investigation, it’s clear that they appear to not be particularly innovative in their approach to work spaces. Here’s why. The report I saw says that Apple is intending to use an open office plan.

While not the master he was, I could rebuild a carburetor, gap points and sparkplugs, as well as adjust the timing. In short, I could do a tuneup on the car. And I think that’s what Learning & Development (L&D) needs, a tuneup.
