Consequently, I suggest identifying those critical points where collaboration will be useful. So, at the recent AECT 2017 conference, I participated in three ways that are worth noting.

    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.

    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] knowledge-sharing, post-technology
    Your organization just implemented an enterprise collaboration platform. Over many years of working with enterprise knowledge-sharing and collaboration tools I have learned that the hard work comes after the software has been installed and the initial training sessions are over. A multi-faceted approach to enterprise collaboration. Group collaboration is supported through practices like narrating your work.

    [Collaboration] Human Learning is Not About to Change Forever
    People will learn collaboratively, no matter where they are. The possibilities in virtual worlds to collaboratively create in 3D I still think is potentially cool, but even as the technology limitations come down, the cognitive limitations remain. In my inbox was an announcement about a new white paper with the intriguing title Human Learning is About to Change Forever. So naturally I gave up my personal details to download a copy.

    Evolve, create, collaborate. Every intranet and digital workplace team is supported by an extended team of content publishers, owners and site administrator. In many organisations, this numbers in the hundreds (or more!). So the question isn’t just: is your intranet effective and successful? It’s also: are you working effectively with your extended team, and are they doing what needs to be done? Intranets2017 will cover a broad range of topics.

    Also, we get better results when we’re collaborating, not working independently. A recent twitter spat led me to some reflections, and I thought I’d share. In short, an individual I do not know attacked one of my colleague Harold’s diagrams , and said that they stood against “everything classical and rigorous” My somewhat flip comment was that “the classical and rigorous is also outdated and increasingly irrelevant.

    Of course, some of it is within the organization, whether it’s the continual dialog around a collaborative venture, or ‘show your work’ (aka work out loud). In yesterday’s post, I talked about how new tools need to be coupled with practices to facilitate exploration. And I wanted to explore more (heh) about what’s required. The metaphor is old style exploration, and the requirements to succeed.

    When I took my current job at PCC almost three years ago, I gained so many things: work I love, amazing engaged colleagues, a mission I identify with, terrific students, and great faculty collaborators. One of the things I lost was sufficient professional development funding. I haven’t attended an out-of-state conference in almost three years, and while I miss my professional community, I wouldn’t trade this job for anything.

    If any artists are interested in collaborating on such a project, please contact me. Last week I attended the Arts in a Digital World Summit in Montréal. The event launched the four-year funding program of $88.5 million aimed at amplifying “the quality, scale and sharing of Canadian art through digital technology” One aspect of this fund that gives me confidence is the desire to fund many small projects of around $10,000 and also the willingness to invest in risky projects.

    We also talked about the benefits of collaboration, and knowing your audience. It varied, but it seemed like there was some of that, there was also a fair bit of both collaboration at least at certain points, and some iterative testing. I attended a recent Meetup of the Bay Area Learning Design & Technology, and it led to some insights. As context, this is a group that meets in the evening maybe once or every other month or so.

    Early makers of enterprise social networks such as Jive, Newsgator, and Socialtext blazed the trail initially, making it possible for workers to engage in truly open and self-organizing collaboration by adapting the social networking model that had worked so well in the consumer world to the enterprise.

    Sharing includes exchanging resources, ideas, and experiences with our networks as well as collaborating with our colleagues. Notice on the model the use of two related terms: cooperation and collaboration. Collaboration is working together for a common purpose. The challenge for working in today’s networked economy is to connect cooperation and collaboration. When collaboration is required, then constraints are necessary to get work done.

    And here I mean more self-directed and collaborative learning conducted not formally, but facilitated. Important technologies are for communicating and collaborating, as well as tools to search and find resources. For a number of years now (at least six ), I’ve been beating the drum about the need for organizations to be prepared to address change. I’ve argued that things are happening faster, and that organizations are going to have to become more agile.

    I have more faith that thousands of cooperating individuals, with all their inherent complexity, can create better structures than a group collaborating under the direction of a positional leader. Are networks the new companies ? Can our markets shift from capitalism to cooperativism ? Can our institutions become networks? Can any of us escape our tribal roots and become network era citizens of the world? We still lack good network models for organizing in society.

    Communication and collaboration is key! I was in a conversation with my colleague Charles Jennings about organizational innovation, and one of the topics that arose was that of barriers to successful organizational function. In particular, we were talking about how the division of responsibility between organizational development (OD), leadership development, and learning & development is a problem. And I think the problem is bigger.

However, my focus has been specifically on what L&D can be doing (as that’s the folk I mostly talk to). But it occurs to me that it really goes farther.
