    Infolit guru Professor Christine Bruce is giving a "salon conversation" Informed learning: a narration on 26 October 2017 at 11am-12 noon local (Toowoomba, Australia) time (which I think is 2am-3am UK time). In this salon conversation, Christine Bruce, author of Informed Learning, will read the narratives underpinning the book's chapters. The intention is to reveal the narrative thread which reflects a journey of the scholarship of learning and teaching.

    [Learning] The ballad of the sad instruction librarian
    In my first job, I was thrown into the deep end with zero support and am sure I did a crappy job early on, especially since all of my classes in college had been lecture-focused so I didn’t have any models for active learning-style classes. Over time, I read books and articles and tried to learn as much as I could about how to be an effective instructor.

    [Learning] Radical Coherency
    This is a learning organization, but one that’s integrating many disparate elements. 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. Except that the wavelengths are aligned and focused.

    [Learning] Simple Insufficiency
    And, like most meta-learning , it needs to be done around something. 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? Because the solution is complex. Organizations are complex organisms.

    [Learning] the future of work is perpetual beta
    Instead of formal training, people will need to learn while working with others. They will have to be continuously learning, socially and informally. Automation is a force that is continuously changing the nature of human work. First it replaced brute force with powerful machines, changing the nature of agriculture, mining, construction, and other fields of human activity. Then automated programs replaced simple work like withdrawing money from a bank account.

    [Learning] In Digital Transformation, The Art-of-the-Possible and Average Practice Are Diverging
    This herd mentality of digital actually has numerous causes: Proven best practices for digital are too few and far between, successful experiments are often hoarded for competitive motivations, digital innovators by definition take on often untenable risks we’d prefer to avoid, and perhaps most of all, we are still trying to get used to the rapid pace of learning that digital requires to stay abreast. This is through scalable learning.

    [Learning] So I was, at least partly, wrong
    That is, causing learners to search for information they don’t have somehow makes the memory traces more susceptible to successful learning subsequently. And this also makes the case stronger, in my mind, for problem-based learning. A number of years ago, I wrote that pre-testing learners was user abusive (with a caveat). My argument was sensible, qualified, but apparently wrong. Now that I’ve more of the story, it’s time to rectify my mistake.

Organizational engineering is a phrase that popped to mind (similar to learning engineering). In addition to systems thinking and and decision-making, there’s an emphasis on organizational learning and on coaching, so it appears more human-focused.

Students with lower self efficacy avoid active learning and are less inclined to develop IL. Doctors must contiually engage in evidence based practice, and so need skills for lifelong learning, including IL.

I know VR’s cool, and has real learning potential, but there you have to create the context.
