    We can use machine learning to train a system on a historical database (watching out for bias). Instead, what works best is expert models that have been abstracted across dialog and practice.

In the January 2017 issue of Inside Learning Technologies , I discussed personal mastery and mental models. The key challenge for learning professionals today is to help their enterprises become learning organisations, as described in Senge’s book. Companies today need to become network-centric and especially learning-centric. First we have to learn together.

    With little routine work to do, organizations have to learn as fast as their environments. In this environment everyone is learning and everyone is teaching by example. Learning at Work.

    Here are some thoughts about learning that I developed on this blog the past year. All of these require practice in a contextual social setting to gain mastery, which our schools do not offer either. In a networked society, learning has to be integrated into life, not just into school. Our education systems need to drop the whole notion of subjects and content mastery and move to process-oriented learning. More : check out serendipitous drip-fed learning.

At the 70:20:10 Institute [disclosure: I am a service partner], the basic approach is to start with the 70 (experience) because this is where learning and working are most connected. When we learn as we work, at the moment of need, then we learn in context and we remember what we have learnt.

    In general, in a learning experience stretching out over days (as spaced learning would suggest), learners want to regularly get feedback about how they’re doing. In workplace learning, at times we can get by with auto-assessment, particularly if we use coaching beyond the learning event. Yet if it matters, we’d rather them practice things that matter before they actually are used for real work. It’s not ideal, but it’s practical.

    Creative learning is for us what productivity meant during the industrial age. Creative learning is the human edge that separates us from machines, also in the future. Creative learning is the fundamental process of socialization and being human. Perhaps, in the future, it will no longer be meaningful to conceptualize work as jobs or even as organizational (activity) structures in the manner practiced by the firms of today. Work should always equal learning.

    Servant leaders help to set the context around them and build consensus around emergent practices. This means shifting the focus from analyzing situations, to making constant experiments and learning from them. Organizations face more complexity in the type of work they do, the problems they face, and the markets they interact with. This is due to increasing connections between everyone and everything.
