    Last week I had the opportunity to attend the inaugural meeting of the Global Learning Council. While not really global in either sense (little representation from overseas nor from segments other than higher ed), it was a chance to refresh myself in some rigor around learning sciences. And one thing that struck me was folks talking about learning engineering. For one, the value of models in learning. Another was, of course, the value of spacing practice.

    In thinking through what makes experiences engaging, and in particular making practice engaging, I riffed on some core elements. In general, good practice is having the learner make decisions in context. If it’s too easy, they’re bored and little learning occurs. If it’s too difficult, it’s frustrating and again little learning occurs.

    We released our first white paper, on Social Learning , at the Collaborative Enterprise last week. For me, the essence of social learning is that as our work becomes more complex, we need faster feedback loops to stay on top of it. Courses, with their long development cycle, are inadequate to meet the learning and performance needs of those dealing with complexity. Constantly evolving with technology, this way of learning is naturally “nimble”.

    [Learning, Practice] A learning meta-story
    Been thinking about how to generate meaningful learning in optimal (read: concise but effective) ways. And a lot of what I’ve been thinking about involves contextualized meaningful practice (no surprise there, eh?). This means that you need people in the learning loop; totally asynchronous isn’t going to work to develop rich capabilities.

    [Learning, Practice] innovation means learning at work
    Innovation and Learning. Workplaces that enable the constant narration of work and learning in a trusted space can expose more implicit knowledge. A culture of innovation can be created by changing daily behaviours, which the practice of PKM can do. The connection between innovation and learning is evident. We can’t be innovative unless we integrate learning into our work. Testing new knowledge is where communities of practice can be handy.

    [Learning, Practice] Thinking through performing and learning
    That includes not only the performance skills but also meta-learning, and I decided it was also time to take another stab at capturing the concept as a graphical representation. Here, I start with the hermeneutic notion of how we act in the world and learn. We start with things well-practiced, but if we have a problem, a breakdown, we look for an answer. Then we get into meta-learning. So, in light of my last post on social learning, what do you think about this?

    We are moving into an age of augmented work where much of the value we create is intangible, the knowledge we require to work is implicit, and most of this will be learned informally, outside the classroom. We will need new organizational models, new decision-making models, new personal practices, new mind-sets, new vocabularies, and new strategies in order to create the world we crave. We need to put a high priority on not only learning, but unlearning and relearning as well.

    [Learning, Practice] Working and Learning Out Loud
    Learning out loud takes you to a different level; one that may seem even more precarious. Helping make space, such as communities of practice, is an essential first step in enabling working out loud, and most importantly, reaping its benefits. Working and learning out loud are integral parts of personal knowledge mastery. Trusted spaces, like communities of practice, give us a place to take half-baked ideas and test them out, with minimal risk.
