1: Medlemsmøte 25. august i Tromsø

Vårt neste medlemsmøte er som tidligere annonsert satt til 25. august. Denne gangen vil møtet bli holdt sammen med våre medlemmer fra OL byen Tromsø. Vi har satt sammen et meget interesant program og håper flest mulig har anledning til å komme. Vi begynner med et sosialt program om ettermiddagen den 24. For påmelding kontakt Veslemøy Barnes på epost. Veslemoy.barnes@invanor.no


2: The Future of Learning Technology

Denne historien har vi klippet fra Chief Learning Officer.
There is a good deal of confusion over where to bet the budget—and sometimes, one’s career—in the world of corporate online learning. Conflicting visions of the future collide in turbulent whitewater as powerful new streams of change and technology intersect. We yearn for a less volatile, more sustainable business-learning model with predictable, enterprise-related outcomes. We seek guidance in the integration of disparate technologies and divergent sources of knowledge and information. And we need more than vaporous descriptions of a better future. What we require is a crisp picture of an investment-friendly future and a good road map to get us there one step at a time.
The good news is that quite a few people are teasing both a sustainable solution and a coherent map out of the chaos, and they are discovering that our challenges—both technological and pedagogical—appear to come packaged with their own built-in solutions. The chicken and egg are present simultaneously, causing disruption on the one hand while offering salvation on the other.

3: The Power of Informal Learning

Denne artikkelen er også klippet fra siste nummer av Chief Learning Officer.
With the dramatic decline in traditional classroom training, the increased popularity of e-learning and the emergence of a more project-based and outcome-driven learning model, it’s important to take a look at the type of learner we are trying to serve and the methods of learning many are migrating toward. I have always felt that the learners are way ahead of many of us in the training industry when it comes to what meets their instructional needs. Because of how hard we work at developing and scaling our learning programs, we’re often not the most responsive and flexible group when it comes to change. The reality of living in today’s economic and technological times is that change comes quicker and more frequently than ever. Training as an industry tends to move and adapt at a much slower pace. Although the pedagogical methods we’ve worked on for years are instructionally sound and defendable, they can quickly become outdated and ineffective as our students adapt their learning to fit today’s complex work environment.

4: Performance Improvement Through Relationship Building

Fra siste nummer av TD magazine har vi hentet denne artikkelen.
What is the simplest way to improve organizational performance? Build better relationships between people. Yet, organizations aren’t able to keep their employees satisfied because the relationships between the entities aren’t strong enough.
 
What leaders must remember is that there are three relationships that they have to develop. Those relationships grow by an understanding of mutual interests and needs, and must be linked to business results.

Organization to customer. The organization strengthens the connection with its customers through learning solutions and performance improvement technology so that the organization meets customers’ needs.
Customer to employee. Train to strengthen this relationship by providing a learning experience for employees that focuses not only on features, benefits, and processes, but also on the “What’s in it for me?” factor.
Employee to organization. This connection is fortified by formal training, such as creating a performance management system tied to leadership dimensions.
 
Ultimately, organizations need to recognize, reward, and measure success effectively, while extinguishing behaviors leading to repeated failure.

5: Nytt og nyttig

E is for Error.
Dette er tittelen The Guardian bruker for å beskrive det britiske e-Universitetet UKeU. Denne satsningen på et felles e-Universitet er kjent for oss gjennom en god presentasjon på vår studietur til London i 2002, se forøvrig presentasjonen på våre websider under møter, studieturer og London 2002.
 
Bakgrunnen for artikkelen i The Guardian er at denne felles britiske satsningen på e-Universitet er historie og at de nå jobber med å redusere tapene og æren. UKeU hadde ambisjoner om å bygge verdens beste e-Universitet og har brukt opp en god del penger på å nå målet. Men de lyktes ikke i å tiltrekke seg nok studenter eller privat kapital.
