In late October I will be attending Elliott Masie’s Learning 2012.
This year Marcel de Leeuwe and I will be hosting a learning lab session which is described as follows:
Facilitating “DIY” (Do-It-Yourself) Learning
Only knowledge workers themselves really know what their jobs entail, which makes providing learning for them increasingly difficult. The level of connectedness in our world and the abundance of suitable technical tools now allow these workers to organize many parts of their own learning. So, what is our role as learning professionals in this new world of “DIY” learning? We can empower our employees to create those tailored learning experiences!
- Examples of self-organized learning from surprising places, like MOOCs, Edupunk, the world of juggling and social media in corporations
- The principles behind facilitating self-organized learning
- Create your own high-level design for a self-organized learning event
It would be great if you could make it to the session. You are more than welcome! Also, I am always interested to meet new people in the world of learning and (open) technology, so do reach out to me if you would like to have a chat in Orlando. I am especially interested in truly innovative uses of learning analytics and networked learning (i.e. a Connectivist pedagogy).
