Delivery Models for Learning

Learning / Presentations

Marcel de Leeuwe, Ruud Smeulders and I hosted a Masterclass on Learning Business Models at the Dutch E-learning Event. TU Delft’s Pieter de Vries has written a solid report (in Dutch) about this session: De waarde van Online Learning gezien door de ogen van Board members. You can find the Dutch slides from the session on SlideShare: I particularly like how Ruud adjusted the ubiquitous Business Model Canvas to be suitable for learning business models […]

Changing the Responsibility for Learning

Articles / Learning / Presentations

Last week has been a busy week with both the E-learning Event and a webinar for En Nu Online. I’ll share some of the presentations that I did in this short post. Based on my presentation at last year’s E-learning Event I was interviewed by the Tijdschrift voor Coaching about culture and the quantified self. You can read a PDF of the Dutch interview by clicking the image below: Marcel de Leeuwe and I hosted […]

Self Organized Learning Environments: An Assignment

Learning / Presentations

This post is an assignment for the participants of the “Sociale media voor Leren en Veranderen in Organisaties en Netwerken”-leergang by En Nu Online. (Click here to get a Google Translated Dutch version of this post). Last February Sugata Mitra was awarded the TED prize for 2013. The prize money will help him carry out his wish: My wish is to help design the future of learning by supporting children all over the world to […]

Learning. Who is responsible?

Learning / Presentations

Just now I delivered a keynote at the 20th Annual Israeli Learning Conference. I was there at the kind invitation of HR Israel and Amir Elion. My talk was pitched as follows: Over the next few years the role of the learning organization will shift, moving away from the current focus on course and curriculum design. Two new responsibilities will appear: 1. Supporting individuals with their self-directed learning and 2. Creating behavioral change interventions for […]

Will it Blend? Blended Learning and Quality

Learning / Presentations

A few days ago I presented at a teacher’s conference at the Hogeschool Utrecht (HU) on the topic of Blended Learning and Quality. Naturally I started the talk with one of the Will it blend? videos: I then referenced the seven problems that are written up by Kapp and O’Driscoll in Learning in 3D. Blended learning could be seen as a way to fix some of these problems. You do this through sound instructional design […]

Werken = Leren & Leren ≠ Werken

Learning / Moodle / Presentations

Today I keynoted the Dutch Moodlemoot (mootnl12). I talked about how current times force us to let go of curricula, why it is more important than anything else to teach students how to learn, what it means to work in a knowledge society (work becomes synonymous with learning) and what this might mean for a virtual learning environment like Moodle. Unfortunately this talk was in Dutch and so will be the accompanying blogpost. De slides […]

The Quantified Self and What it Means for Learning

Innovation / Learning / Presentations

In early April I presented (in Dutch) at the e-Learning Event about the quantified self and learning. I have now translated the slides into English as I think the topic is important enough. The presentation explains (in five parts) why the quantified self movement will have big consequences for how we will learn in the future. You can download a full resolution PDF file, watch a video (with slides) in Dutch or watch it on SlideShare: […]

Learning from the Outside, How External Focus Can Help Learning and Development

Innovation / Learning / Open / Presentations

This presentation delivered on April 19 for the Irish Centre for Business Excellence Network tries to address why things are not changing fast enough in the (corporate) learning world by pointing out that we often fail to look to the outside. We rely on benchmarking without realising that this will never get us ahead of the game. We try to implement best practices rather than focus on emergent practice. Changing this requires finding our edge […]

Dutch Presentation about the Quantified Self (Leren is Meten Weten)

Innovation / Learning / Presentations

I presented the following keynote (in Dutch) at the the e-Learning Event 2012 (an English version of this message is available here): Deze presentatie legt in vijf delen uit waarom de trend om jezelf te meten (quantified self) grote gevolgen gaat hebben voor hoe wij in de toekomst gaan leren (je kunt de presentatie ook als PDF downloaden en dan werken de overlay quotes bij de foto’s wel of je kunt een opname van de hele keynote […]
