Communities of Practice have become a bit of buzzword in corporate training recently; everyone seems to be setting them up. I've been running online communities (of different types) for many years now, and it's important to point out that it requires a different set of skills to set one up and support one than to create a piece of e-learning! What's more, if done properly, it requires a significant time investment in terms of maintaining it on an ongoing basis.... Continue reading

I'm very discriminating in that I don't just share everything I come across, but only share things that say something new or different about the current or future state of learning in the workplace or education. At the end of the month I aggregate these links in my 2014 Reading List and review them, selecting my MUST READs for the month. If you've not got... Continue reading

In my last post I wrote how for many people the way to move their organisation from outdated, traditional training practices towards modern approaches to learning was not to take the “big bang” approach but make small, incremental changes. In this post I want to look at what that means by first considering the disconnect between current (face-to-face and online) training practices and the way many are now learning. Continue reading
