The skillset of a blended trainer or facilitator: technology is overrated

Joitske Hulsebosch

This week I co-organized the #Trainingtrends2018 session in Utrecht (the Netherlands) with some 90 participants. It was fun. Amazing that we are already working on blended designs for 10 years and for some this a really new area. I think the change is relatively slow because it is shift in mindset.

Bookreviews Kevin Kelly: mind artificial intelligence, attention and quantified self

Joitske Hulsebosch

I read two books by Kevin Kelly about technology, one on my kindle and one on paper (not the same book by the way :). The first was What technology wants ; the second the Inevitable. I found both through Twitter. Now that I think about it: I get most of the book tips via my Twitter network.

Learning poses or learning to model?

Joitske Hulsebosch

Every Monday evening at 20.30 I install myself in front of the television with my daughter for a program called Hollands Next Topmodel, to continue with Models in Paris: The real life. My husband doesn't like it at all, but I really enjoy a view into a completely different world.

March was my month of exploring virtual reality for learning and development.

Joitske Hulsebosch

We are the proud owners of 10 Virtual Reality (VR) cardboard glasses. We use them in our learning trajectory. However, we get stuck playing with a roller coaster and walking under the Eiffel Tower.

Three different views on social learning

Joitske Hulsebosch

I am not the first to note that social learning is a confusion concept. Every Friday there is an interesting #ldinsight Twitter chat. I joined one Friday when the topic was about social learning. I struggled going from my tweetchat back to twitter and hootsuite trying to keep up with replies :).

Why as an L&D professional you should even be interested in artificial intelligence

Joitske Hulsebosch

In our book Leren in tijden van tweets, apps en likes there is a clear call for people working with learning, change and innovation processes to dive into technology. Everyone sees that technology is increasingly taking an important place in our lives- even people who are not into technology.

I'm sliding and morphing

Joitske Hulsebosch

You possibly know the book by Lynda Gratton called the Shift ? It is about the future of work and she predicts that we will become increasingly serial masters instead of 'shallow generalist'. A master is someone with deep knowledge in a number of domains.

My first Squigl

Joitske Hulsebosch

I have made my first Squigl, a whiteboard animatie (these videos with drawings). You probably know them from RSA animate. Whiteboard animations are quite popular, but if you want a professional one, you will probably need over 1000 euros. This took me 3 hours of time to develop.

To conference or to unconference?

Joitske Hulsebosch

I was hesitating for a long time whether I would attend the L&D unconference , organized by Ger Driesen in collaboration with the L&D connect community. The unconference costs you a whole day of your time and follows the open space method. There was a theme: the future of L&D.

Online facilitation inspired by car dealers

Joitske Hulsebosch

We have recently bought a different car, a used car. We started with a search on the Internet. Then we went one afternoon to some dealers to watch the cars. We met the first salesman there. Fortunately he fully matched my preconceptions of a car salesman :).

Can you engage introverts in social learning?

Joitske Hulsebosch

Introverts love to stay indoors and have difficulties expressing themselves, while extraverts are outgoing and enjoy telling all their stories. That is the image we often have about intro/extraverts. How does this relate to social learning? Can introverts engage in social learning?

The happy selfscanner: lessons about introducing new technologies

Joitske Hulsebosch

My supermarket introduced self-scanners. I'm not someone who is at the forefront of any new technology. For instance I'm secretly against the microwave. Yet I've thrown myself into the self-scan adventure because it seemed a good experience.

A new focus for my blog: the new social learning

Joitske Hulsebosch

In 2005 I started this blog around communities of practices. It was a great way to investigate, learn and share my steep learning curve about communities online. I still love to work with communities (facilitate the LOSmakers), but somehow my work has become much wider.

This is my contribution to the blogcarnaval of the LOSmakers. The subject is online sharing of knowledge and experiences. " We all talk about online knowledge sharing, but who is really practising it? And if you don't why not? "

Book instead of blogposts

Joitske Hulsebosch

My last blogpost is almost 4 months ago. I admire people like Richard Millington who blog faster than I can read. The reason that I did not find the time to blog is that I have written a book with Sibrenne Wagenaar called 'Leren in tijden van tweets, apps en likes '.

Let's improve our learning language as learning professionals

Joitske Hulsebosch

If the Sami eskimos have 180 words for snow - how come we as learning professionals have only one word for learning? OK, we have learning and development (L&D) so we have two words. I think we are way too sloppy in talking about learning.

My social learning experiences

Joitske Hulsebosch

For a long time I organizing a blog carnival was on my bucket list and I finally took the plunge. I choose the topic: my example of social learning. Why this topic? I notice that there is a lot of confusion about social learning: is social learning about learning through social media?

Social learning circle- new ways of learning at a conference

Joitske Hulsebosch

Last Tuesday I've facilitated a so-called learning circle about social learning at the Next Learning conference in Den Bosch. I really like the idea behind a learning circle - a circle is composed of a group of people interested in the same topic but who do not know each other meet.

Multitasking, Ritalin and online mindfulness

Joitske Hulsebosch

I have watched a documentary about ''our distracted brain''. I hardly dare to say it outloud but in between watching the documentary I was chatting on Skype, answering emails. Nevertheless I enjoyed it and it made me think about singletasking and focus.
