Follow-up from the Leadership Learning Community Webinar

Nancy White

Last Monday I was a guest of the Leadership Learning Community for an short online gathering. Communities, Networks and Engagement: Finding a Place for Action. But what happens when we say “we’re building an online community” but few engage? My experience is that in communities where people care about what they are working with (the “domain”) they also care about quality and help weed out the “iffy” stuff.

Stimulating self-directed learning

Joitske Hulsebosch

We had quite some confusion this week going on about the concept of 'networked learning' during an interesting day with learning professionals. For some this is really about networking online through social media and learning a lot by connecting with other professionals online.

So many learning style tests, so little time.

Joitske Hulsebosch

I went looking for a learning style test for an online course. I thought a learning style test was a nice ramp up for an exercise where people had to blog about their own facilitator style - from the idea that it is good to know your own preferences and biases as a trainer/facilitator.

The Changing Role of the Learning Facilitator

Jenny Connected

There is an intense discussion going on in the CPsquare community at the moment about the work of learning facilitators. Quite a few members of the CPsquare community work independently as community facilitators or for an organisation. Others like myself, are members of CPsquare not so much because we work as community facilitators, but because we are interested in social learning theory and how people learn in communities of practice.

Ontology, epistemology and pedagogy of networked learning

Jenny Connected

This was the subject of one of the threads in the 4 th Networked Learning Hot Seat last week. I had difficulties relating to some of the ways in which networked learning was being discussed. In the first Hot seat it was defined by Peter Goodyear as: learning and teaching carried out largely via the Internet/Web which emphasises dialogical learning, collaborative and cooperative learning, group work, interaction with on-line materials, and knowledge production.
