How to Create a Learning Culture in Organizations  July 1, 2012 – 11:22 am

Several excellent blog posts have recently come to my attention that, when combined, provide a how-to for creating a learning culture in organizations. One of these posts appears in Jane Hart’s blog, WorkGroup Learning in the Social Workplace. In this post, she writes that workplace learning is:

  1. Structured learning experiences (e.g., training) and informal learning experiences (e.g., communities of practice)
  2. Helping workers learn continuously on the job
  3. Peer-to-peer learning that is “lite on content and rich in interaction”
  4. An integral part of everything that is done in the organization, supported by technology and social networks
  5. Managed by learning professionals who facilitate both formal and informal learning experiences

Hart writes further that learning professionals should, therefore, take on a new role, that of “Enterprise Learning Community Managers.” I see this role a little differently. I think we need this role but learning professionals should teach all managers how to serve in this capacity. A learning culture needs every manager encouraging, facilitating, and holding people accountable for learning.

Buying Dreams

Buying Dreams:
Visions For A Better Future
by Michael Albert
LEFT ACTIVISTS ARE MOVED, first and foremost, by refusal to tolerate injustice. Still, a clear conception of improved social relations can help us understand injustices we oppose and visions, of more desirable futures can help sustain and orient struggles today. Well and good, but why should people activated by today'...mit only minor variations on oppressive themes. The set of possible human worlds is not one-dimensional and limited to the way we live today. We must keep thinking and talking about more desirable visions, and keep refining what we want. And it is important to keep strategizing about how to reach our goals. There is no other way to 'keep the dream alive.' And if the dream dies, there is nothing.
