I originally made this video for a collaborative group that I am a part of called the Fellowship of Open Spokes (http://openspokes.com), but I wanted to share it here because it is describing the shift we are currently considering. I wonder if we need to have a larger conversation about this shift and why it needs to be made.

  1. 1st – keep your hand on the wheel.  2nd – we make the shift by finding proof points and early adopters.  These will help establish a body of evidence that it works and that shows people what it looks like.  We then engage key stakeholders grass roots style.  We need to show people and we need to pay close attention to the messenger with each specific audience.

  5. In regards to Ben’s most dangerous video, I think that PL aligns well with adult learning theory.  I see “building from strengths” (asset-based approach) relating to drawing from one’s experiences-what do you already know, what do you bring to the table from your life experience(s).  Bringing in choice also aligns with adult learning theory and certainly can build buy in/ownership.  But going even further than just simple choices, giving learners the chance to create their own learning experience can give even more ownership.  I remember hearing about college professors who use a negotiated syllabus, where the learners give input on what they want/need to learn, how they’ll go about learning and what kind of assessments will be used.  Finally, Ben mentioned “asking questions of ourselves” which I see as reflective self-assessment-another valuable tool for learning.

  9. I appreciate your concern for my wellbeing. The group that I did this with certainly had similar things to say. I should probably not be cavalier with my driving habits. I’m kind of glad I didn’t show this one to my wife. 😉

    As for the content, I wonder if we might want to set up a TD&L meeting to discuss this shift and how we would like to frame it for others rather than just doing a “find and replace” on everything from Development to Learning.
