Harold Jarche, Charles Jennings, Clark Quinn & Jay Cross on Challenges and Misconceptions of Collaborative and Social Learning in the Workplace (Part I)
Filed Under Industry Experts
The Internet Time Alliance is a newly branded international think tank formed by six training industry luminaries: Harold Jarche, Jay Cross, Clark Quinn, Charles Jennings, Jane Hart, and Jon Husband. In this podcast, we talk to four of the principals about this unique initiative and their perspectives on collaborative and social learning in the workplace.
This dream team aims high and isn’t afraid to turn conventional thinking on its head in order to help training organizations innovate. As far as the Internet Time Alliance is concerned, we are seeing the end of the training department as we knew it only a few years ago. As work becomes more complex, training is now less about developing content and more about developing networks.
The team discusses that while CLOs recognize that they have to embrace networks, informal learning, and social technologies, there are still a number of misconceptions and obstacles that prevent collaborative learning from being an organic part of the enterprise training infrastructure. Once these social initiatives are embraced however, CLOs and their training organizations are poised to have equal or even greater footing than other executives in the C-suite.
This podcast is broken up into 5 parts. Each part comprises a panel discussion around a specific topic. This post is part I. Listen to the discussion below or jump next to part II.
- Can you each tell us a little bit about the Internet Time Alliance initiative and how you manage collaboration and knowledge sharing within the group?
