Another interesting piece from Kenneth Fee’s “Delivering E-Learning“, re the differing types of learning culture (p.29)
Creating an environment that encourages the development of personal and organisational goals in partnership with others.
Using visualisation or ‘internal pictures’ to help shape behaviour and decisions.
Winning group commitment by developing shared images of how the future should look.
Encouraging collective thinking and working, so that a group’s capacity to develop intelligence and ability is greater than the sum of its individual members’ talents.
Developing the ability to see the ‘big picture’ within an organisation, and understanding how changes in one part affect the whole system.
Empowering Learning through the use of E-Tools:
- They have greater choice over when they start e-learning
- They can learn at their own pace, at times and in places that suit them
- They can exercise greater choice over what they study, or at least what they prioritise
- They can choose the training inputs that best match their learning styles
- They themselves can contribute inputs to the learning process.
- They have access to the broadest range of resources, and some of the richest resources at that.
- And, contrary to conventional wisdom, they should have more opportunities for interaction.
