Formalizing Informal Learning Free Tools from Training Magazine Network Presentation Transcript

  • 1. Formalizing Informal Learning Training Magazine Network Free Tools to Enable Informal Learning & Organizational Business Intelligence Exchange & Capture What is Training Magazine Network?
  • 2.
    • The concept of “formalizing” informal learning isn’t to remove informality or the value of the informal exchange of information.
    • Formalizing means bringing informal learning within a formal structure, where the information exchange and consequent learning can be captured for the review and application of others.
    • Formalizing Informal Learning is to...
        • Enable sharing of information with those who weren’t participants at the time
        • Enable more members to “join the conversation” synchronously and asynchronously
        • Capture the collective business intelligence of the organization
  • 3.
    • Training Magazine Network provides members with a free web-based and hosted application designed to:
        • Capture formal and informal communication
        • Promote the application and sharing of learning
        • Track the measurable results of applying training and learning
        • Enable all members to contribute and exchange information and content through

          • online coaching system
          • tools to enable sharing of learnings and results
  • 4. There are few systems designed specifically for this purpose. In most cases, organizations are struggling to patch together Facebook, Ning and other applications that weren’t designed to support learning to accomplish these outcomes. In addition, organizations place themselves at legal risk when using applications not designed to protect employee privacy. As privacy policies change – as in the Facebook debacle – businesses may find themselves at risk where they were once safe from exposure to liability claims.
