  • 5. These are the components of the‘unique’ Learning Environment that AIESEC should have. Implementing AIESEC XP | Our Learning Environment | © AIESEC International 2005
  • 6. What makes a learning organization different from other organizations is howunique & different it’s learning environment is. Implementing AIESEC XP | Our Learning Environment | © AIESEC International 2005
  • 7. All these 6 components need tobecome the core of AIESEC activity in each of our LCs, all around the AIESEC network. This gives a framework to LC activities for @XP implementation. Implementing AIESEC XP | Our Learning Environment | © AIESEC International 2005
  • 8. In the current context ofIndividual discovery and reflection AIESEC, these 3 components are already T present in most of ourTeam Experiences LCs. But they need to go through a little bit of a transformation. Conferences and Seminars Implementing AIESEC XP | Our Learning Environment | © AIESEC International 2005
  • 9. Mentoring And these 3 components are largely missing or inconsequential in their scope, in the LCs acrossLearning Circles the network and need to come into the mainstream of AIESEC.

  • 11. Individual Discovery and ReflectionThis diagram shows the formal steps that anindividual takes through the AIESECExperience. It has been carefully designed asa self-driven structured learning experience.All members go through a formalintroduction to the organization and thenbegin to take on responsibility in an area oftheir interest.They then have the option to take onleadership positions, work abroad throughour internship program, or both.The final step is to head for the future – totake the skills, inspiration, and networksfrom AIESEC to have a positive impact insociety.

  • 12. Individual Study and Reflection “Even if we know little about what goes on in the human brain, we do know some of the mental processes involved in learning. It is human nature that people do not want to be spoon-fed conclusions made by others. They want to be provided with the relevant information and the opportunity to build their own big-picture understanding, in order to draw these conclusions themselves. People do this through exploration, interaction and dialogue. Celemi applies the "learning spiral" – a basic framework for a solutions flow. This ensures that participants will reach their "Aha!" moments that will lead them to appropriate conclusions and actions.” http://www.celemi.com/learningdesign/approach/index.php Implementing AIESEC XP | Our Learning Environment | © AIESEC International 2005
  • 13. Individual Study and Reflection Why personal development is so cool? “Our lives are spent in understanding ourselves” Implementing AIESEC XP | Our Learning Environment | © AIESEC International 2005
  • 14. Individual Study and Reflection Some key @XP principles are the basis of Individual Study & Reflection. 1. Take an active role in your learning and the learning of others 2. Constantly challenge your worldview 3. Regular personal reflection & meta-cognition 4. Increase, both your practical and theoretical knowledge Implementing AIESEC XP | Our Learning Environment | © AIESEC International 2005
  • 15. UnderstandingTeam Experiences T Implementing AIESEC XP | Our Learning Environment | © AIESEC International 2005
  • 16. T The Team aspect of our Learning Environment has a two objectives. – To add value to AIESEC in expanding our organizational capacity and results. – To provide team members an opportunity to apply their learning & gain some desired experiences, skills, networks and practical knowledge in their area of interest.Team Experiences Implementing AIESEC XP | Our Learning Environment | © AIESEC International 2005
  • 17. Teams are the basis of our current organizational structure (X-teams, project teams, EBs, MCs etc.). Essentially, from the first to the last step of an individuals experience in AIESEC is taken within a team. Teams also bring to light the critical aspect of ‘learning by doing’. Our teams need to be the hub of enterprise in the organization, where we move away from the current rigidity of structures and create space for innovation and activity on the basis of an individual interest.Team Experiences T Implementing AIESEC XP | Our Learning Environment | © AIESEC International 2005
  • 18. Team Experiences T AIESEC Team Experiences build on 2 @XP principles. Increase, both your practical and theoretical knowledge The very basis of the AIESEC eXPerience – learning by doing. Create a network of contacts for yourself Implementing AIESEC XP | Our Learning Environment | © AIESEC International 2005
  • 19. UnderstandingLearning Circles Implementing AIESEC XP | Our Learning Environment | © AIESEC International 2005
  • 20. AIESEC Learning Circles are local learning communities. Theyare formed by local and international AIESECers who share acommon interest in gaining experience, knowledge andnetworks in a common sector or topic. Eg. Human Rights The Learning Circles are not static or formal structures. They re- arrange themselves around the content that is being experienced, discussed and the other individuals participating. Learning Circles can have different focuses- they can be groups of mixed experience, or they may be “generations” of members from a similar level. Learning Circles Implementing AIESEC XP | Our Learning Environment | © AIESEC International 2005
  • 21. People may be part of more than one and attendance is based on interest. Longer-term structures can be established based on interest and commitment, e.g. a weekly casual meeting around a LN topic. This process can be facilitated by a more experienced member – especially for a Learning Circle of a generation of “Introduction” Stage AIESECers. More experienced groups may require only rotating or shared facilitation.Learning Circles Implementing AIESEC XP | Our Learning Environment | © AIESEC International 2005
  • 22. Learning Circles AIESEC Learning Circles are “Peer to Peer” learning environments, which build on 2 key AIESEC XP principles. Take an active role in your learning & the learning of others – each of us has something to teach & something to learn. We take responsibility for each others development. Constantly challenge your world view – challenging our assumptions & understanding.Implementing AIESEC XP | Our Learning Environment | © AIESEC International 2005
  • 23. How can exploration of ideas aroundtopics of interest in ‘learning circles’ leadto ‘team experiences’ and contribute toorganizational activity & performance? An example… Implementing AIESEC XP | Our Learning Environment | © AIESEC International 2005

  • 27. AIESEC holds over 350 national & international conferences every year! These conferences currently serve as a major organizational activity support. At many of these conferences, and in many local events, AIESEC invites speakers to challenge us with their understanding and perspective. This expertise, whether from alumni, partners or members themselves, provide great opportunities for our membership to gain high quality information and to engage our stakeholders in our learning environment.Conferences and Seminars Implementing AIESEC XP | Our Learning Environment | © AIESEC International 2005
  • 28. We also need to reach out & create extensive opportunities for our membership to participate in external conferences & seminars organized by partner or other organizations. This would go a long way in broadening the perspective of our membership & would allow them to look at things, which are currently outside the realms of AIESEC’s operations.Conferences and Seminars Implementing AIESEC XP | Our Learning Environment | © AIESEC International 2005

  • 31. Our lives are spent in understanding ourselves! Mentorship is most important in this process. The key to the process is to remove the individual from his/her comfort zone enough to help them gain objectivity over themselves but not to scare the individual off. Often a team manager is not in the position, or capable of this type of leadership and an external mentor must be sought.Mentoring Implementing AIESEC XP | Our Learning Environment | © AIESEC International 2005
  • 32. All AIESEC members should be educated on the principles of effective mentoring. Mentoring pairs may form between members of varying experience, with Alumni and Partners. Whether they are the more experienced “mentor” or the “actor”, AIESEC should always help shape the content and process of mentoring.Mentoring Implementing AIESEC XP | Our Learning Environment | © AIESEC International 2005
  • 33. Mentoring Mentoring, just like Learning Circles, creates a “Peer to Peer” learning environment, which builds on 2 key AIESEC XP principles. Take an active role in your learning & the learning of others – each of us has something to teach & something to learn. We take responsibility for each others development. Constantly challenge your world view – challenging our assumptions & understanding.Implementing AIESEC XP | Our Learning Environment | © AIESEC International 2005
  • 34. Mentoring One of the most challenging and rewarding experiences in AIESEC is being responsible to support the development of another individual. You must take this responsibility seriously and treasure it. Investment in and the development of excellent people is fundamental to the success of our organisation and the future of our world.Implementing AIESEC XP | Our Learning Environment | © AIESEC International 2005
