Charting collective knowledge: Supporting learning in the workplace

  1. 1. Charting collective knowledge: Supporting self-regulated learning in the workplace Anoush Margaryan Lecturer in Learning Technology Shell Research Fellow Caledonian Academy, Glasgow Caledonian University Collaborators: Prof. Allison Littlejohn and Dr Colin Milligan Glasgow Caledonian University, UK http://www.slideshare.net/anoush The slides are licensed under Creative Commons Attribution-Non-Commercial-Share Alike 3.0 Unported Licence
  2. 2. “Now, we own the means of production--it's in our heads. It's what we know and can do. Do we really want to turn that over to the organization to decide? Or do we want to be the people who say `I'm going to take charge of my own learning. I'm going to be curious and pay attention to what's changing and where things are going and I'm going to pro-actively prepare myself for those things, regardless of whether or not the organization tells me I need to learn this.` We shouldn't be waiting to receive permission or be empowered. We should be seizing that power and doing everything with it that we can“ Michelle Martin, The Bamboo Project
  3. 3. Emergent work practices: Bricolage, patchworking Emergent environments: Distributed, dynamically- changing, technologically-mediated, complex or chaotic Emergent capabilities: self-regulation, self- organisation, operating in ill-defined domains & across geographic boundaries, networking, peering, sharing Emergent technologies: social, adaptive, intuitive
  4. 4. What behaviours/capabilities do individuals require to operate in an open/ networked society ? How can collective knowledge be used by individuals and to support learning? How can individuals make sense of distributed, collective knowledge to support new learning and work patterns? What sorts of adaptive technology tools can support the use of collective knowledge?
  5. 5. Collective knowledge – the aggregation of information, knowledge and artefacts COLLECTIVE residing in people, KNOWLEDGE communities, networks, practices that is accessible through the web.
