    7. 7. 7 Wouter & Dennis: Informal learning Informal learning… - is everything that is learned outside of the classroom and the books - is a ‘byproduct' of working together - is a means to an end - cannot be predicted, but can be influenced and stimulated Stimulating Informal learning - Building internal networks of people (WHO, WHO knows WHAT) - Between colleagues: coaching and being coached - Learning together: bridging expertise-gap - Serious Gaming
    8. 8. 8 Our case ■ One of those projects was 95% focused on informal learning. ■ Installation and implementation of “Improvement Teams”. ■ An Improvement Team is a group of operators, together with a coach, taking up one of the many daily problems they are confronted with. ■ The groups works without hierarchy ■ The output is mainly focused on getting to know how to improve, less on the actual result ■ The coach is someone of the ‘overhead’, and plays a facilitating role ■ Idea behind the Improvement Teams: stimulating the brains who are attached to the hands of workers! “We used to push buttons, today we can solve problems!”
    9. 9. The process of a project A B•In a project we go from A to B within a specific time and budget •Although we discover some interesting side paths (but what about the times and means?) Creating an environment with room for possible side paths = Creating an environment full of informal learning
    10. 10. 10 ‘Speeddating’ - We give you 10 minutes to talk to 3 participants - The ‘whistle’ gives the signal to go talk to someone else Around the question: - What would you like to discover about informal learning? - What questions do you have about this case?
