Learning Layers at LearnTec 2015

  1. 1. http://Learning-Layers.eu Learning Layers Scaling up Technologies for Informal Learning in SME Clusters Learning Layers Andreas. P. Schmidt (Karlsruhe University of Applied Sciences) Christine Kunzmann (Pontydysgu Ltd.)
  2. 2. http://Learning-Layers.eu Informal Learning at the Workplace • Informal learning is the most common form of learning at the workplace, although not in the focus of HR development • It works well in smaller teams and companies, but has its limits when it comes to scaling • Informal learning takes place in personal learning networks, which are currently mainly face-to-face • Informal learning still makes little use of digital resources
  3. 3. http://Learning-Layers.eu Scaling Informal Learning 3
  4. 4. http://Learning-Layers.eu Trials in two sectors • Healthcare primary care in UK (Leeds/Bradford) • Construction training center and SMEs in North Germany
  5. 5. http://Learning-Layers.eu Learning Toolbox Learning Toolbox allows for the definition, use and reuse of flexible context related and multi-paged sets of tiles that connect dynamically into - Tools - Online services - Content - People 5
  6. 6. http://Learning-Layers.eu Learning Toolbox in action 6 Different tilesets can be made for different contexts and can be loaded into LTB manually or with help of sensors or QR-codes. Tiles can also be used to dynamically inject company-specific content like manuals etc. STÜ WA STÜ WA
  7. 7. http://Learning-Layers.eu Knowledge Maturing Maier & Schmidt 2014
  8. 8. http://Learning-Layers.eu LivingDocuments • Key idea promote knowledge maturing through enabling mixing of and transition between different phases • Indicators – turn towards a user-driven approach with personalized indicators – concepts: reliability, controversiality, maturity
  9. 9. http://Learning-Layers.eu LivingDocuments
  10. 10. http://Learning-Layers.eu Informal Learning and Trust • Trust is a major aspect to consider when scaling learning – towards informal situations: from trusting training providers to trusting (unknown) peers – towards larger networks: from trusting immediate contacts to extended networks
  11. 11. http://Learning-Layers.eu Trust 11
  12. 12. http://Learning-Layers.eu Trust indicators • Results about trust – Trust aggregates from various trustworthiness cues – Trust propagates across trust relationship types – Trust is even more critical for digital artefacts • Design implications: Indicators and recommendations – Trust used to personalize system behaviour – Trust and maturity cues particularly useful for collaborators outside the “inner circle”
  13. 13. http://Learning-Layers.eu Conclusions • Scaling informal learning needs to address three major aspects – How knowledge develops in networks – How trust forms and influences activities – How to cross and adapt to contexts • Co-design processes involving users at all stages are crucial
