Modern Digital Learning Skills

man-335401_640(1)Next public workshop to be scheduled

The emerging workplace requires “learning workers” rather than “knowledge workers”, that is individuals who are “professional learners” and see this role as important as doing their job. But in this fast moving age, “learning” is no longer just about studying existing bodies of knowledge and acquiring existing skills (in formal courses) but adopting a set of learning strategies to “learn the new” and constantly discover new ideas, new thinking, new resources in order to stay up to date in your industry or profession. It’s also about evidencing what you have learned in order to promote yourself to (an existing or future) employer.

(You can read the rationale for these new skills at Modern Learning Skills for the Networked Age.)

This workshop is suitable for

Anyone who wants to acquire or refine their own modern digital learning strategies, and/or for educators and workplace learning professionals who want to consider how to help others (students, employees) to do so too.

Agenda

Week 1: LEARNLOGGING: Recording and evidencing your own learning
Week 2: NETWORKING: Growing your personal learning network (PLNl)
Week 3: LEARNING THE NEW: Keeping up to date with professional interests
Week 4: KEEPING TRACK: Managing information overload and connecting the dots

About this workshop

Please note this is not a traditional online course. As it is hosted on our social platform, think of it more as a place for socializing, relationship building and learning from one another – rather than an online classroom! Each week I will release a set of reading and practical activities, and you are invited to work through them as best suits you and fits in with your working life, and then share your thinking and work with the group. Although nothing is compulsory, you will find that the more you “learn out loud” with the other participants, the more you will get out of the workshop. Also note, that all the activities are asynchronous. You will probably want to commit a couple of hours a week for this workshop, but once again it is up to you how much time you devote to it. Jane Hart will be your Learning Guide in this workshop
