Myths & Truths: Summary

On February 4, 2010 the topic for #lrnchat was Myths & Truths about Training and Learning. Nothing scientific, just fun. A group self organized to pull out the responses and they are posted in the following pages.

Myths about Training | Myths about Learning
Truths about Training
| Truths about Learning

For the purpose of this exercise (and #lrnchat in general), I put forth the following definitions — if not perfect, at least to serve as a place to start.

Training (teaching too) as an “outside in” activity, the part of the equation that focuses on the delivery. Learning is the “inside out” part, that originates from the learner’s desire or need to know.

Enjoy!

    [...] (From Ning to Amplify) < Back in February 2010, I approached Marcia Conner (@marciamarcia) and asked if I could help compile the Myths & Truths Summary for #lrnchat. With her approval and the support from the #lrnchat community itself, we wrestled with the twitter transcript which spanned some 60 pages. The team of editors worked really hard to produce this document, which in my opinion, is one of best resources for the training and learning field… hope you find it useful too :-) Clipped from lrnchat.wordpress.com [...]

    Agree w. Calum.

  5. Rick Scott Says:

    I am concerned about who made decisions (value judgments?) about what is included here. Some active voices and important ideas have been cut out altogether. I am sure someone had a good reason for doing this, but my first reaction is, “Shame on you!”

    • Calum Scott Says:

      Dear #Lrnchat – I’m not sure what Rick’s problem is, but I found the work completed on this transcript to be first class. It appears from the list of names above that seven independent people edited the document – it must have been quite some ordeal to have dissected such a transcript in such a short time, and if they missed a few tweets (horror) from thousands, huh, some people are hard to please, really! I would like to personally thank those who worked (for free) to help the #lrnchat and wider learning community; your hard work is truly appreciated.
