Transcript – May 11, 2017: The Reluctant Learner

#lrnchat is an online chat over the social messaging service Twitter. It is held on Thursdays at 8:30-9:30pm ET/5:30-6:30pm PT. Participants are people interested in the topic of learning from one another and who want to discuss how to help other people learn in formal, informal, social and mobile ways. We aim to steer clear of topics that are more “training department” oriented and focus on how people learn, what they learn, and what we’re learning.  If you an idea for a topic that you would like to suggest for #lrnchat, please feel free to reach out to any of the Chat Hosts.

This Week’s Questions

  • What are some characteristics of a reluctant learner?
  • How does the reluctant learner disrupt learning?
  • What are some of the factors which distract learners from being fully engaged?
  • What are some risks associated with giving the learner a “sufficient level of control” when prompting engagement?
  • How can you make your own excitement for learning more contagious to others?
  • As a learner what do you do when you need to recharge or re-engage during a learning effort?

8:53 PM willconstantine @karadefrias @lrnchat Perhaps skeptic rather than recluse #lrnchat
8:53 PM kelly_smith01 Q2) No contribution, reluctant to collaborate, does not share accomplishments or knowledge gained #lrnchat

Transcript – May 4, 2017: Machine Learning

#lrnchat is an online chat over the social messaging service Twitter. It is held on Thursdays at 8:30-9:30pm ET/5:30-6:30pm PT. Participants are people interested in the topic of learning from one another and who want to discuss how to help other people learn in formal, informal, social and mobile ways. We aim to steer clear of topics that are more “training department” oriented and focus on how people learn, what they learn, and what we’re learning.  If you an idea for a topic that you would like to suggest for #lrnchat, please feel free to reach out to any of the Chat Hosts.

This Week’s Questions

  • How do you define machine learning?
  • What are the benefits of machine learning?
  • What are the potential downsides of machine learning?
  • What are the implications for human learning?
  • How will machine learning affect you and what do you need to do?
  • What is something that you learned tonight, will research further, or will try based on tonights discussion?

Transcript – February 23, 2017: The Interview

#lrnchat is an online chat over the social messaging service Twitter. It is held on Thursdays at 8:30-9:30pm ET/5:30-6:30pm PT. Participants are people interested in the topic of learning from one another and who want to discuss how to help other people learn in formal, informal, social and mobile ways. We aim to steer clear of topics that are more “training department” oriented and focus on how people learn, what they learn, and what we’re learning.  If you an idea for a topic that you would like to suggest for #lrnchat, please feel free to reach out to any of the Chat Hosts.

This Week’s Questions

  • Tell us about the last time you had to learn a new task. How did you go about learning it?
  • Tell us about the last time a someone rejected one of your ideas. How do you move on from the rejection?
  • What tools do you use to keep yourself organized? How do you use them?
  • Tell us about a project you worked on where failure was not an option. What steps did you take to ensure success?
  • Explain a recent mistake. What did you learn from it and how will you utilize that knowledge in the future?
  • How do you stay on top of developments/trends in your field?
  • When was the last time that you volunteered to expand your knowledge at work?
  • How do you get buy-in?What was the topic? Why

Transcript – February 16, 2017: Sensemaking

#lrnchat is an online chat over the social messaging service Twitter. It is held on Thursdays at 8:30-9:30pm ET/5:30-6:30pm PT. Participants are people interested in the topic of learning from one another and who want to discuss how to help other people learn in formal, informal, social and mobile ways. We aim to steer clear of topics that are more “training department” oriented and focus on how people learn, what they learn, and what we’re learning.  If you an idea for a topic that you would like to suggest for #lrnchat, please feel free to reach out to any of the Chat Hosts.

This Week’s Questions

  • What stories/myths can you point to that have shaped the “”world view”” at your workplace?
  • If stories are more fundamental than facts, how to you get new key facts or concepts heard and believed?
  • How can we help people become aware of their own personal narrative?
  • What tools do you use for sensemaking and storytelling?
  • What “”protocols”” would you want to see in human networks?
  • Imagine technology w/ main purpose of sharing present experiences & co-create knowledge. What would you do with this tech?
Please excuse the format of this week’s transcript as our typical capturing method experienced an error.

Transcript – February 9, 2017: Self-Directed Learning

#lrnchat is an online chat over the social messaging service Twitter. It is held on Thursdays at 8:30-9:30pm ET/5:30-6:30pm PT. Participants are people interested in the topic of learning from one another and who want to discuss how to help other people learn in formal, informal, social and mobile ways. We aim to steer clear of topics that are more “training department” oriented and focus on how people learn, what they learn, and what we’re learning.  If you an idea for a topic that you would like to suggest for #lrnchat, please feel free to reach out to any of the Chat Hosts.

This Week’s Questions

  • What sorts of formal learning experiences (Workshops, Conferences, Classes, etc.) have you chosen in the last few years?
  • How do you choose which experiences to participate in? Are they usuallly related to your own goals or something set by org?
  • When and how have your expectations and reality not matched? (i.e. – being beyond pleased or disappointed)
    • CLARIFICATION: Your expectations of a self-directed learning experience.
  • What makes it easier to learn during these types of experiences? What makes it more difficult?
  • What would you like to see at something like a conference that you think could enhance your learning?
  • What can you do to make an experience better fit your own needs?
  • What do you do before or after the experience to help make what you learn during the experience stick more?
  • Did your organisation value your achievements? if so, how, if not, why not?
  • What kind of moral or other support would have been useful/appreciated? How can you get that next time?
Please excuse the format of this week’s transcript as our typical capturing method experienced an error.
