What Sharing Ideas At Work Does For Us

What are the benefits of sharing ideas at work?

There are many benefits from sharing ideas at work. I thought it would be good to write this because I occasionally hear people talk about sharing creates stolen ideas and in return fighting over those stolen ideas. There are other thoughts on why sharing ideas at work shouldn’t be done but my focus on why…

Employees Avoiding Corporate Barriers

Employees Avoiding Corporate Barriers

This is a story that is close to me because I see employees avoiding corporate barriers every day. I’ve seen what command and control leads to and it’s not good for anybody, organization or employee. When an organization gets worried about lawsuits and starts to shut computer systems down to prevent leaks and errors, people don’t…

Increasing Social Awareness in Higher Education

Increasing Social Awareness in Higher Education

About two months ago I wrote about increasing social awareness in higher education, specifically the MSIDT program that I graduated from. Developing the social awareness of the program has gone well, although nothing like I had planned. This isn’t necessarily a bad thing because plans can’t take into account all the variable but just doing it can…

Unplug

How do you unplug?

Every day I seem to hear about unplugging and getting away from work. There’s a pretty undeniable link between unplugging and the topic of work-life balance. There’s a little more to it than that though. The question I think about often is if it’s necessary to fully unplug or if we can simply manage the struggle. Pulling a…

Modeling a Training Framework

Training Framework

I was provoked into this blog post by none other than the eLearning Provocateur, Ryan Tracey. I do agree with the fact that you have to take the good with the bad when speaking of frameworks, but my caution is in that there’s usually more bad than good and it’s increasingly more difficult to separate…

Are You Appy?

Do You Need a Mobile App, Web App, or Mobile Website?

There are many questions that come up when deciding on what type of mobile solution is needed for an organization. I’m not going to cover them all or else I’d be writing a novel. The question I want to cover is whether to app or not. What I mean by this is the two major…

Social Awareness Program For Instructional Design Degree

Social Awareness Program at MSIDT

I recently began a new consulting job with the Master’s program I got my degree from. It’s the MSIDT program at California State University Fullerton (CSUF). It wasn’t for any typical Instructional Design work which I’ve worked on (even in my side consulting jobs) but with social media skills at the center. I’ve done a lot…

Don’t Control Knowledge, Let the Base Free

Don't control knowledge. Let it free.

I tried posting this last week but I’ve been having a hard time, so here’s my second chance breaking my many week silence. Hopefully dropping some knowledge on the knowledge-base will open the flood gates. There’s been a few times when a knowledge base has popped up in my world lately, from where I put things…

What I’m Working On

What i'm Working On

Life ebbs and flows, that seems to be how it goes. I went from relatively quiet days to too much. The quiet was prior to 6 months ago, it’s gone to relatively busy since then. In the past few days it’s caught up with me, either that or I have a bug that’s slowing me down…

Attention Spans Are Getting Shorter

Attention Spans Are Getting Shorter

Attentions spans are shrinking, nobody can pay attention for more than a few seconds. That’s what I hear all the time, and it was brought up many times in a recent chat2lrn. Just to clear things up, an attention span is that thing that allows us to pay attention to something. You know, when something…
