Training Culture vs Learning Culture – A Mind Shift

Training Culture vs Learning Culture

There are some common terminology issues in training and staff development departments in many organizations. Some of these terminology issues give birth to larger problems and ways of thinking about training and the goals in organizations. I’m always thinking about the difference between training and learning and the importance it has to how we do our…

You Should Comment More

Comment more to learn more

If you’re not a blogger or don’t write on a regular basis, you should. It doesn’t have to be difficult to write, you don’t have to have a website, you don’t even have to have a topic to write about. The easiest way to write and continue to write is just to simply comment on…

Learning From Others

At The Cafe Talking

Over a year ago I began to share what I am learning at the moment. I did this through the hashtag #LrnToday which I also encouraged others to do. It’s been a while since I’ve reflected on how well it has worked and how I’ve updated it. A while being since I first posted about…

Social and Learned Helplessness in Learning

Sheep Being Social

It’s been a few weeks since I first wrote about Learned Helplessness in Learning but it hasn’t once left my mind. Even last week had some familiar mentions of it but without the name.

Ten Things That Make Me Cringe

Writing on Nick Leffler's Learning Blog

I was working on another post about learned helplessness in learning that I had previously started but felt this was a bit more timely given the eLearning Challenge. I am postponing my other post until next week (or perhaps later this week) so I can get this off my chest. I may write more on…

First Thoughts on Learned Helplessness

Explore: You're Not Alone

Since reading Mark Britz post It’s All Training Until It Isn’t and related post Learned (Learning) Helplessness many thoughts have been stirring in my head. Before I lost the ideas these posts and the term “learned helplessness” stirred in my head, I wanted to write down a story I was reminded of. It’s a story of how…
