Life would be so much simpler if we spoke the same language. Half an hour ago, I posted this plea on the Learning Circuits blog:
|My business school alumni association hosts monthly "Technology Roundtables," interactive events for two hours in the evening. Past events have featured the CEOs of Google, Handspring, Brocade, The Chasm Group, Ariba, Ask Jeeves, and others.
They've asked me to lead a session on eLearning on January 14.
I have plenty of experience preaching to the eLearning choir but very little with generalist executives.
I'm struggling to put together a brief but gripping presentation. My problem is too much information, not too little. Right here, you've already brought up the power of collaboration, informal learning, the learning process, focus on results, enterprise integration, learning culture, community, peer-to-peer, and more.
If you were in my shoes, what nuggets would you share in your presentation?
Please respond with a Comment.
[Give me your opinion if you like.]
The counterpoint was an email I just received from The Training Shop, announcing such specials as "Buy ONE Smiley Face Balls and get one FREE Goofy Smiley Face Ball."
Not to be a curmugeon, but I fear this is what a lot of executives think goes on in corporate classrooms.
