- Assembly Line: Instructional Designers as Content Curators by Stacy Friedman : Learning Solutions Magazine – Stacy Friedman's article hits some of the points I've been espousing for years (it's good to have someone agree!). Not just for learning, but for all performance improvement solutions, there is so much already available that we need to be adept at building solutions using the content and platforms available instead of reinventing wheels.
- Flipped Classrooms in Corporate Learning: Concept or reality? – The ways of Training and Learning in the corporate space are changing. With the advent of technology-enabled learning, corporate trainers are exploring newer ways of reaching out to learners. From a very ‘course-centric’ focus, trainers are now leaning towards ‘learner-centric’ models which require learners to take a more active role in their own learning

In his latest he proffers that an organizations’ culture cannot change so it must wait to be destroyed from without instead of changing from within.

I rarely wax poetic about restaurants, but I had such a wonderful experience in Melbourne that I wanted to share it. I was down under to deliver a keynote and masterclass at KM Australia 2008. (I promise I will have the summary of the keynote posted soon!) While there, I had the great good fortune to join some members of the Knowledge Management Roundtable Victoria for dinner. The ringleader for the evening was Michelle Lambert and through her sheer determination, we were able to land a table for eight at Longrain Resturant and Bar. (Much thanks to Geri Overberg for modeling the restaurant’s shingle in the photo!)
The menu is nouveau asian fusion and because we had a large group we ordered a banquet menu. The banquet include a wide range of dishes and each of they was simply delicious. From the curries to the seafood, from the silken tofu to the young coconut gelatin – everything was simply delicious! If you are ever in Melbourne, be sure to make Longrain part of your trip. You will not be disappointed!
Despite it being mid-winter down under and my only have a few non-working days, I did get out to see a bit of the city. If you would like to see the smattering of photos from the trip that I posted on Facebook, just click the picture below:
