CLOs, Move From Conduit to Curator

Greg Pryor, Chief Learning Officer, Feb 08, 2017
Commentary by Stephen Downes

A CLO is a 'Chief Learning Officer' and the point of this article is to suggest that CLOs shift their role from being a 'conduit' of knowledge and information to being a 'curator'. This is a three step process:

  • Personalize employee learning experiences - "deliver content in a way that’s personalized and similar to the content employees view on their personal devices; think Netflix and Facebook."
  • Enable the (l)earning curve - encourage learners "who are always ready to learn and evolve to meet new challenges"
  • Crowdsource employee knowledge - "have learning technology in place that can capture and store employee knowledge on the business"

Of course none of these is nearly as simple as the quick one-paragraph form suggests. And I thin k the process involves far more than mere curation.
