What It Takes for Employees to Own and Drive Their Own Learning (A Lot!) – Part 1

Mirjam Neelen, Paul A. Kirschner, 3-Star Learning Experiences, Feb 06, 2018
Commentary by Stephen Downes

I'm not sure yet where Mirjam Neelen & Paul A. Kirschner will take this discussion but it will be interesting to see. Interesting, I say, because there's p[lenty of evidence that employees can own and drive their own learning - not all, to be sure, but sufficiently many to say that it's not an anomaly. In this post we get a distinction between Self-Directed Learning (SDL) and Self-Regulated Learning (SRL). In SDL " individuals take initiative, with or without the help of others, in diagnosing their learning needs (etc.)", while SRL " is about the execution of a specific learning task and about managing the subsequent steps in a learning process." Also, the authors suggest that "we still need to clearly distinguish between ‘improving performance’ on the one hand and ‘learning’ on the other, as improving one’s performance doesn’t necessarily mean something has been learned." Stay tunesd for Part 2 next week.
