“respect, accomplishment, achievement” – for action, learning, knowledge sharing with ICT

A re-post from Stephen Downes’ enewsletter, http://www.downes.ca/ , sorry, I can’t find his reference, from the reference.  I found listening to this talk useful as the panel is discussing use of ICT amongst – thinking, our individual character, and I dare say, the sociological context.

Webinar on continuous learning in organizations

Post from Social Work Research Network

“we will discuss what a culture of continuous learning is, and what research has shown to facilitate or impede the creation of this culture”

Perform Well Webinar – Develop a Culture of Continuous Learning in Your Organization
October 20, 2015, 3:00-4:30 PM EDT
Every organization has a culture that includes its philosophies for interacting with the people they serve. These philosophies reflect an understanding of what they are doing well and what they can improve upon. An organization’s ability to demonstrate impact, and to deliver the outcomes that they set out to achieve, is what defines them. This webinar will review several ways to ensure that continuous learning becomes part of your organization’s culture. Click here for more information.

work in.
