Tony Karrer is blogging about the term “meta-learning” and its definition as it was used in the article “Become a chief meta-learning officer” by Jay Cross and Clark Quinn. Great insights are shared by author and commenters.

Harold Jarche is exploring the challenges of training in complex environments. “In complex environments, only emergent practices are effective, as backward-looking “good practices” are inadequate”. Harold suggests that an effective strategy to deal with complexity would be first going in “Beta” (meaning testing training through some action) and then tapping the feedback gained and revising either with radical or small changes.

A nice description of the process undertaken when using the Instructional Systems Design (ISD) strategy to learning program development, by Michael Hanley.
