Exactly what is a 'Professional'?

I recently agreed to give a talk to a group of IT Professionals entitled "Professionalism in IT, does it matter?". During the talk there was much consternation when, after posing a series of questions to the audience, I told them that 'none of you are IT professionals' - and this to a seasoned audience of senior practitioners in the industry.

My justification for making that bold statement was not that this audience was made up of incompetent, untrustworthy…

I'll try and delve a little deeper in subsequent posts but need time to digest it a bit more first. It was fantastic to catch up with so many people at the event - and sorry to everyone I missed, it all went so quickly!…

Introducing That Learning Dude

Hello there, just a short note to introduce myself, I am (he says in alter ego fashion) That Learning Dude, just the one that people ask all about this and that and a little bit more. I am by day a learning consultant with Tesco Academy (Tesco Bank) with and by night and day spending far too much time online according to my dear wife, but that is me, thinking learning around 18 hours a day and loving it.

How do subject matter experts create high-quality eLearning resources?

It has become increasingly easy to create eLearning resources. Software tools such as authorware, learning management systems and social web applications allow those without programming or design skills to produce their own eLearning courseware. More and more organisations are making use of this potential, in particular because it can support the spread of knowledge and best practice internally from subject matter experts to colleagues.

However, though this…

[Copied over from my personal blog]

So, some time ago I had an idea about getting social media used more at my workplace. It's been on the back-burner for a while to avoid clashing with our busiest period, but that will be drawing to an end soon, and I now have a whole lot more tricks at my disposal thanks to…

Architects for learning

Architects as we usually know them
