How Do People Learn at the Workplace? Investigating Four Workplace Learning Assumptions

in: Duval, E., Klamma, R., Wolpers, M. (Eds.), Creating New Learning Experiences on a Global Scale (LNCS, Volume 4753), Springer, Heidelberg, 2007

Journal
Any software development project is based on assumptions about the state of the world that probably will hold when it is fielded. Investigating whether they are true can be seen as an important task. This paper describes how an empirical investigation was designed and conducted for the EU funded APOSDLE project. This project aims at supporting informal learning during work. Four basic assumptions are derived from the project plan and subsequently investigated in a two-phase study using several methods, including workplace observations and a survey. The results show that most of the assumptions are valid in the current work context of knowledge workers. In addition more specific suggestions for the design of the prospective APOSDLE application could be derived. Though requiring a substantial effort, carrying out studies like this can be seen as important for longer term software development projects.

The Web 2.0 Way of Learning with Technologies

International Journal of Learning Technology, Vol. 3, Issue 1, 2007, Inderscience Publishers, 2007

Journal
While there is a lot of hype around various concepts associated with the term Web 2.0 in industry, little academic research has so far been conducted on the implications of this new approach for the domain of education. Much of what goes by the name of Web 2.0 can, in fact, be regarded as new kinds of learning technologies, and can be utilised as such. This paper explains the background of Web 2.0, investigates the implications for knowledge transfer in general, and then discusses its particular use in eLearning contexts with the help of short scenarios. The main challenge in the future will be to maintain essential Web 2.0 attributes, such as trust, openness, voluntariness and self-organisation, when applying Web 2.0 tools in institutional contexts.

Rapid Knowledge Work Visualization for Organizations

Journal of Knowledge Management, Emerald Group Publishing Limited, 2007

Journal
Purpose: The purpose of this contribution is to motivate a new, rapid approachto modeling knowledge work in organizational settings and to introducea software tool that demonstrates the viability of the envisioned concept.Approach: Based on existing modeling structures, the KnowFlowr Toolsetthat aids knowledge analysts in rapidly conducting interviews and in conductingmulti-perspective analysis of organizational knowledge work is introduced.Findings: It is demonstrated how rapid knowledge work visualization can beconducted largely without human modelers by developing an interview structurethat allows for self-service interviews. Two application scenarios illustrate thepressing need for and the potentials of rapid knowledge work visualizations inorganizational settings.Research Implications: The efforts necessary for traditional modeling approachesin the area of knowledge management are often prohibitive. Thiscontribution argues that future research needs to take economical constraintsof organizational settings into account in order to be able to realize the fullpotential of knowledge work management.Practical Implications: This work picks up a problem identified in practiceand proposes the novel concept of rapid knowledge work visualization for makingknowledge work modeling in organizations more feasible.Value: This work develops a vision of rapid knowledge work visualization andintroduces a tool-supported approach that addresses some of the identified challenges.

From Folksonomies to Ontologies: Employing Wisdom of the Crowds to Serve Learning Purposes

International Journal for Knowledge & Learning IJKL, 3(4), 2007, 2007

Journal
Is Web 2.0 just hype or just a buzzword, which might disappear in the near future? One way to find answers to these questions is to investigate the actual benefit of the Web 2.0 for real use cases. Within this contribution we study a very special aspect of the Web 2.0 ? the folksonomy ? and its use within self-directed learning. Guided by conceptual principles of emergent computing we point out methods, which might be able to let semantics emerge from folksonomies and discuss the effect of the results in self-directed learning.

Evaluating an Information Retrieval System for the Semantic Desktop using Standard Measures from Information Retrieval

Lernen - Wissen - Adaption LWA 2007, 2007

Konferenz
Evaluation of information retrieval systems is a critical aspect of information retrieval research. New retrieval paradigms, as retrieval in the Semantic Web, present an additional challenge for system evaluation as no off-the-shelf test corpora for evaluation exist. This paper describes the approach taken to evaluate an information retrieval system built for the Semantic Desktop and demonstrates how standard measures from information retrieval research are employed for evaluation.

PROLEARN framework for process-oriented learning and knowledge work

2007

Given the importance of an organisation’s human capital to business success, aligning training and competencydevelopment with business needs is a key challenge. Many companies did initiate in the pastknowledge management activities or founded corporate universities as the organization intended to helpcompanies to face this challenge. In this deliverable, we talk about knowledge work and learning managementas a concept to “increase business performance” through a better short- and long-term learningapproach for people at management level. The aim is to provide a guideline for corporate users based onour and others' experiences of implementing solutions for knowledge work and learning. This is connectedto many forms and methods of learning: formal learning processes, informal learning, team learning,collaboration, social networking, community building etc. In many companies, managers think thatknowledge work can be supported solely by offering courses and enabling to access content on demand.In this deliverable this aspect (ACQUIRING knowledge) will not be in focus as it is more the job of atraining department to manage courses and catalogues. Instead we focus on APPLYING knowledge. Theconcept of knowledge work management comes into place, when companies see the ability of their employeesto APPLY their education and knowledge as a strategic instrument to create competitiveness andlook for tools to provide learning and knowledge at workplace on demand and fitting to the individualneeds. And this objective is very actual as the globalization creates pressure on companies and theknowledge and experience of the employees gets the most important differentiator to competitors – leadingto better innovation, faster processes, higher productivity and lower costs. In this deliverable, anoverall approach and guideline for companies will be provided on how to implement knowledge workmanagement and provide learning according to the needs in business and resulting from business processes.
