Premise

In the article, “L&D’s biggest challenge and greatest opportunity: letting go” Jane Hart wrote “Modern professionals like to learn with and from others” As organizational leaders, are we leveraging an effective framework to achieve this? Learning circles is a scalable framework for digitally-facilitating collaborative learning at the workplace.

Description

Our aim is to coach a team to rapidly design and deliver a learning circle. Your first priority is to choose a topic. Next, select three to five relevant professionals to form your design and delivery team. The team can comprise of a subject matter expert, training professional, content designer, instructional designer, senior management, facilitator, manager and other functional roles. Then we plan out a schedule - rapid 1-2 days or slow and steady over a few weeks.

Our intervention consists of synchronous face-to-face sessions combined with asynchronous digital learning. The purpose of our face-to-face interventions is to review completed work and validate next steps. In between, the team continues and completes the design & development learning circle.

The ultimate goal is to permeate the learning experience through the organization. As a result, the garnered collective intelligence can be shared with key stakeholders. The outcomes and analytics support managers in creating an evidence-based and actionable plan for subsequent learning interventions;

Learning circles are an effective framework for Digital Organization Development. Learning circles owe its origin to Study Circles from Sweden. Some of the core principles include equality of participants, facilitated learning not training, a collaborative and not competitive environment and balancing knowledge acquisition with social communication.
