I'm the manager of IT and Distance Education for UNH Cooperative Extension and Chair of the Network Literacy Community of Practice with eXtension. I provide technical support, training, Salesforce administration, and develop web-based applications using Drupal, Coldfusion, HTML, AJAX, and Flex. I'm interested in how the Internet can enable organizations like Extension be more effective, less redundant, and more agile.

And even though Christians had begun affirming the Christian meaning of the celebration, they continued to use the name of the goddess to designate the season.”

Becoming a Learning Culture: Competing in an Age of Disruption - The Performance Improvement Blog

Most companies have a training culture, not a learning culture. This emphasis on formal training is a barrier to learning and change. In a training culture, responsibility for employee learning resides with instructors and training managers. In that kind of culture, trainers (under the direction of a CLO) drive learning. Whereas in a learning culture, responsibility for learning resides with each employee, each team, and each manager. In that kind of culture, employees, with the help of their managers, seek out the knowledge and skills they need, when and where that knowledge and those skills are needed.
