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.

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.

Disenchantment with universities

JC in transition | Climate Etc.

Once you detach from the academic mindset, publishing on the internet makes much more sense, and the peer review you can get on a technical blog is much more extensive. But peer review is not really the point; provoking people to think in new ways about something is really the point. In other words, science as process, rather than a collection of decreed ‘truths.’

College is not job preparation

College is Over – Medium

Gradually, college will go back to what it always was: “a four year vacation funded by my parents” as one of my Northwestern students told me. But that means that only rich people will go to college. If and when college is made free, then you and I will be paying for their vacation. Kids who want jobs will go to bootcamps. (I sure hope they change that name.)
Or, we could try making high school more pragmatic and job oriented. (Of course that will never happen as long as Common Core is the rule and the Testing companies own education.)

How ancient wisdom can help managers give their employees better feedback

" It’s more about the person giving the rating than the actual performance of the person being evaluated."
