You too can join the conversations by asking questions of Carmen and her guests. Carmen's smart look at culture change focuses on a wide variety of topics. She brings an insider's view of regulations, and reports on little changes happening in government, in attitude, in practice. Each month she will share culture change news and updates, amusing and heartwarming stories, and interview a guest on a relevant and timely topic.

Sparking Self-Directed Learning at Work

GUEST: LaVrene Norton, Founder Action Pact

 HOSTCarmen Bowman

Really - who in their work wants to be told what to do?  To be handed an 'assignment sheet' with your tasks lifelessly written out for you?  No time for thought.  No time for talk about your own creative insights.  There’s a better way, and it’s all about new opportunities for learning.  Everyone likes to learn, and the internet has made learning more accessible now than ever before.  Discovery excites us and we reach for more - through inquiry we initiate learning.  We make friends with online dictionaries, Wikipedia, and Google.  And who among us hasn’t used YouTube to learn how to change the oil in our car, measure for kitchen cabinets, bake yeast bread, or coach our child how to calculate the area of a trapezoid? 

We relax by playing online games and puzzles that teach us to look in all the corners, watch for opportunities, and calculate dangers. As we become increasingly knowledgeable and competent, we relish working in a warm, open environment that offers online learning, nurtures self-direction and critical thinking, and rewards new skills. 

Join Carmen as she hosts LaVrene Norton in discussing mindful learning including small group learning, shared leadership, and mobile learning with courses focused on person-centered care, household life and neighborhood communities.
