KM Question of the Week
Q: What communities and blogs exist for learning professionals? - asked by Robert Swanwick
I asked my HP learning & development colleague, Celia Bohle, for her suggestions. Here is her response. “There are many communities in the learning space:
- My favorite one is Elliott Masie’s Learning Consortium. He does an excellent job in connecting Learning Professionals across the globe.
- Another organization you may want to join is ASTD (American Society for Training & Development).
- Facebook is also great way of connecting to Learning Professionals and to join Learning Communities.
Here is my list of favorite Learning Blogs:
- Corporate eLearning Development
- Informal Learning Blog
- Learning in the Modern Workplace
- The Bamboo Project Blog
- Clive on Learning
- Design of Knowledge by Bill Brantley
- eLearning Weekly
- eLearning Technology
You can tell that I do have a preference for Learning 2.0 and technology-related topics.”

KM Book of the Week
Patrick Lambe posted to the actKM Discussion List: “Gawande is a surgeon, an extremely insightful writer about his craft, very interested in how surgeons acquire and use their knowledge and is completely unencumbered by KM theory. Perhaps because of that, he illuminates basic human activities around knowledge in a very important way for KM. There’s also a good video lecture of him introducing some of the main themes of his book.”
