Open Source Learning - Model for 21st Century Talent Development

ATD Competency Model: Learning Technologies


The concept of “open-source” — that is, software for which the original “source” code is made freely available for others to add on, modify, and improve — radically changed the way software is developed, and has played a large part in enabling the technology boom we see around us today.

But the open-source idea isn’t just for software engineers. Some of the core ideas associated with open-source approaches can offer interesting new directions for L&D teams too.

As decentralization, openness, sharing, and collaboration become the new norm in many organizations, the idea that anyone can share their expertise broadly, and that individuals and teams can access and build on each other’s know-how perfectly encapsulates this concept of ‘open-source learning’ perfectly.

In this presentation, you will learn from the experiences of a technology company on applying the concepts of open-source software development to development of another kind – that of your staff.

We’ll cover:

a) fundamentals of “open-source learning”

b How these relate to knowledge sharing and learning within an organization

c) How to make open-source learning happen

d) The role of the L&D professional in driving an open-source learning culture
