Just In Time Learning
This event took place on Friday 08 February 2008 at 15:00

Rapid and accelerating changes in job skills and knowledge requirements call for learning responses of increasing complexity. Core life-long learning is necessary to function as thoughtful and productive humans in society. Varieties of on-the-job training (OJT) and just-in-time learning (JITL) techniques are necessary to support evolving learning requirements. We will take the tool-builder's perspective in discussing the learning frameworks necessary to support JITL, whether JITL occurs in OJT or in classroom or home settings. The view that learning is a socially-mediated exercise is presented. We argue that the Dynamic Knowledge Repository (DKR) framework suggested by Douglas Engelbart can provide an appropriate framework with which to support learning of all kinds. We will sketch DKR applications and suggest ways to apply them to both OJT and public learning opportunities.
