ZP Reconnect: Erfahrungen bei meiner ersten Präsenzmesse nach Corona

Auch Karlheinz Pape war mit einem Impuls (“Gebt den Lernenden ihr Lernen zurück!”) auf der ZP Reconnect und hat im Nachgang über seine Eindrücke reflektiert. Einerseits lobt er den Mut der Veranstalter, kommt dann aber schnell zu grundsätzlichen Fragen: Sollten sich Messen nicht stärker als Verkaufs- und Lernevents verstehen? Und was kann das für die Konzeption solcher Veranstaltungen bedeuten? Seine Wünsche bzw. Ideen:

“Wenn es bei Messen üblich würde, dass sich Besucher untereinander austauschen, dann würde das Lernen von den Kolleginnen und Kollegen enorm beschleunigt. Zusätzlich würden Netzwerke entstehen, die auch nach der Messe wirken. …
Vielleicht schaffen wir es ja, dass bei künftigen Messen jeder Besucher seine mitgebrachten Fragen erstmal in einer BarCamp-Session mit anderen Besuchern diskutiert – bevor er sich von Anbietern beraten läßt.”

Der Aufbau von Future Skills im Kontext von New Learning

Ich war ja als Teil des Expertenrats diese Woche auf der ZP Reconnect in Köln aktiv. Ein Gesprächsthema war natürlich die Messe selbst und ihr Versuch, der Pandemie eine Präsenzveranstaltung abzutrotzen. An dieser Stelle möchte ich aber auf Jan Foelsing verlinken, den ich überzeugen konnte, nach Köln zu kommen und dort sein Herzensthema “New Learning” vorzustellen. Er hat dankenswerter Weise auch gleich die Slides seines Vortrages verlinkt. In ihnen bringt er Future Skills und New Learning zusammen und leitet daraus gleich einige Appelle an Learning & Development ab.

It doesn’t matter if it’s good

I completed this LinkedIn Learning course from Seth Godin – ‘Creativity at work’ earlier this week.

In the ‘There’s no such thing as writer’s block’ video, Seth describes an exchange he had with Isaac Asimov, the science fiction author, who is responsible for writing over 400 books.

I repeat this section from the transcript:

“How do you come up with 400 published books? And he walked me over to this little manual typewriter in his office. And he said, here’s what I do. Every morning I sit here at 6:30 and I type until noon five and a half hours of typing and it doesn’t matter if it’s good. It doesn’t matter if it’s good. I simply type, and the magic of this is that if you’re sitting there typing and typing and typing, sooner or later your subconscious stops fighting with you. Sooner or later it says, well, if he’s going to make me type anyway, I might as well type something good. So no, there’s no such thing as writer’s block. What there is, is a fear of bad writing.

For me, who’s struggled with writing for this blog for a good many years, I’ve always thought that, well, people talk about writers’ block so I must have it. I had half-formed ideas I couldn’t articulate my thoughts fully to publish, days went by with no inspiration or enthusiasm to write anything, etc.

Perhaps what was actually happening is that I feared writing that just wasn’t any good. Perhaps I should just write, and see what happens?

I will, however, still strive to be authentic and relevant to the purpose or themes of this blog – education, learning, informative, leadership, technology.
