#GuildChat for 6/14/19: Ethics in Organizational Learning

Our next #GuildChat takes place Friday, June 14th at 11am PT / 2pm ET. Our topic for this week’s chat is on Ethics in Organizational Learning.

Making ethical decisions in organizational learning isn’t something that would appear top of mind for most but often it happens in small not large situations. Consider using gamification, deciding between learner wants and organizational needs, as well as what are we going to do with all this data we can collect?


Join us this week as we explore the ethical decisions we need to to make that impact our audience, our organization, and our own consciences as learning professionals.


Prospective questions.

Q1 Sometimes what our stakeholders want to do may be at odds with what’s best for the audience or what we know about how people learn. How do you navigate those ethical challenges?
Q2 Data and the collection of data about learners is a hot topic today. Where can or should the line be drawn on how that data is used?
Q3 VR environments can give us an extremely realistic environment. Is too real a risk? When?
Q4 Leveraging things like gamification or competition can motivate but they can also manipulate. How do you determine what engagement techniques might cross a line?
Q5 BYOD initiatives can make mobile learning easier, but they can also pressure people to always be on. How can we find healthy work/life balance with these programs (or can we)?
Q6 Social learning through collaborative technologies invites sharing and connection. What are some ethical considerations around organizational learning communities we should be mindful of?
Q7 What’s our obligation to give back to our professional community? Do we have one?
Q8 What are some ethical considerations you see coming down the road with regards to AI, Automation, AR, Sensors, IoT, etc?
