Learning Out Loud is a method that promotes networked learning within an organization. In this context, this is also referred to as “social learning”. Anyone who has a topic they would like to learn about meets regularly with like-minded people over several weeks in a structured process, defines goals, plans, and produces a micro-learning unit, and then makes it available to all colleagues. This can be a workshop or a video tutorial. The method follows the motto “If you want to learn something, start teaching it”. So you are a participant and a producer in one. A great effect is that the learning content is highly accepted by the employees because it comes from valued colleagues and is extremely relevant for the workplace.
