    Research output: Contribution to conferencePaperAcademic


    This paper argues that when attempting to develop learning networks for lifelong learning, it is vital to overcome the inevitable organizational resistance to change. This resistance takes many forms, but in each case it stifles the ability to move forward. Furthermore, although there are also technological and pedagogical perspectives to consider, without a proper assessment of an organization’s needs, a realistic assessment of its capacity and “buyin” from stakeholders, it is impossible to meet the minimum requirements necessary to properly develop and implement a learning network solution. The authors base their assessment on over ten years working with organizations that develop learning systems and networks using a variety of technologies, including open source.
