Don't be afraid to call yourself a trainer

Clive on Learning

In a 2004 CIPD research report, Helping people learn: strategies for moving from training to learning , Reynolds wrote: ‘Training has a tendency to react to present needs, rather than build capabilities for the future; to transfer large amounts of information rather than build on the knowledge of participants; to remain detached from the context in which work is produced; and to lack the supporting processes needed to put new ideas into practice’ (Reynolds 2004). Yet when I first entered the profession I was perfectly happy to be called a Training Specialist.

Become a SCORM pro – Day 1. What is SCORM?


Developed in 1993 as a CD-ROM based standard, online web support was added to its specifications in 1998. That’s what supports SCORM’s ‘interoperability’ for those who create eLearning content and those who consume it. That status quo remained until 2004 when (cleverly enough!) SCORM version 2004 was born. Before SCORM. That was life pre-SCORM! SCORM was soon born.


eLearning Standards—What They Are and Why They Matter


SCORM has since evolved to a newer version, known as SCORM 2004, and its most recent release is known as SCORM 2004 4th Edition, which was released in 2009. SCORM 2004 added the concept of sequencing course objects, as well as the ability for the LMS to manage navigation of the content. The first standard for training media was published in 1989, and was based on a PC platform.

Engagement: A Critical Element in Learning and Gamification

Kapp Notes

Salen and Zimmerman (2004) identify a model that presents four modes of interactivity or levels of engagement that a person may have within an interactive system such as a game. This is the interface between the student and the gamification event, the input screen or the materials to support an in-class gamification experience. You need to develop approaches to engage the student.

Although studies, such as Collins and Holton’s 2004 meta-analysis in HRDQ and Bruce Avolio and colleagues’ 2005 study in Leadership Review point to the  positive influences  associated with leadership development, current and expensive initiatives often attract raised eyebrows, reflecting skepticism about transfer from leader development events to performance, habits and results.
