We Need a Degree in Instructional Design

Kapp Notes

This month's ASTD Big Question on the Learning Circuit's Blog is about Social Networking and finding help and expertise if you have a question or a concern for which you need input and/or advice.

The Big Question: What did you learn about learning in 2008?

Clive on Learning

The Learning Circuits Blog Big Question for December is 'what did you learn about learning in 2008?' Keeping true to my new belief in the benefits of procrastination , I have managed to leave this until the very last day of the month; and, because I have not yet posted any retrospectives for 2008, I thought I'd combine the two. A mathematician's apology. No Two Alike.

The big question: What are your predictions for learning in 2008

Clive on Learning

In addressing this month's question on the Learning Circuits Blog , I was tempted by an observation made by Stephen Downes in his review of last year's eLearn Magazine predictions : there are two major types of predictions: one, which identifies a current trend, and says it will continue; and the other, that identifies something novel or unexpected. I'm sorry, but nothing startling there.

The big question: What is the scope of our responsibility as learning professionals?

Clive on Learning

The Big Question for March on the Learning Circuits Blog is 'what is the scope of our responsibility as learning professionals?' I don't regard this question as just a topical response to the increased interest in informal learning - it's an issue that has been there as long as we have had learning professionals. Whether this matters is of course debatable.

List to Learn, Learn to List

Kapp Notes

This month's ASTD Big Question is, again, a series of questions. Apparently one BIG question is not enough for the learning and development community. We aim to exceed expectations. If you have a to-learn list and are willing to share, and willing to share how you work with that list, that would likely be helpful information. I constantly have a "to-learn" list.

Help, I have an Instructional Design Master's Degree and I Can't Create E-Learning

Kapp Notes

This month's ASTD Big Question relates to a person who graduated from a theory-only program in Instructional Design and was not provided with the experience of actually creating instruction using any of the latest tools. So the question is: What advice would you give to someone who has no experience with e-learning development tools? Where do you start? If that doesn't work.
