Reconciling Activity and Decisions

Clark Quinn

On the one hand I talk about using decisions as a basis for design, and on the other I refer to activity -based learning. What was necessary was reconciling activity and decisions. However, I also have characterized learning as a series of activities, and those activities generate some work product and are (ideally) annotated with reflections. Does it make sense to you?

Active and Passive Learning in Organizations

The Peformance Improvement

Another approach is to make the learner an active creator of knowledge and skills. In this role, employees (as individuals, teams, or the organization as a whole) receive feedback about what they are doing and how they are doing it and, through individual and collective reflection, learn how to make themselves, their teams, and the enterprise more effective.

Active learning spaces

Learning with e's

It is also important that learning is made to be active and engaging. All of these aspects of learning are active. It is not hard to see how such an artificial transition from active to passive can stifle creativity and demotivate learners. One argument is that simply having access to personalised technologies creates conducive conditions in which active learning can occur.

Translating Activities Into the Virtual Classroom

ATD Learning Technologies

Often moving classroom activities for a virtual classroom is less about creating the actual content, and more about mapping out and creating the learner journey. Whatever you call it, it should provide a high-level outline of what the course will contain, the topics to be covered, expected learning outcomes, activities you will use, and learning modalities. Case studies. Quizzes.

3 – L&D roles to support learning at work

Jane Hart

In the first post in this series I showed the many different ways that people learn at work , and in the second I talked about the activities involved in supporting all the ways people learn at work. In this third post I want to consider the L&D roles for enabling this, so in the diagram below I’ve plotted them onto the diagram I have been using in the last two posts.

Want to help someone learn? Have them assume a role.

Kapp Notes

Assume a Role. A role-play that involves speaking to a nurse. To foster higher level skills, the player should assume a role during the game and not just play. Assuming a role means the learner must actively think about their actions, decisions and choices from a perspective other than themself. The classroom context is artificial.

Types and proportions of learning activities?

Clark Quinn

There’s essentially no role for bullet points or prose and simplistic quizzes, very little role for tarted up quizzes, and lots of role for media on the content side and branching scenarios and model-driven interactions on the interaction side. I’ve been on quite the roll of late, calling out some bad practices and calling for learning science. And it occurs to me that there could be some pushback. So let me be clear, I strongly suggest that the types of learning that are needed are not info dump and knowledge test, by and large. What does that mean? design

Online Learning Activities to build Learning Communities

Online learning is seldom complete without reinforceming activities which provide evidence that learning did take place. When designing any online activity with social media as an engagement strategy, the instructor must bear in mind Bloom’s Taxonomy (Sylvia, 2014). In higher education and the corporate training environment, the focus is more on application and synthesis, as opposed to recalling activities.

Micro-Learning: Its Role in Formal, Informal and Incidental Learning

ID Reflections

Microlearning deals with relatively small learning units and short-term learning activities. Thus, micro-learning can play a crucial role in both formally designed performance support as well as in informal learning, with the latter focusing on user-generated content. Some of the information and knowledge bytes we encounter are designed for us with specific objectives in mind – formal learning ; some of it we pull based on our need at the moment – informal learning ; and some of the learning occurs as a by-product of some other activity – incidental learning.

4 Ways to Apply the Situated Learning Theory

Origin Learning

Real learning happens only when it is contextual – meaning, when students can directly apply it in authentic activities, contexts and cultures.

Some of the ways to apply this theory are: Group Activities.
