Reconciling Activity and Decisions
OCTOBER 25, 2016
In preparing to work with a client on developing their learning science understanding, I realized that I was using two representations about meaningful learner interaction that could be seen to be conflicting. 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.
Active Learning in the Online Classroom: Examples and Ideas
MARCH 2, 2015
Someone recently told me that they heard of an approach where all the boring content delivery lecture material is put online so that more active learning can take place in the classroom. Good blended classrooms have a significant amount of active learning. The active learning philosophies need not only occur in the classroom however. Do you have something to add?
Active and Passive Learning in Organizations
The Peformance Improvement
APRIL 13, 2012
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
APRIL 8, 2013
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.
Skill based learning – How it drives an organization’s performance
Training and learning organizations today play an active role in contributing to the bottom line of any organization by aligning their objectives to the immediate business objectives. This provides a solid ground for cost justification and encourages businesses to place training groups right where they should be, at the heart of a growing, thriving, learning culture
Learning and Working on the Web
JANUARY 12, 2014
Over 10 years ago Patrick Lambe wrote a very good guide on the various roles one can have in PKM. Lambe identified six roles: Consumers, Communicators, Collectors, Connectors, Critics, and Creators. An effective team would have people engaged in all roles and provide some load-sharing for creation and criticism, both of which take significant effort.
Fundamental Design of Learning Activities
FEBRUARY 23, 2011
Design Thinking offers a set of tools to make sense of “wicked problems” and mysteries, and in this post I attempt to narrate my ideational journey in making sense of learning by digital means, the concept that I call learning experiences, and a notional (but far from complete) model for learning activities designed for individuals to experience. What Are Activities? Combat-Readiness.
3 – L&D roles to support learning at work
MARCH 24, 2016
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.
NOVEMBER 7, 2012
Assume a Role. 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.
The role of instructional designer in social/informal learning
Spark Your Interest
DECEMBER 3, 2015
One of the quandaries that instructional designers have been struggling with, is their role (if any) in informal or social learning. An instructional designer’s role is to design instruction. This is a much more facilitative role and some would argue that it’s counter-intutitive to have a designer involved. Is this the role of an instructional designer?
Megatrends in MOOCs: #10 The Changing Role of the Instructor
Your Training Edge
MAY 28, 2014
The role of the instructor is changing, and while the initial reaction has been one of shock and fear (educators are afraid of losing their jobs), the truth is that this shift is actually very good news—for companies, for employees, and for trainers. The new role of the instructor in MOOCs means that companies can train more people, more quickly and more effectively, than ever before.

Drill and Practice Activities for Your eLearning Courses

If there is one single factor that can be blamed in this otherwise blemish-free eLearning course, it is the reinforcement activities. What are Reinforcement Activities? Reinforcement activities are practice activities that give learners the chance to apply the information, knowledge, and skills they have learned from the course. Drill and Practice Activity Types.

Types and proportions of learning activities?
SEPTEMBER 30, 2014
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
Role of Interactivity in eLearning
MAY 24, 2016
Not only has eLearning interactivity been proven to activate long-term memory, but it also improves attention, promotes motivation, and enhances knowledge retention. Include a Variety of Learning Activities – Most eLearning interactions contain both visual and auditory elements, but depending on the content and objectives, instructional designers can add simulations, games, drag and drop interactions, hands on exercises and assessments that support high levels of engagement. eLearning professionals always struggle to find ways to present information in fun and engaging ways.
Role of Video Conferencing in Education
DECEMBER 2, 2013
The findings from this survey confirm what many of us would probably guess about the use of live-streaming video in education: it plays a critical role, and that role is growing in importance. Roughly 41% of survey respondents indicated that they used video conferencing on a laptop or mobile device for school related activities in the past year. But Why Live-Stream?

Activate your knowledge
Learning and Working on the Web
APRIL 17, 2013
It is a framework that helps move from an awareness of knowledge to activation of its use in the context of getting work done. Activation of knowledge happens in the context of tasks and so the cycle continues. PKM is much more than processing information. It’s about ideas, conversations and especially relationships. Most of all, PKM is a framework to actually do knowledge work.
Online Learning Activities to build Learning Communities
JULY 23, 2015
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. Online Teaching Activity 1 Task: Leadership style recognition activity through an eLearning game deployed on the learning management system.
How Technologies Will Change the Learning Function’s Role
ATD Learning Technologies
DECEMBER 21, 2015
Those lagging capabilities don’t negate the fact that technology-enabled learning products and strategies play increasingly important roles in designing and delivering content to learners worldwide. Technology will play an even greater role in the future. That same year is expected to see tablet users exceeding 1.4 billion (eMarketer 2015). Track employee learning; 74%.
Activating Latent Knowledge Capacity
JULY 5, 2014
Facebook plays a similar integrative role for participative technologies. Facebook allowed anyone to start sharing images, ideas, and form social networks and to do so in a single tool with similar functionality across different activities. Keeping in mind that a single narrative has shortcomings, I’ll argue that activation of latent capacity is the driving element of every successful technology of the past 15 years. Twitter/Facebook, activate multiple latent capacities: sharing, social connections, and images. We aren’t connecting. Latent Capacity.

Micro-Learning: Its Role in Formal, Informal and Incidental Learning
AUGUST 7, 2014
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.
The Changing Role of the CHRO
Learning on the Leading Edge
APRIL 22, 2015
Many of these roles have been filled with leaders from outside of HR – executives from marketing, finance, operations, or lines of business. Driven by the need to deliver greater business impact and drive innovation, the CHRO role is changing. And if you’re in a new HR leadership role, it’s important to get focused early. The Bold, Business-savvy CHRO.
Role of Community Management in Workplace Learning Today
NOVEMBER 22, 2014
Organizations investing in enterprise social platforms ( IMHO, more and more organizations are doing it and will continue to do so ) require community managers who can facilitate activities on the platform. This requires anyone playing the role to wear multiple hats. In my post, I want to explore some of the "hats" a community manager needs to wear to execute her role.
Role of E-learning in Creating an Ethical Workplace
JULY 18, 2016
Creating an ethical workplace is a long term process and not a one day activity. For instance, a new hire steps into the organization and observes that all his colleagues are trying to make him comfortable and helping him fulfill his roles and responsibilities. The role of superiors is not just to guide and lead their team mates, but to also develop a strong bond with them.

4 Ways to Apply the Situated Learning Theory
MARCH 31, 2015
Real learning happens only when it is contextual – meaning, when students can directly apply it in authentic activities, contexts and cultures. Situated learning environments place students in learning situations where they are actively immersed in an activity while using problem-solving (critical thinking) skills. Some of the ways to apply this theory are: Group Activities.
Emerging new roles for learning and performance professionals
NOVEMBER 18, 2012
And as more and more organisations do this, it means we are seeing the emergence of some new “learning and performance professional” roles in the workplace. I’ve highlighted some of them on my diagram below. In fact, the Learning & Performance Institute’s Capability Map is already beginning to specify the skills for some of these new roles.

The Role of the "New" Training Professional
APRIL 21, 2015
In many organizations the role of the training professional has transformed; no longer focused on delivering training, today’s L&D professional is now a facilitator of learning who also serves as an information manager, a content curator, and a builder of learning communities. We also encounter employees who readily and actively participate in learning as part of collaborative efforts with team members. While the need to do that is not going away the role of trainers has expanded and shifted to meet the needs of today’s workplace. and/or perform better. Content Curator.
