Kapp Notes

The ASTD Big question this month is What did you learn about learning in 2008?

The Big Question: How do you respond to the ‘I want it now’ demand?

Clive on Learning

On the ASTD Learning Circuits blog, they ask the question “How do you address the ‘I want it now’ demand from stakeholders.” Now I know this question went up on April 1st but I’m taking it at face value.

The Big Question: Breaking down the organisational walls to learning

Clive on Learning

So, the Learning Circuits Big Question for June is: How do we break down organisational walls when it comes to learning? In other cases, there's no motivation to look beyond the organisational walls, because the people in question spend such a large proportion of their time at work that they have forgotten there is another world out there.

The big question: How do you make e-learning fun?

Clive on Learning

This month's Learning Circuits Big Question asks how you make e-learning fun.

April’s Big Question - Stuck?

Bottom-Line Performance

The Learning Circuits blog posted their big question for April – Stuck? One of the most common themes that emerged in the conversation around this month’s Big Question was that blogging was a key way for people to get unstuck. I’m sure Tony Karrer was pleased to see that, as it is a point I’ve heard him make. Other respondents to this month’s Big Question had some interesting ideas, like Jeff Goldman’s favorite getting unstuck technique, making a prototype.

Howdy and October's Big Question

The Learning Circuits

it's time for the Big Question! Hi all and welcome to my one month tenure at the editing console for the Learning Circuits Blog. Thanks to Justin and the team for the opportunity and the nice introduction! I've been working in and around E-Learning for the last 10 years or so - enough time to know a lot about nothing and a little about everything. But more of that later.

The Big Question: Does Gamification have a role in Workplace Learning?

Clive on Learning

October's Big Question at the Learning Circuits Blog addresses the application of games to workplace learning and in the process uses the word that everyone loves to hate - gamification. However contemporary and fashionable the word might be, the idea is, of course, anything but new. They may have set goals, perhaps in terms of output, perhaps time. Learning is hard. games

The Big Question: What questions are you no longer asking?

Clive on Learning

There’s a new Big Question on the Learning Circuits blog and it’s about questions. It builds on a great posting by George Siemens in which he describes Questions I’m no longer asking , in other words what issues are now so cut and dried that to keep questioning them would be a waste of energy. Please join the debate at The Big Question.

Design Day and the ASTD Big Question for July

Kapp Notes

Around the same time, the ASTD Learning Circuits Blog had the July "Big Question" which was "Choosing Tools" which is actually a series of questions: How does the eLearning design process need to change to accommodate such a wide variety of tools? So now that I established that point, the next question is "Can certain attributes of different media be leverage for learning?" So, to get to the "Big Question" How does the eLearning design process need to change to accommodate such a wide variety of tools? How does the tool selection process need to change?

The Big Question: How to assess learning initiatives…

Jay Cross

Furthermore, asking open-ended questions yields a lot more meaningful information than check-boxes and rating scales. How do you assess whether your informal learning, social learning, continuous learning, and performance support initiatives have the desired impact or achieve the desired results? Why single out informal, social, and continuous learning? Did the needle move or not? Just Jay

The Big Question: Keeping up

Clive on Learning

The April Big Question in the Learning Circuits Blog is simply ‘how do we keep up?’ It responds to this plea from a reader: Isn't this an ever-expanding universe of tech goodies? At one level this question can be answered very simply, because keeping up has never been easier. Will we be forced to chase hot tools and social platforms to stay competitive?

Does the Big Question Make Sense Anymore?

Tony Karrer

I’ve been facilitating the Big Question on ASTD’s Learning Circuit’s blog since sometime in 2006. Last month’s big question was Instruction in a Information Snacking Culture? The question was all about how we consume and work with information: People seem to be spending less time going through information in depth and less willing to spend time on information. We seem to be snacking on information, not consuming it in big chunks. In Stop Reading - Skim Dive Skim and that seems to be how people consume blog posts much more these days.

April's Big Question

eLearning Cyclops

In a nutshell, this month's Big Question is, do you ever get stuck getting new solutions or ideas accepted and implemented by your organization or client? In most organizations, especially large ones, one must get a lot of buy-in and this usually involves making a business case, predicting cost savings, efficiencies, potential return on investment, etc., etc., Oh, case studies and benchmarking from other organizations help too. And during these processes remember you are not just the person delivering training, but you must be the training consultant and instructional designer.
