The Big Question: how to assess informal learning

Clive on Learning

The Big Question on the ASTD Learning Circuits Blog is long enough to fill a post all by itself: How do you assess whether your informal learning, social learning, continuous learning, performance support initiatives have the desired impact or achieve the desired results? If you check out the blog you’ll find some fascinating answers to the question.

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. If a big story comes in, they don’t hold it for the day after next, they spring into action and put something together now. Or does it?

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. You'll find it on YouTube as a narrated slideshow or on the Charity Learning Consortium blog in textual form.

5 TED Talks (and Big Questions) for Adult Learning Professional

eLearning Alchemy

Each of these talks makes me think about a big question in adult learning and corporate training. The questions are: How can self-organized learning environments be used in adult learning and corporate training? Sugata Mitra was puzzled by a question: “How come all the rich people are having extraordinarily gifted children?” Rule #2 : Embrace the mess. Learning is ugly.

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

I left a comment on Tony Karrer's blog about creating a "Design Day" so that everyone in the blogosphere adds a comment about the importance of instructional design as opposed to focusing on technology. 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? It is a great entry outlining 3 elements of good design. How does the tool selection process need to change?

So - here's the big question for January 2011: Should the Big Question continue? Option 2 - Step 1 - Post in your blog (please link to this post).

The main question is Learning design differences for Digital Natives?

2009 Top Posts and Topics: Kapp Notes

Kapp Notes

The ASTD Big question this month is an annual question: What did you learn about learning in 2009? So one of the tasks I will do to answer this question is to see what posts were the Best of 2009 from several different sources. This entry was made because I was doing a presentation on the topics and I wanted to use my blog as the platform for presenting the information and as a "leave behind" resource so that the teachers could reference and find the games all in one place when they wanted to use them for the classroom.
