Top 10 eLearning Predictions for 2010

Tony Karrer

Before I start with any of my actual predictions, let me throw in an overall prediction that the year is going to start off slow for most people, but by the end of the year, we will all be thinking: “Wow, 2010 was a crazy year!” For example, Harold Jarche tells us 2010: Year of the CM.

Management's Critical Role in Training

The Peformance Improvement

Management of any organization, large, medium, or small, has a critical role to play in the training and development of employees.

Why does everyone hate role plays?

Clive on Learning

In the past when I have heard groups express their dislike (if not complete hatred) of role plays, I have been sceptical that this opinion was in some way swayed by the bad experiences of the group in question - they had clearly in some past existence been badly bitten during or as a result of a role play exercise. So now it’s official – people hate role plays. Here ends my rant on role plays.

3D Virtual Immersive Environment Role Plays

Kapp Notes

A 3D Virtual World role play provides a realistic environment in which two or more people act out a scenario. Role playing is valuable for immersing a trainee in a job she would actually be doing. Retail sales role play in a virtual world.

Train & develop employees = not one but three roles

She talked about value network analysis, and one thing that really struck me was roles – going beyond the “org chart&# to see how people worked and added value. For someone to be considered “top tier&# do they need to excel at one, two or all three of these roles?

Learning’s Role in Innovation

CLO Magazine

Provided that learning and development leaders could and should have a central role in innovation, what is the chief learning officer’s responsibility? Appropriately reconciling roles will be a critical determinant of success. What is L&D’s Role? The world has changed.

The role of the university?

Clark Quinn

What’s the role of K12, and then what’s the role of a university? However, if those are accomplished in K12 (when I’ve previously argued learning how to think might be the role of the university, and now think it’s got to be before then), then what is the role of university? Unhappy in many ways with the current status of education, particularly here in the US, I’ve been thinking a lot about what would make sense.

And each complements a desired organizational breakthrough, recognizing the broader role of learning not just in execution, but in problem-solving, innovation, and more. eLearning Mag publishes short predictions for the year from a variety of elearning folks, and I thought I’d share and elaborate on what I put in: I’m hoping this will be the ‘year of the breakthrough’. Several technologies are poised to cross the chasm: social tools, mobile technologies, and virtual worlds.

Training Trends 2010: What’s happening and so what?

Bottom-Line Performance

Instructional design - and the role of instructional designers - has to change. I just finished giving a talk on training trends - what they are and the “so what’s&# associated with them. Here’s a link to the slides associated with this presentation. We had a nice group of folks participating, and we generated lots of discussion.

Work Context Is Ground Zero for Expanded Role of Training

Living in Learning

How many impactful customer complaints are resolved in training role-plays or simulations?" Our call-to-action breaks both traditions and paradigms and demands a level of readiness to expand our trainig role to embrace a learning ecosystem. "How many sales deals do sales reps close in the classroom? How many process decisions by managers prevent creation of material waste while taking an on-line training course?

Four roles for social media in workplace learning

Clive on Learning

I write this as I travel to Birmingham to participate in a panel discussion with Nick Shackleton-Jones and Robin Hoyle on the role of social media in learning. Here is where blogging can play a valuable role. The discussion forms part of the agenda for the World of Learning Conference, an event that I have enjoyed participating in for something like ten years now. Anyway, this post provides me with an opportunity to clarify my thoughts in preparation for the discussion.

Taxonomy of Learning Theories

E-Learning Provocateur

Academia is teeming with learning theories. Some of them are old, some of them are new. Some are flash-in-the-pan, others stand the test of time and remain applicable to this very day. Some of them are controversial, while others have assumed the aura of conventional wisdom.

Why we need conferences

Clive on Learning

But having spent some time now immersed in The Power of Pull by John Hagel III, John Seely Brown and Lang Davison (2010), I'm convinced that conferences will have an important role to play for years to come. It's easy to think of conferences as rather old hat - top-down and push in an era that is increasingly bottom-up and pull; very un-green when we face huge environmental challenges; very extravagant when everyone but the Chinese is running out of money.
