Actively Partnering for eLearning Development

Learning Activities that Matter

Learning Rebels

It is time to move away from just movement…to learning activities that matter. They mean well, really – but it can be frustrating to participate in activities that have no connection to the learning at hand. If a trainer is having people participate in activities for the sole reason to keep them focused, engaged and awake – they have bigger problems. Training activities should not only engage the body but the brain. Activities that Matter.

Mission Critical: Leveraging Learning Engineering to Drive Digital Transformation

Speaker: Trish Uhl, Founder of Owl's Ledge LLC and the Talent & Learning Analytics Leadership Forum

Digital is disrupting every part of an organization's value chain at a record pace, creating a critical need to transform operations and employees' ways of working. Formal training alone can't keep up; it's often too slow, too generic, inconvenient, inefficient, unduly expensive and lacks or lags methods for measuring business-related effectiveness. Trish Uhl show you how to start leveraging Learning Engineering, a multidisciplinary approach that combines modern technology, data analytics, decision science, learning sciences and change management with human-centered engineering design methodologies to ultimately deliver targeted learning outcomes and business results that keep pace with the business and merge learning into the flow of work and lead Digital Adoption.

Deeper activities

Clark Quinn

A while ago, I argued for an activity-based curriculum. The In trying to move beyond good, albeittraditional, elearning, I’ve been working hard on the notion of what a meaningful activity (read: practice, task, etc) would be. As The point was to rebel against the usual content-based curriculum, and push us to more meaningful learning. And, of late, I’ve had a chance to reexamine both the curriculum ideas, and the pedagogical implications.

Metacognitive Activity?

Clark Quinn

That is, not only what activity might mean learning, but what mean meta-learning? I started wondering about a vocabulary, but realized that you’d have to have activity that you could actually detect was evidence of meta-learning. To each of the elements, I attributed activities that would constitute learning in that model, and then above it I was thinking what would constitute meta-learning.

Constraints on activities

Clark Quinn

When we design learning activities (per the activity-based learning model ), ideally we’re looking to create an integration of a number of constraints around that assignment. Of course, that’s factored into the objective for this learning activity (which is part of an overall sequence of learning). We also need the challenge in the activity to be in the right range of difficulty for the learner.

The Four “Levels” of Gamification Implementation in Learning Experiences

Speaker: Jonathan Peters, PhD, Chief Motivation Officer, Sententia Gamification

Gamification is an important and powerful strategy for influencing and motivating people. Unfortunately, many people think that gamification means adding a simple activity, creating a computer or a video game, or just adding points, badges, and a leaderboard to their learning program. Tune in to discover the four levels of gamification, and come away with a practical method for bringing gamification to your programs.

Activities for Integrating Learning

Clark Quinn

It draws heavily on the notion of activity -based learning. The learning process is broken up into a series of activities. Each activity starts with giving the learning teams a deliverable they have to create, with a deadline an appropriate distance out. There may be people available for questions, and they’re also being actively watched and coached (less as they go on).

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. That’s my reconciliation of activity and decisions.

Activity or Application?

Clark Quinn

Activity : that the learner takes, and. Now, in many ways, this is similar to my own activity-based design , which is more a curricular model than a pedagogical one, but it foregrounds activity instead of content. Perhaps because I’d been thinking (and whinging) about ‘click to see more’ interactions, I want those activities to mean something! Those are activities, just not cognitively challenging ones.
