Four Emerging Technologies that L&D Leaders Need to Consider

Bottom-Line Performance

It’s been “emerging” since 2008… and still only a handful of organizations are using it in a meaningful way. These emerging technologies make me think we can have simulations that are more video driven than computer-code driven.

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.

Types and proportions of learning activities?

Clark Quinn

There are some things that need to be known cold, e.g. emergency procedures, hence the tremendous emphasis on drills in aviation and the military. 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? Let’s break it down.
