Ive done a lot of e-Learning projects, created a lot of courses, but this is the first time that Ive been a part of the strategy itself.

Agile instructional design

Jay Cross's Informal Learning

Instructional design was invented around the time of World War II. Starting virtually from scratch, America had to train millions of men to be soldiers and millions of civilians to make ships and armaments. The training film was born, soon to be followed with the ADDIE model. ADDIE (analyze, design, develop, implement & evaluate) made it possible to manage the process of creating useful training programs systematically. Aesthetics, not practices.

This Learning ‘Project’ Is Not that Serious

CLO Magazine

From an instructional perspective, popular, if oversimplified, design models, such as ADDIE, tend to reinforce this default to treat all work as project work. The Project Management Institute defines a project as temporary, having a beginning and an end, as unique, in terms of its objective, and as having a defined scope and resource requirements. Most of us have argued against one-and-done learning events with little or no follow-up, reinforcement or long-term ROI.

PDR Design Model Supports Shift to Learning Design in the Work Context

Living in Learning

The concept of a learning shift represents a course correction by the USS Training Department. We are under full steam and headed into the shallows, and are in danger of running aground. We are trying to fight an insurgency with an army equipped with tactics and weaponry that do not fit the field of battle. Our tactics need to shift because we no longer serve the expanded scope of the knowledge worker’s environment. Expanded Scope of Discovery.
