Strategies for transformation 2: from synchronous to asynchronous
Clive on Learning
JUNE 14, 2013
The second step on the route to transformation is a shift from interventions that are synchronous to those that are asynchronous. Asynchronous activities, on the other hand, are self-paced; they allow the learner to determine when and for how long they undertake self-study activities or communicate with fellow learners or trainers. Like each of the recommendations in this series, the change from synchronous to asynchronous represents a movement of a slider, not a switch on or off.
