Context + Control + Community = Learning

Breakthrough eLearning

A couple of weeks ago I noted that I was beginning to learn Mandarin Chinese via ChinesePod. Based in Shanghai, ChinesePod broadcasts daily online audio lessons. These are free of charge. On top of this, all learners are linked via an interactive online community and can share experiences, ask questions, and learn from each other as well as the experts at ChinesePod. I am entirely in control of my own learning.

Content creation

Learning with e's

One of the most important digital literacies students require today is the ability to create appropriate content. Content creation is an important feature in many personal learning environment (PLE) models, and together with organising and sharing, makes up the cardinal triumvirate of skills that provides learners with a clear advantage. If you subscribe to constructivist theories of learning, you will understand why the creation of content is important in any context.

Interacting with SMEs is a component; digesting down into the critical decisions, and then embedding practice in contexts. It’s creative, and while drawing on the strengths of the team, it’s the source of engagement strategy as well as learning outcomes. All of them! So we’re talking a variety of roles here. This may overlap with… Audio : this is similar to video, but works with it. And, of course, oversight.

The role of L&D (Learning and Development) has clearly expanded, pivoting around the new paradigm of ‘Learning’. In the post-pandemic world, the L&D teams will have to do things differently in order to meet expectations of the business.

Are you going digital?

Clear Lessons

Online learning often relates to things such as eLearning, webinars and online communities. But there’s a whole lot of technology that supports the offline environment. The report also found that 50% of employers have a digital skills gap. Nesta warns against funding training in those digital skills that are soon going to be on the wane – such as data input and preparation of payroll, tax reports and invoice processing.

Online courses must die!

E-Learning Provocateur

There’s method in my madness… The myth of rapid authoring. The proliferation of so-called rapid authoring tools over the last few years has coincided with an explosion in the number of online courses developed in-house. In tandem with this trend, though, has been the increasingly familiar cry of “It’s not interactive!&#. Increasing the number of clicks required to view the content does not make it more interactive.

Learning with e's

I can count on the fingers of one hand the times I have learnt something significant without the help or influence of others (and counting on my fingers wasn't learnt without help, believe me). Conversation is of course often technologically mediated in this digital age. We can use text, audio or video in a number of modes and through a mind dazzling range of technologies. And there is a record - an archive - of our conversation if we want one.

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.

Following is a largely unedited version of conference notes that I have just distributed internally where I work. As a blog post it’s probably pretty crap – too long, too much scrolling, but as a record of the event, and a method for me to retain my learning, it is just dandy, thank you. Hopefully you, my brave reader, can get similar value from my scribblings, but I make no apology for the size or the content of this blog post. “4 out of 5 Doctors agree.
