A framework for content curation

E-Learning Provocateur

Truisms such as this one are typically met with suspicion from certain quarters of the L&D community, but in this case the research on the comparative efficacies of lectures, worked examples, PBL etc appears to add up. For example, it may inform the sequence of an online course. (In

25 more real-world examples of Virtual Reality

E-Learning Provocateur

The inaugural #VRwolweek unearthed 20 real-world examples of the emerging technology, and the enduring popularity of that blog post tells me that we are hungry for more. If used as a primer for training in real life, then it’s an engaging example of setting up an employee for success.

Where is L&D heading?

5 papers every learning professional should read

E-Learning Provocateur

While blogs (for example) certainly have their place in the discourse, so too do peer-reviewed publications. I don’t read as many journal articles as I’d like.

Louder than words

The joy of UX

But I decided to look on the bright side and consider this an opportunity to expand my sample size. Imagine how the public would augment certain corporate logos, for example; those corporations wouldn’t want anything derogatory propagated across the general Aurasmasphere.

Game-based learning on a shoestring

E-Learning Provocateur

For example, suppose you incorporate the game into a team-building workshop. Game-based learning doesn’t have to break the bank. That was the key point of my presentation at The Learning Assembly in Melbourne last week.

Painting by numbers

For example, your data may be the weights of 10,000 people. For example, if you were to calculate the average of those ten thousand weights, you’d have a comprehensible number that is inherently meaningful. A lifetime ago I graduated as an environmental biologist.

Collateral damage

E-Learning Provocateur

For example, a deduction from the literature might be that a teacher need not tailor his or her delivery to meet the needs of the audience. Let me illustrate my concern here with a personal example.

Battle scars

E-Learning Provocateur

For example, should we get more girls into STEM? There’s an ugly trend on Australian television that’s been going on for quite a while. I hoped it would fade away but it only seems to be getting worse.

Let’s get rid of the instructional designers!

E-Learning Provocateur

In a corporate organisation, for example, the leaders will typically initiate the instructional design project, an expert designer will then analyse the situation and create a design, and finally, the leaders will review the design and either approve it or reject it.

The grassroots of learning

E-Learning Provocateur

A common example is bamboo, whose rhizome enables it to spread like wildfire. Dave posited educational technology is a prime example. For example, when the learner is a novice in a particular field, they don’t know what they don’t know.

I start this post by thanking Angela Towndrow , a fellow Aussie whom I met virtually via a mooc, and from whom I continue to draw insights on things related to education. After reading my previous post Let’s get rid of the instructors!

Is the pedagogy of MOOCs flawed?

E-Learning Provocateur

That of course is not to say that the e-learning designer is prevented from using these devices; for example, he or she might leverage other non-LMS technology within the organisation or in the cloud. This is a question that I tackle in my Udemy course The Wide World of MOOCs.

Reframing the capability framework

E-Learning Provocateur

I saw it as yet another example of HR fluff. There once was a time when I didn’t respect the capability framework. You want me to be innovative? No kidding. And collaborative? What a great idea! And you want me to focus on our customers? Crikey, why didn’t I think of that?!

The 70:20:10 lens

E-Learning Provocateur

I continue to reject the notion that 70:20:10 is a formula or a goal, because it is not a model of what “should be” For example, we needn’t assign 70% of our time, effort and money on OTJ interventions, 20% on social learning, and 10% on formal training.

The 3 mindsets of m-learning

The good life

E-Learning Provocateur

For example, I suggest performance appraisals be frequent, short, and feedback rich. In a previous role I had cause to draw up an employee lifecycle. Despite my years in HR up until that point, it wasn’t something that had ever occurred to me to do.

M-Learning’s dirty little secrets

E-Learning Provocateur

The future of MOOCs

E-Learning Provocateur

One way to do that is to leverage MOOCs for content delivery and provide value-added instruction (discussion, Q&A, worked examples, role plays etc) to local students – who of course will pay a premium for the privilege. MOOCs get a bad rap.
