The one-right-answer problem

The eLearning Nomad

Life – including life in the workplace – isn’t made up of one-right-answer problems. When we help people develop skills to become better professionals, we often need to guide them to think critically, solve problems and empower them to take action and make a difference. A lot of e-learning is designed around one-right-answer problems, yet this does not reflect the complexities of the workplace. Answers to complex problems need to be complex as well – just like in real life.

Social First!

Clark Quinn

And as an extreme version of this, let me start by saying we need to start thinking ‘social’ first. When we’re facing a performance problem in the organization, our first resort should be to ask: “would a social solution solve this”?

The important outcomes are going to come from the social network, not from L&D.
