Part of keeping employees growing in the workplace is making sure they are engaged.
ASSOCIATION ELEARNING [Providers] Ask The Experts: Scott Oser
| MONDAY, JULY 14, 2014
And so, if you want to translate that to associations I think the real key is that they’re going to have to know what their members’ needs are and be able to forecast a little bit what their members’ needs are going to be and then provide that unique set of education so that their members are always up with the times. What kind of value can they provide to those unique segments that are going to need different skills going forward.

YOUR TRAINING EDGE [Providers] Learner-Centered Instruction in MOOCs
| MONDAY, JANUARY 27, 2014
As instructional designer Karen Sieczka notes , learner-centered training is well tailored to how adults learn—rather than “force-feeding information,” the goal is to provide learners with knowledge and skills that they can immediately apply to their jobs. This can range from providing time in the day for employees to access their courses to ensuring that the courses are compatible with mobile devices. Modern education is currently at a crossroads.

FROM THE COLEFACE [Providers] Digital native or digital immigrant?
| MONDAY, AUGUST 6, 2007
As the people providing them with learning, we need to challenge our assumptions about how learners use technology – which methods need updating and which are constantly effective. Prensky’s metaphor of people being digital natives (intuitively understanding how recent technology works) or digital immigrants (needing support/ training in order to grasp new technology) seems wonderfully rich to me. Here’s an example from recent life.

| MONDAY, APRIL 6, 2009
By decreasing the pre-eminence of legal knowhow, L&D practitioners can focus more on providing learning in the other people-related competencies, which they will typically feel more at home with. • It feels a long time ago since the Clementi review, but now the legal regulators have given tangible recognition that the best people to lead law practices might not be pedantic professional arguers.

CLARK QUINN [Providers] Align, deepen, and space
| TUESDAY, JULY 8, 2014
After these three steps, you’ll want to only include the resources that will lead to success, provide models and examples that will support success, etc, but I believe that, regardless, learners with good practice are likely to get more out of the learning experience than any other action you can take. I was asked about, in regards to the Serious eLearning Manifesto, about how people could begin to realize the potential of eLearning.
CLARK QUINN [Providers] Defining Mobile
| TUESDAY, JUNE 25, 2013
This, to me, seems to provide a better criteria, at least for now. At the recent Guild mLearnCon mobile learning event, I had a thought that seems to answer a long time debate. The debate centers on the definition of a mobile device. The feature/smart phone is obviously a candidate, and tablets seem pretty clearly included too, but the ongoing issue has been whether a laptop counts. And I may have finally discovered a way of looking at it that answers the question.
CLARK QUINN [Providers] Stealth mentoring
| MONDAY, JULY 2, 2012
I think it’s something an app like Tappestry could provide as well, leveraging the Tin Can API, where you might more explicitly see a richer picture of what someone’s doing.

CLARK QUINN [Providers] Expert vs designer: who wins?
| THURSDAY, JULY 3, 2008
Similarly, the developer has to design the game experience around the objective, and while the expert may provide feedback about aesthetic preferences or information helping to establish the audience, at the end the developer has final say on the engagement. We had quite the heated discussion today on a project I’m working on, and one of the emergent issues was whether ‘the expert’ dictates the objectives, or whether the developer could change them.
DOCEBO [Providers] Myth #6: learning and development should try to achieve a ratio of 70:20:10
| MONDAY, APRIL 18, 2016
23% agree that managers provide active support in application of learning in the workflow. Learning and development – Should you strive for a “perfect” ratio of 70:20:10? Should Learning and Development professionals strive for a firm 70:20:10 ratio , or are the numbers more flexible? What does the name “70:20:10” even mean for your team? 70:20:10 is not about trying to achieve a set ratio.
E-LEARNING PROVOCATEUR [Providers] LATI: A better way to measure influence on Twitter?
| WEDNESDAY, JUNE 22, 2011
So notwithstanding complicated and opaque measures like Klout, LATI provides an open and convenient snapshot of digital influence. I’ve never been comfortable with attributing digital influence to the number of followers someone has on Twitter. To me, it’s more a measure of your longevity on the platform. The longer you have been on Twitter, the more followers you will have collected over the years.

CLO MAGAZINE [Providers] Apprenticeships: An Underutilized Development Tool
| WEDNESDAY, JULY 24, 2013
“The main thing that differentiates apprenticeships from internships is that they are highly structured and provide more on-the-job experience and practical, career-relevant learning than internships,” Hanson said. Many businesses rely on cheaper internships to develop entry-level employees, but investing in apprenticeships may yield greater rewards. Unlike the traditional internship, an apprenticeship is an employment model that lasts three to four years.

Even if there are no published goals, the board of directors will have provided guidance to the CEO and the CEO will have plans for next year.

THE ELEARNING NOMAD [Providers] Don’t use the Moodle groups setting for online team work
| TUESDAY, JULY 12, 2016
Once feedback is provided to each team (in the respective team forums), I often observe participants having a quick look at other teams’ work and feedback. When designing eWorkshops in Moodle, I never use the groups setting in forums. The ‘groups’ setting means that participants can only see the work done by their own team. Instead, I create a separate forum for each team. Learners are not blocked from accessing other teams’ work. This often surprises fellow e-course designers.
THE ELEARNING NOMAD [Providers] Universities’ e-tutoring methods should not be used in facilitated professional development
| THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 19, 2015
Furthermore, they should reflect on how they make every written ‘evidence’ in the forums assessable – this gets in the way of providing an online space that could potentially replicate lively debates which are typical of a good face-to-face session.

For example, students must contribute at least twice in each discussion to receive credit for participation.
