Matthew Farmer's curator insight, January 5, 1:39 AM

At the start of a New Year, it's good to take stock of what might be in store ahead of us. Here are 8 trends for 2015 highlighted by Connie Malamed of The e-Learning Coach.


Trends like showing your work, integrating design thinking and creating learning experience rather than courses transcend all forms of learning (not just the digital world) but of course the other megatrend is that some form of digitalisation will feature in more and more learning interventions

Shannon Banks's curator insight, January 5, 7:48 AM

Love this list of learning trends - and thrilled to see the shift to greater experiential learning. Thanks @matfarmer!
