Needs analysis with feeling

Needs analysis with feeling | Innovative Instructional Design | Scoop.it
Design thinking is a human-centered approach to problem solving. It's an iteratve and responsive process. For instructional designers (IDs), design thinking should be part of what we do. Despite pressures to develop learning experiences as "one-and-done" events, our designed experiences should be intentionally learner-centered and dynamic. Even though there's a natural synergy between ID processes and design…
callooh's insight:
Empathy mapping is an important approach to use during a needs analysis phase so that we can be truly learner-centered.

The 6 Stages of a Google Design Sprint

The 6 Stages of a Google Design Sprint | Innovative Instructional Design | Scoop.it
callooh's insight:

Why am I including this in a site on instructional design? Really this is what we should be doing as IDs/learning experience developers. I'd modify this somewhat to make sure the understand phase includes going to the frontline--your learners--rather than relying entirely on subject matter experts for setting your course re: user needs. What IDs don't do enough of within the context of ADDIE--carving out time for divergent and convergent thinking as many often leap to the first solution stakeholders offer or solutions they feel very comfortable with. It's a tricky balance for us, because while we have clients/stakeholders requesting our services, we have to vigilently protect the interests of the learners we serve. It takes discipline to keep asking what can I do better? What emerging techniques might better serve my learners' needs?

Organizational Culture Of Learning Needs To Change For The 70:20:10 Method To Work - eLearning Industry

Organizational Culture Of Learning Needs To Change For The 70:20:10 Method To Work - eLearning Industry | Innovative Instructional Design | Scoop.it
The Increasing Use Of 70:20:10 Model: For 70:20:10 to truly work, there needs to be a change in an organizational culture of learning.
callooh's insight:

This article strips away some of the hype associated with the 70:20:10 framework. Often when folks talk about the 70 part, it's as if it occurs successfully organically, unsupported, and in isolation. It's almost the excuse for --"We won't train to support or reinforce actionable problem-solving skills because training is just an artefact anyway", accompanied by the belief that if you provide an enterprise social collaboration platforms people will naturally use it for informal learning. This article resonates with me because it urges that no one "solution" exists in isolation. Our job in Learning & Development is to provide a system of aligned solutions. With increasing workloads, people need to see that conscious learning in the 70 area needs a bit of practice and that sharing structures need to be valued at a leadership level as well as at the frontline level.
