Why Companies Need a Chief Learning Architect

Why Companies Need a Chief Learning Architect | Organizational Learning and Development | Scoop.it
The Bersin by Deloitte Analyst Blog
Holly MacDonald's insight:

A learning architecture deliberately constrains what tools you will use, it fits them into a model that reflects your different learning modalities, and it provides a guideline for the L&D and business leaders to develop and deliver training and knowledge sharing in an easy to use and easy to locate format.  So we need an "architecture" which uses standard tools, an easy to use interface, and a set of platforms that manage content, formal and informal programs, mobile access, and analytics.

Holly MacDonald's insight:

I really enjoy Harold's systems-thinking. He identifies that much of our desire to boil learning down to simple solutions is misguided. We actually need a much more complex approach. Once you land on his blog, I enourage you to keep reading.

callooh's curator insight, October 23, 2013 5:27 AM

This is instructional design 101, but the only thing I'd emphacize/add is that questions that support "understanding" have to lead to more than a passive, abstract recognition of concepts and a problem space but also to a learner's own formulation of solutions in that problem space. We  also have to provide opportunities to test those solutions in a safe space (whether it's a face-to-face training space or online or in an informal learning sandbox).. Love the quoite about "retrieval practice paired with context alignment"--so important.

ghbrett's curator insight, October 23, 2013 9:29 AM

Scenarios present problems within a context. Context is often not well understood, but an important issue in dealing with real world problem solving. As the old saying sort of goes, "If you only have a hammer every problem is a nail."  Within the context of a scenario the student / learner needs to pick the correct set of "tools" to match the needs presented. This article also presents some ideas for instructional designers as well. A good Read.

Clive on Learning: The new self-directed learning toolkit

Margaret Driscoll, Learning Organization Librarian's curator insight, September 26, 2013 7:43 AM
Videos can be easily delivered to any device and can be highly-engaging as long as they are kept short and sweet. ...Web articles and PDFs are not a glamorous or high-tech solution, but they are the resources we normally turn to for a more in-depth examination of an issue. ...Scenarios are the one ingredient of contemporary e-learning which I would keep in my everyday toolkit. ...A forum is another simple, inexpensive tool which sits nicely alongside the packaged self-directed materials. ...Links might seem too trivial to be considered a self-directed core learning tool, but they act as a gateway to all sorts of other resources beyond the packaged materials that you have put together. ...

PerformanceXpress — E-Learning Strategy: A Framework for Success

PerformanceXpress — E-Learning Strategy: A Framework for Success | Organizational Learning and Development | Scoop.it
An IT department recently asked me to develop an e-learning course about one of their applications. One of my first steps was to contact the training manager of that organization and ask her what type of course would fit into her e-learning strategy. “What do you mean by e-learning strategy,” I heard on the other end of the phone. I started to explain, but found that what she really wanted to know was, “Why do I need an e-learning strategy?”

Many years ago, Allison Rossett wrote this saying on a flipchart: “No Naked Training.” It’s the phrase I remember most from a day she spent with the Training Design & Technology folks in SunU. ...
Holly MacDonald's insight:

Great advice here: "A training program without additional support, well, it’s just “naked.” That can be a recipe for failure (where people don’t use their new skills)."

Learning with 'e's: Courses, or learning episodes? | Organizational Learning and Development | Scoop.it
Holly MacDonald's insight:

Couldn't agree more: 

The bite size learning experience is sometimes all that is needed to raise productivity, raise awareness or improve safety within the workplace. Also, such disaggregation of learning content provides learners with a greater choice of learning and development possibilities, where smaller and more focused experiences take less time to complete away from the job, and 'just enough' learning is achieved
