Hello Learning Cluster Design Community! One of the best ways to understand the LCD Model is to see it in action! At the beginning of the month we were joined by Edoardo Gironi, Founder & CEO of Apprendere, for our Monthly Modern Learning Dialogue. Edoardo shared how the Learning Cluster Design Model fits perfectly with digital learning in organizations and gave real-life examples of how he is currently applying the model. First, Edoardo shared his take on what digital learning actually means. Digital Learning is a learning method based on the use of new digital tools to enable learners to learn in a [...]

Hi Learning Cluster Design Community! One of the biggest questions we get for the Learning Cluster Design (LCD) model is where and how can we provide access to learning clusters we create. Recall, learning clusters is the new L&D deliverable we call for in the model - it's a set of learning assets that surrounds learners, when, where, and how they most want and need them for a particular learning goal. At last month’s modern learning dialogue, we were joined by Consultant and previous VP of L&D at Black Rock, Enid Crystal, who shared a real-life example of how she is working [...]

Hi Learning Cluster Design Community, It seems like just yesterday we were recapping what was an unprecedented year in 2020, and looking towards 2021. While this year also presented it’s challenges, our Learning Cluster Design community remained committed to pushing the boundaries of traditional L&D to create better, more efficient, people-focused learning experiences. This year, we celebrated one full year of delivering the Learning Cluster Design Two Week Practicum in a completely virtual format, and have now had over 600 graduates of the practicum since it launched live in 2015! We’ve had learning professionals (and quite a few non L&D folks) join [...]
At October’s monthly Modern Learning dialogue, based on popular vote via a LinkedIn poll, we dove deep into the topic of learning in the flow of work. In practice, as we start to implement any new concept, we often find ourselves asking, “How will this change be possible in my organization?” In order to answer this question, it’s best to break it down into several more specific and digestible questions. Our community participants started this conversation and provide some fantastic insight into taking on the process of initiating learning in the flow of work. So, let’s start to break down the [...]
I recently explored the topic of modern learning with one of our fellow modern learning partners, leader at Squigl/Truscribe, Derrell Connon. We had a great conversation that revolved around how learning is evolving. Derrell and I explored the idea that adopting an agile mindset has become very popular as of late, but in reality, this has been around for the last 20-25 years. As modern learning designers, we often question how we can move from such a heavily in person learning format to being primarily remote but we forget that we have nearly two decades of resource solutions to utilize. Check [...]
At this November's modern learning monthly dialogue, we were joined by Executive Coach Jen Zach where she shared how she is applying learning clusters to the coaching space. Because coaching is often considered a one-and-done area, Jen walked our community through the process of how learning clusters can be applied and how they benefit the coachee. Jen explained that she had an aha moment about learning clusters when she was asked by a client to come out and provide in-person learning and coaching. In doing the math, Jen realized that with the cost of her coming in plus the cost of [...]
