Converting to Modern Learning? It’s More than E-Learning.

When you think of “converting to modern learning,” what comes to mind for you? Is it abandoning one-and-done training events for a strictly online/eLearning experience? If that was your thought, you’re not alone.  Most L&D organizations, as they started facing the pandemic in 2020, scrambled to turn every face to face training program into an e-learning. But that isn’t modern. Nor is it sufficient to make a business-impacting difference in talent’s capability. Traditionally, L&D has overwhelmingly focused on new moments of learning need, and that has typically manifested itself in the sole development of one-and-done formal learning events. Every topic [...]

New Learning Assets to Support You!

Learning Assets for  Your Modern Learning Journey Thank you for being a part of the conversation around what the modern learner needs and how learning design professionals can best support learners.

This difference in approach also means incorporating a variety of means for delivering those learning assets. We recognize the importance of delivering learning solutions and assets across multiple times, ways, and places. If we’re not able to offer learners a variety of [...]

The Power of the Strategic Performance Objective

Ask an LCD Consultant The Power of the Strategic Performance Objective In one of our past LCD Practicums, we had a great dialogue around the elements of the Strategic Performance Objective (SPO), which is a key deliverable of the Change On-the-Job Behavior Action of the LCD model. The question emerged, "How do I make sure I'm making the most use of the SPO?" In traditional L&D, we have typically defined our goals and our own success within the limitations of what can be accomplished in the classroom or by the end of a course. Why? Because not only is this what [...]

Are you surrounding your learners with learning assets yet?

As I look back on the last two years, I'm proud of all the work we've accomplished in spreading the LCD model. But I still see a lot of room to grow! So many of you want to learning to have lasting impact and appreciate the idea of surrounding learners with learning assets, in a time, place, and way that works for their needs. So many of you share our desire to break out of the one and done learning design paradigm. If you haven't yet built your capability to make this dream a reality, is now the time for you? Starting [...]

Why Aren’t My Social Learning Channels Working?

Diagnosing Social Learning Engagement Issues Today’s question came from our January 2022 2-Week Learning Cluster Design Public Practicum, where Kristen, an Instructional Designer, asked the following question: “I can design social assets; however, what I'm seeing across projects and solutions is they aren't engaging in social channels. For example, we'll ask them to give a thumbs up if they found a podcast beneficial or we'll ask a specific question and ask them to post an answer and we don't get a single response. How should we handle this part of Surround if we're finding they hesitate to engage socially?” First, let’s [...]
