Insight and Inspiration Can Promote Creativity in Learning

Posted by Terry Goins with Star Fisher on August 16, 2018

Are you struggling to be creative? Do your eLearning courses seem uninspiring? If so, do not despair. You may be surprised at the number of instructional designers and trainers who lament their lack of creativity—especially when their businesses expect continuous innovation.

If you want to build creative learning activities, no matter what the medium—in-person, virtual instructor-led, or digital learning—first clarify your purpose for the activity. Ask: “What learning do I want the participants to achieve?” Start with the end goal in mind, or your creativity could miss its mark with recipients.

Learning that Crosses Borders

Posted by Renie McClay on June 20, 2018

Audiences are becoming more and more diverse. With varieties of native languages in the room, it is important to look at what is helpful as well as what may hinder or confuse when designing learning. You may be designing learning for a French-owned firm that needs to train English speakers. Or it may be a US-owned firm, with global customers and employees. It may be something specific like onboarding or selling skills in varying languages and with varying cultural references.

While you may have done instructional design for many years, an expanded definition of instructional design from a global view is the artistic ability to get the lesson across to any culture or in any language. Here are tips and suggestions to help accomplish objectives across a varied audience when designing or delivering training.

Bring Dry Training to Life with Characters, Conflict, and a Realistic Plot

Posted by Brian Ziemba on April 24, 2018

Training content on onboarding information, product knowledge, or processes can be inherently dry and hard to deliver in an engaging manner. But dry or not, this content is important for employees to learn about their workplace, the processes they need to follow, regulations they need to comply with, and changes or initiatives happening throughout the company. It’s up to the training department to deliver this content properly.

However, because this information often does not apply directly to everyday tasks, it’s difficult to train using performance-oriented learning methods. Therefore, before training on informational content, it’s important to consider the learners’ perspective, existing knowledge, and how motivated they are to learn the content.

Create Learner Engagement with a Learning Map

Posted by Joelyne Marshall on April 11, 2018

We are in a time where organizations are offering up robust training programs to their workforces. No longer do learners have a flat, one-instance training event. L&D departments are designing full-scale programs with stages of training for their learners. These programs direct a learner through their learning journey over the course of several weeks or even months. That journey involves multiple stops where the learner will interact with a variety of training deliverables in different formats, such as instructor-led, eLearning, virtual instructor-led, social learning, and self-paced asynchronous learning.

These comprehensive, blended training programs allow learners to engage with the content in a variety of ways. This variety is a bonus for learners and organizations—it enhances learning and content retention and drives the learner toward achieving the training’s business goals. But, these complex programs can create some chaos for the learner if they aren’t organized and structured in a way that the learner can easily navigate them. This is where a learning map comes into play.

Create Engaging Participant Guides

Posted by Brian Ziemba on March 6, 2018

Participant guides can be valuable tools for maintaining learner engagement and reinforcing on-the-job performance when developed as part of instructor-led training. Unfortunately, many times the participant guide is created quickly, if at all, at the end of a project and only includes images of the slides from the presentation. You expect your facilitators to engage the learners, not just to read bullet points on slides. Support your learners' performance by providing high-quality participant guides that are developed concurrently with the facilitator's guides and that provide unique content to the learner.

Caveo's Joe McCahill to Present at 2018 Learning Solutions Conference

Posted by Caveo Learning on February 27, 2018

Joe McCahill, a senior instructional designer with Caveo Learning and founder of the Social Learning Design Group, is among the presenters at the 2018 Learning Solutions Conference & Expo to be held March 27–29 in Orlando.

McCahill's session, "Learner-Generated Content and the Future of Practical Social Learning," is geared toward intermediate to advanced designers and managers and will: "explore social learning within the context of meta-moderation. Meta-moderation invites learners to rank content according to quality, reliability, and usefulness, and these rankings determine which content should be consumed by learners and adapted by IDs. This leads to a targeted, scalable body of knowledge that learners maintain themselves and feel ownership over, as well as more time for instructional designers to focus on custom training needs."

Tips for Creating Reusable Learning Objects

Posted by Joelyne Marshall on January 26, 2018

With the influx of more blended programs for the learners in our organizations, Learning & Development is challenged to design training programs that are more complex and could possibly take more time to develop. With a variety of deliverables in play, those who manage L&D teams and efforts are wise to keep their eyes on the horizon to strategically design programs that service their client’s needs while also taking advantage of efficient ways to develop those comprehensive programs. Repurposing elements—or objects—from and within existing learning deliverables is one way to work toward this efficiency.
