Meet Learning Needs With New Tools and New Thinking
Learning is no longer an activity or luxury that occurs only at specific stages in people’s lives or careers. With the digital revolution, learning has become immediate, real-time, and relevant for all ages in the workforce, in school, or at home. If you are responsible for learning & development or training in the workplace, you’ve seen that the pre-digital models are proving insufficient. We simply aren’t equipped with the methodology to design learning experiences that happen across the flow of work.
Today’s digital universe requires a new model to address instructional design, that takes into account the wealth of new technologies available today. This book provides a new philosophy of learning experience design. Instead of designing training, learn how to design a modern learning cluster. A learning cluster is a set of meaningfully selected and designed learning assets, that are available across your unique learners’ flow of work, directed towards changing performance on-the-job.
Designing for Modern Learning: Beyond ADDIE and SAM offers a new way for the learning & development industry to make an impact. It shows training professionals how to surround learners wtih the learning support they need, when and how they need it, given their unique context. This book reveals the fundamental shifts that have occurred in the learning industry as a result of the digital revolution. It introduces a new model: the Owens-Kadakia Learning Cluster Design Model (OK-LCD Model), broken down into five action-oriented parts that are made memorable by the easy-to-follow mnemonic, CLUSTER:
- Change On-The-Job Behavior
- Learn Learner-To-Learner Differences
- Upgrade Existing Assets
- Surround Learners With Meaningful Assets
- Track Transformation of Everyone’s Results.
In each chapter, the authors share stories of business leaders, L&D professionals, and learners who have successfully adopted the OK-LCD Model, detailing how they altered organizational mindsets to meet the needs of modern learners and their organizations. Included are how-to features, tools, tips, and real-life in practice sections.
Upskill your outdated L&D practices! This is an exciting time to be in L&D. It’s time to join the revolution from courses & classes to learning clusters.
