Recently we’ve realized the time for narrow specialization in the business of learning has passed. The last decade has introduced a myriad of new technologies and methodologies to our toolkits. No longer is any one learning treatment standalone. Rather, every piece in a blend interconnects. For example, a virtual classroom with self-guided eLearning, can serve as a follow-up to in-person learning events. The evolution in learning has not only changed the classroom experience for our learners, but for us the practitioners, as well.
Today’s training professional is designer, developer, facilitator, and more. Ultimately, it's our job to deliver the right content to the right audience at the right time, as Learning Experience Architects. This modern role comes with a range of concerns, including:
- Business of Learning – How to balance business requirements with the needs of modern learners?
- Managing Mindsets – How to help to evolve perceptions of learners, designers, facilitators, clients, and stakeholders so we can maximize the potential of blended learning?
- Upskilling – With so many tools available, and new ones all the time, how to prioritize our own development needs?
- Making the right design choices – How to determine if techniques like social collaborative learning or simulations are good options, and what's the best way to make them available to our audience?
- Creating connections and encouraging collaboration – Social media and mobile devices are keeping us more connected than ever. How to strategically establish collaboration as a valued part of our blended learning designs?
- Keeping ahead of trends in educational technology – With all we need to know right now, how to keep up with what’s next?
Join us as we discuss the needs of the modern Learning Experience Architect, and gain an introduction to a set of resources that you can incorporate into your own Personal Learning Network.
