Instructor: Jennifer Hofmann
Virtualization has resulted in being able to learn almost anywhere, almost any time, and in many, many ways.
If an instructional designer has a solid understanding of when and where learners are consuming content, what instructional methods, techniques and technologies are available, then this messy landscape can be re-imagined as a truly learner-centered classroom.
The last decade has introduced myriad new technologies and methodologies to our toolkits. But this evolution in learning has been messy.
It’s hard for even seasoned learning professionals to articulate the different aspects of modern workplace learning. Techniques such as gamification and technologies such as virtual classrooms often are applied inconsistently and are quickly adopted and then discarded as the latest "flavor of the day."
Where should learning take place? What technologies should be used? What techniques and methods make sense? And what's the difference, anyway?
The answer lies in sorting out the language and then making a decision about how to treat content.
This session will address technologies and techniques associated with modern workplace learning, including: mobile technologies, virtual classrooms, microlearning, social collaborative learning, and more.
