Instructor: Catherine Lombardozzi, Ed.D
Many learning professionals are familiar with the call to curate resources rather than create formal training programs, but the details on how to transition to a curation strategy are less clear. How do we enable employee learning and development without structuring a series of specific activities?
In this session, you’ll be introduced to a learning environment design approach that gives you a framework for aligning formal, informal, social, developmental, and experiential learning toward development of a specific knowledge base or skill. This approach goes well beyond simply unleashing people to find materials on the internet. Instead, this approach helps you to craft a comprehensive strategy that is nonetheless flexible and accessible for learning in the flow of work.
- Describe a variety of strategies for designing environments that support self-directed learning
- Determine when curation makes sense, instead of or in addition to, a formal training strategy
- Conceptualize how to align multiple resources and activities that are curated from a learning and performance ecosystem to address a specific learning need
- Identify factors that can support and inhibit people’s ability to take full advantage of the learning and performance ecosystem
