Engaging learners has always been a challenge. Not only has training evolved into a blended learning model, the modern classroom is influenced by multicultural cohorts, a mobile workforce, and social networking tools. Managing these influences and integrating them into a blended program requires planning, training, and understanding from all members of the training delivery team.

It starts with language. Engagement, interaction, collaboration : These terms are often used interchangeably, and with little thought regarding what they actually mean, how they might be measured, and how they influence the learner experience and outcome.

Does your personal expectation of learning align with how you learned 10, 20, or even 30 years ago? Of course not. Because you are a modern learner! You have a choice in how you learn, and so do the learners you're developing and designing training content for.

The modern workplace requires us to develop strategies that engage your modern learners, keeping your audience and the anticipated learning environment in mind. Not all learning needs to be formally scheduled or assessed. As a matter of fact, most modern learning takes place in the moment of need. The design of the learning will be influenced by where and when learning is anticipated to occur, and success will be dependent on the technology selection, implementation strategy (stand alone, blended, or micro-learning), and design approach.
