Video - What Does 'Learner Engagement' Mean?

Posted by InSync Training on Apr 23, 2020 4:19:06 PM

We frequently use the term 'learner engagement' in corporate learning. But what does it mean? 

In the traditional face-to-face classroom, instructors can literally see whether a participant has disconnected from the content or is invested in the program. When we move learning online, those standard indicators of engagement disappear with the lack of eye contact, body language, and subtle non-verbal cues.

Recording - Learner Engagement in the Modern Classroom

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.

Grabbing and holding the attention of learners is getting harder and harder. In fact, the average person sends or receives more than 150 text messages a day. This means your learner's attention is not always focused on the content you have designed or are delivering to them.

How do you design instruction that engages and motivates the learner? How do you make learning exciting, interesting, and memorable?

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.
