Exaptation is something I have blogged on before, most notably in this series of three posts back in 2012 (like 2019 a Grand Slam Year for Wales). The post Cynefin St Davids Day 2019 (2 of 5) appeared first on Cognitive Edge.

best finds of 2019

Harold Jarche

Here are some of the best for 2019. Ultimately, it’s my belief that social networks are systems that can be intentionally designed, and intelligently managed, to ensure that their primary impact is a positive one for the people who use them, and for the world.

Thinking about design ‘thinking’

Dave Snowden

I’ve been thinking about the whole approach we are adopting to design thinking as the Whistler retreat approaches. I’ve designated this as ‘industrialised’ given IDEO’s latest approach to training and certification.

Direct Instruction and Learning Experience Design

Clark Quinn

So it’s time to think a bit deeper about Direct Instruction and Learning Experience Design. And, of course, this is pretty much everything I argue for as being key to successful learning experience design.

The 2019 Artificial Intelligence Index

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

Now in its third year, the 2019 AI Index Report was released this past December. So was the associated 2019 AI Index Data , which includes three times as many data sets as the 2018 edition.

The roots of LXD

Clark Quinn

Instructional design, as is well documented, has it roots in meeting the needs for training in WWII. User experience (UX) came from the Human Computer Interaction (HCI) revolution towards User Centered Design. All items that now are incorporated in design thinking.

Labels for what we do

Clark Quinn

While it’s true for our field as a whole, it’s also true for the specific job of those who design formal learning. He goes through the usual candidates of labels for what we do – instructional designer, learning designer, learner experience designer – and finds flaws.

ATD 2019: Oprah, Seth Godin & “Causing a Ruckus” in Training & Development

Xyleme

ATD 2019 is officially in the books, and attendees walked away from this year’s event with a wealth of actionable tips as well as big picture ideas about the future of Training and Development. From keynotes by Seth Godin and Oprah, to practical tools for visual design and a big picture look at the future of learning management, this year’s conference featured 300+ sessions, 12 content tracks and 3 industry tracks, and drew more than 13,000 attendees to Washington, D.C.

Dave Snowden

Last week I was in Nairobi ase the keynote at a panel discussion on Behavioural Insights for Environment Impact for UNEP sandwiched between two pretty hellish flights. Jules was also on the panel and had done the work to set the event up.

Engaging Learning and the Serious eLearning Manifesto

Clark Quinn

The alignment (EEA: Effectiveness-Engagement Alignment) I found in Engaging Learning was based upon research I did on designing games for learning. So, really, the goals are implicit in the SeM; you shouldn’t be designing learning unless you have some learning goals!

Dimensions of difficulty

Clark Quinn

design strategyAs one of the things I talk about, I was exploring the dimensions of difficulty for performance that guide the solutions we should offer. What determines when we should use performance support , automate approaches, we need formal training, or a blend, or…?

Liminal Cynefin & ‘control’

Dave Snowden

I always emphasis that Cynefin was designed as a conflict resolution framework as much as for understanding decision making – all aspects of sense-making. Something that MassSense was designed to handle on a near real time basis by shifting to the liminal aspect of the chaotic domain.

Theory or Research?

Clark Quinn

There’s a lot of call for evidence-based methods (as mentioned yesterday ): L&D, learning design, and more. The approach I discuss in things like my Learning Experience Design workshops is a synthesis of theories as well. design meta-learning social strategy

Using Agile Processes to Develop AI-Based Solutions

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

In the waterfall development model , a project is broken down into a set of sequential phases, - e.g., conception, analysis, design, construction, testing, deployment, maintenance, - each dependent on the completion of the previous phase.

Trends for 2019?

Clark Quinn

What, on your opinion, are the main Digital Learning (DL) trends for 2019? When we don’t really understand learning, we can be swayed by well-designed distractors. I think our design discipline needs to be smart about when to use each, and how they complement each other.

How do you drive yourself?

Clark Quinn

This was part of the driver of the thinking that showed up in Designing mLearning , how to complement cognition. How do I drive myself? I was asked that in a coaching session. The question is asking how I keep learning.

Direct Instruction or Guided Discovery

Clark Quinn

Content systems not content packages

Clark Quinn

That we should start designing our content into smaller chunks. design strategy technologyIn a conversation last week (ok, an engagement), the topic of content systems came up. Now this is something I’ve argued for before , in several ways.

Linkages matter

Dave Snowden

Another reason is the rapid, and to my mind mistaken, growth of psychometric testing that was an intimate part of the systems dynamics driven change on organisational design of which the likes of Senge were initiators, or rather perpetrators.

The TOC Logical Thinking Process is designed to solve any problem by using necessity and sufficiency logic to find the answer to 3 key questions: What to change?

Learning from Experimentation

Clark Quinn

You should have designed the experiments to answer a question, and the experimental design should have been appropriate (an A-B study, or comparing to baseline, or…).

Blockchain - the Networked Ecosystem is the Business

Level of polish?

Clark Quinn

So, my first concern is the quality of the design. My mantra on design states that it has to be right first. But let’s assume that the design’s right. Perhaps the serious eLearning Design Manifesto? :) We can do better. Gilded bad design is still bad design.

How to Transform a “Big, Old” Company into an Agile Digital Business

What to evaluate?

Clark Quinn

Again, the author raises the importance of being professional, but still seems to be in the ‘if we do good design, it is good’, without seeming to even check to see if the design is addressing something real. design strategy

And I’ve come up with the phrase: Learning Experience Design (LXD) Strategist. Here I’m thinking about helping orgs restructure their design processes, and their org structure, to support delivering learning experience designs. design strategy

Harold Jarche

What we have collected is a motley set of insights, of pragmatic maxims and design recommendations that serve as reminders of what the important issues and pitfalls are in this kind of endeavor.

Tools for LXD?

Clark Quinn

How do you use external resources to keep your design on track? Our cognitive architecture is designed to do this; to help us adapt to the first-level world we evolved in. And, in particular, for design. You might be using templates for good design.

A very insightful framework

Clark Quinn

And that’s about rethinking training to be about transformative experience design, performance support to be included, and informal learning to be also addressed. Jane Hart has just come up with something new and, to me, intriguing.

Dave Snowden

It could be BPR or Design thinking, whatever was the current executive sales tool would be supported by the evidence. I’ve long pointed out to over enthusiastic proponents of ‘story telling’ that the phrase has a double meaning in English and the most dominant one is to tell a story.
