Share Best Practices - Patterns

Tony Karrer

So, the first thing I did was to quickly search my blog for any mention of "best practice" – whew, I don't use the term much. Dodged that bullet. :) Patterns and Knowledge Work I understand the concern that when you share best practices, you may come out with very different results.

Collective intelligence patterns

Clark Quinn

He just spoke at the celebration of Doug Engelbart’s work, and while I couldn’t attend, I was looking for blog postings and found his slide deck. In his presentation on The Landscape of Collective Intelligence, he comes up with four characteristics of design patterns (or genes, as he calls them): What (strategy), Who (staffing), How (structure & process), & Why (incentives/alignment).

I argued by implication that traditional design thinking prematurely converges on a requirement with is then throw over the wall the creatives to ideate a solution. Only once a pattern emerges should you move it into a more formal process: the complex to complicated shift.

Training Design

Tony Karrer

I've been struggling a bit to capture a concept that I believe represents a fairly fundamental shift in how we need to think about Training Design. Oh, and I called it Learning Design in the diagrams, but I'm afraid that it's really more about Training Design.

All Social is Learning | Organizational Knowledge Design

If events occur as predicted, we reinforce that cognitive pattern for the next use (naturally, we have the ability to learn the wrong things here). If they do not, we reconsider our pattern assessment logic. All Social is Learning | Organizational Knowledge Design [.]

eLearning Design - Posts about Designing eLearning

Tony Karrer

I received a question about a particular eLearning Design challenge that someone was facing and I realized that the title of my blog and the way I post doesn't really do justice to talking about design and patterns in designing eLearning in this blog. I'll try to work on that, but here's a list of posts that are relevant to eLearning design and eLearning patterns: What Clients Really Want The basis for many of the eLearning design decisions.

The evolution of design to amplify flow

John Hagel

If we want to understand the importance of flows in our world, the new book Design in Nature released this week by Adrian Bejan and J. As with most great books, this one is impossible to summarize in a brief blog, but I will try to offer enough of a glimpse to tease you into buying and reading the book.   By pulling back from individual disciplines, it identifies patterns that were either missed or misunderstood in more narrow contexts.

[liveblog] Judith Donath on designing for sociality (“Social Machines”)

David Weinberger

I read it this weekend and it is a rich work that explores the ways in which good design can improve our online sociality. NOTE: Live-blogging. Judith begins by saying that the theme of the book is the importance of online social interaction and designing for it. She uses a Mark Twain story [" Was the World Made for Man? "] about an oyster’s point of view to remind us that online design isn’t really all that evolved. A: The Web set design back tremendously.

What Makes a Design Technologist?

Adaptive Path

More and more I am hearing UX practitioners talk about making the thing that we design. This often turns to discussions around prototyping and bridging the gap between design and implementation. As a Design Technologist, this is right in my sweet spot. For years my career was focused on the engineering side of projects and I cannot help but have that programmer part of my brain light up when working on design or strategy.

Learning Design Tools (Demonstrations)

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

Continutaion of IMS 2009 in Montreal blog coverage. TELOS - Gilbert Paquette IMS Learning Design (IMS-LD) is a bridge between design and delivery. And you need repositories of LD patterns. It is designed to address various needs, for example, K-12 lesson plans, higher education learning patterns, or workplace training. TELOS isn't exactly an LD designer and player, it's an educational modeling designer and player that exports to IMS-LD.

The Future IMS Learning Design

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

More blog coverage from IMS in Montreal. The Future IMS Learning Design What is the future of learning design? Joel Greenberg My own personal view: maybe the world is moving on, and maybe the idea of 'design' is a bit old fashioned. Instead of trying to systematize, to sequence, a more appropriate approach is based around patterns and connections. The idea is to lead academics to a lightweight narrative, and having them design around it.

Shaming, safety, & misconceptions

Clark Quinn

Another twitter debate , another blog post. Instead it was about whether the designers would feel proscribed from making real errors because of their expectation of learner’s emotions. Our errors don’t tend to be random (there is some randomness), but instead are patterned. Instead, as I’ve said , learning should be designed action and guided reflection. So our design should prevent shaming, but by making it safe to fail, not preventing failure.

Identity

Dave Snowden

Identity switches also change the way we perceive the world, they create cognitive activation patterns that filter what we see. But, and this is more scary, the narrative patterns and feedback loops can have a profound effect on who we are, how we perceive the world and how we act in it.

So it was common for Google’s indexes of blogs to be a day or more old. But they mostly covered blogs and sites with RSS feeds. Which made sense, since blogs were the most live part of the Web back then. The practices are blogging and syndication.

Why models matter

Clark Quinn

I recognize that I talk a lot in concepts, e.g. these blog posts and diagrams, but there’s a principled reason: I’m trying to give you a flexible basis, models, to apply to your own situation. Our brains are pattern matchers, and the more we observe a pattern, the more likely it will remind us of something, a model. Consequently, it’s also one of the things I push as a key improvement to learning design. design meta-learning strategy
