P&D Strategies

Clark Quinn

In an article , Jared Spool talks about the strategies he sees UX leaders using. He lists 3 examples, and talks about how your strategies need to change depending on where you are in relation to the organization. It made me think about what P&D strategies could and should be.

Stop creating, selling, and buying garbage!

Clark Quinn

One of the causes is unenlightened designers. You know, it’s not like one dreams of being an instructional designer as a kid. This is not to touch on their commitment, but even if they did have courses, they’d likely still not be exposed to much about the emotional side, for instance. Good learning design is not something you pick up in a one week course, sadly. That’s the designer’s job, but they’re not equipped.

Labels for what we do

The same collaboration happens with design.

Because quality matters

Clark Quinn

They might be persuaded to buy products that can’t really deliver what’s promised. Yet we still see strategies limited to courses, and courses designed poorly, and thus money being wasted that could be doing good. We are seeing more people interested in improving their learning designs despite considerable budget and time pressures. design meta-learning strategyI was reflecting on some of the actions my colleagues and I take.

Manifesting in principle

Clark Quinn

My thoughts are related: Tool vendors should ensure that their tools can support designers interested in these elements. The real issue is in the design. Of course, we’d like them to do so regardless! I’ve argued in the past that better design doesn’t take longer. Similarly, if you’re buying pre-made content (aka shelfware), you should check to see if it also meets these standards. design strategy

Carrying forward

Clark Quinn

During my presentation in Minneapolis on future-looking applications of technology to learning, the usual and completely understandable question came up about how to change an organization to buy-in to this new way of acting in the world: to start focusing on performance outcomes and not courses. I suggested making small changes in what was being done now: push back a bit on the immediate request for a course, and start really diving into the real performance problem.

The Legend of Apple and Xerox PARC and the Truth About Innovation

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

In 1979, Steve Jobs asked Xerox to let him tour PARC, and in return he would allow Xerox to buy a hundred thousand shares of Apple for a million dollars. Jobs raced back to Apple and told his engineers to change the course of the personal computers under development and copy the Alto’s advanced capabilities he had just been shown at PARC. But, did they actually steal the design for the Lisa and the Macintosh from Xerox, the legend implies?

A case for the LMS?

Clark Quinn

Harold put up a post that the “ LMS is no longer the centre of the universe “, while Jane asked “ what is the future of the LMS “ Both of them are recognizing the point I make about the scope of learning in thinking about performance: it’s more than just courses, it’s the whole ecosystem. Providing access to courses is a good thing, as there are situations where formal learning is the appropriate approach. That’s a course-centric model.
