Silly Design

Clark Quinn

Time for a brief rant on interface designs. And, hopefully, we can extract some lessons, because these are just silly design decisions. But there’s one very very silly design decision here. And so, too, is much training. design

from training to learning

Harold Jarche

Here are the highlights — From Training to Learning in the New Economy. Whatever learning needs to happen for getting work done at the front line — on production floors, in sales, or in customer service — often is not generated, or even recognized as needed, by the training organizations.

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. We started a journey on this at the same location last year and we are currently shifting into a formal method with associated tools and training.

Design, value & constraint

Dave Snowden

In Whistler earlier in the year we looked at the wider question of design and moved on in Tasmania to examine design in the context of resilience. In the final retreat of the year we continue the theme of design but this time with a wider focus on value. Cynefin News Training

systems thinking and training

Harold Jarche

The pilot training system outside North America and Europe played a significant role it seems. He mentioned the challenge of training pilots in Asia. The Training Challenge. My interest in these stories is how training can be either part of the problem or part of the solution.

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.

Thoughts on strategy from Training 19

Clark Quinn

So last week I was the strategy track coach for the Training 19 conference. Friend and colleague Michael Allen practiced what he preached while talking about good learning design, as he does. There were good audiences for the talks in a conference focused on doing training!

Levels of Design

Clark Quinn

Kirkpatrick is widely (not widely enough, and wrongly) used as an evaluation tool, but he talked about using it as a design tool, and that perspective made clear for me a problem with our approaches. The point, and this is emphasized by the ‘design’ perspective, is that you are supposed to start with level 4, and work back. And here’s where it can go beyond training: that intervention might be a job aid, or access to a network (which hasn’t been much in the promotion of the model).

From instructor to designer & facilitator

Clark Quinn

While I posted an answer there, I thought I’d post it here too: I see two major roles in that of the ‘teacher’: the designer of learning experiences (pre), and the facilitator of same (during/post). I think the design changes by returning to natural learning approaches, an apprenticeship model (c.f. Tech can make it easier to follow such a design paradigm.

How to Design an Effective LMS Training Program

TOPYX LMS

Like many decision makers, you may be more than ready to improve the effectiveness of your company’s LMS training program. Finding the right LMS is only half the training battle. This may seem like a tough feat, but an effective corporate training program streamlines the process. And, believe it or not, designing this type of program isn’t all that hard to do. Furthermore, designing the right types of these LMS training programs is imperative for organizations.

An integrating design?

Clark Quinn

In a panel at #mlearncon, we were asked how instructional designers could accommodate mobile. I’ve advocated that we consider learning experience design, but increasingly I think we need performance experience design, where we look at the overall performance, and figure out what needs to be in the head, what needs to be in the world, and design them concurrently.

Instructional Design Orthodoxy

Xyleme

I will be dating myself here, but so much of the orthodoxy in the instructional design process was forged back in the late 80’s and early 90’s when the only Computer-Based Training (CBT) tools were Toolbook for the PC, and Hypercard for the Mac. The idea that you might allow scrolling was to many an Instruction Designer taboo. In my blog posts, I’ve been challenging instructional designers to embrace cultural shifts, and evolving technologies rather than brace against them.

What Does the Training Department Do When Training Doesn’t Work?

Charles Jennings

The global training industry is large and in growth again post-2008. Data provided by the US membership organisation Training Industry suggests annual growth around 6% per year since 2009. And it’s not only efficiencies in the training process itself that we need to look for.

Service Design Soft Skill Builder: Empathy

We, the design community, talk (and write and speak) a lot about empathy. Some, at the extremes, position human-centered designers as Platonic figures releasing stakeholders from the shadows of opinion and faceless analytics into the reality of human emotions, needs, and desires.

Instructional design: from “packaging” to “scaffolding”

Jane Hart

Learning in this way might suit some – i.e. those who expect to be trained how to do their jobs, but I’ve read how others get very angry at this approach, about the lack of autonomy it offers, and how it treats them like idiots.

Instructional design is not only seen as a core competency for learning and development/training specialists, but it’s a huge industry, too. Most learning vendors tout their ‘expertise in instructional design’ as a key reason as to why we should engage them to produce learning content.

Instructional Design is for designing instruction. But in the workplace we don’t just learn from instruction, i.e. by being taught in classroom training or online courses.

Safety Training Design

Tony Karrer

Some interesting discussions are going on in the Big Question for February The Learning Circuits Blog: Instructional Design - If - When - How Much. I thought I'd take a cut at an answer based on something we've been involved with recent - the design of safety training. The reality is that much of the training on these kinds of topics is rather boring and mundane because it assumes that its purpose is to teach the person the information in the first place.
