Quickest Route from Idea to Action

If you’ve attended one of my sessions or shot the breeze with me about learning design, there’s a high likelihood the conversation took a turn into what it takes for new ideas to catch hold.

I’m pretty passionate about it because a large percentage of breakout sessions, webinars, and eLearning courses are designed as information fire hoses that we ask our learners to put their face in for a sip.

To transition from informational to transformational learning experiences we must apply full cycle learning design (Attend, Analyze, Associate, Apply) which means we design every learning opportunity to engage brains, connect and build upon what’s already known, facilitate reflection and critical thinking about the subject, and offer opportunities for taking action on the new material.
