A lot has been said about design thinking recently, and a lot of it’s really really technical. That strikes me as ironic when design thinking is supposed to teach us to do the opposite of being geeks!
About fifteen years ago I was asked to help redesign a CPD program.
Yesterday I had coffee with a fellow instructional designer. She spoke about how videos are perfect for some of the things she's tasked with teaching before adding "... of course I don't have the budget to do that". It was the second time I'd heard exactly that line in the last week alone.
After my post on 70:20:10 at the end of last year, I took a bit of a break from posting to read more research on this area and was struck by the findings of a number of studies that show just how crucial it is to create knowledge sharing cultures. It's becoming clear that there is a consensus that it's not only linked to business survival, but to the prospects for Australia as a whole. Our government's economic research stresses that while innovation is vital throughout the OECD now more than ever, Australia's circumstances make innovation our number one priority.
In recent weeks I've spoken about xAPI and in particular how it relates to the idea of 70:20:10.
Last week I foreshadowed the launch of to the Instilled LXP in Australia.
This week I had the pleasure of launching an entirely new eLearning concept - the Instilled Learning Experience Platform (LXP). It really was not until I first saw the Instilled LXP in June this year that I realised just how dated our entire eLearning approach has become.
I have to take my hat off to everyone who just completed the latest xAPI Cohort - all 650 of them! They spent 3 months "together" online for an hour a week from all over the world and learned every aspect of xAPI.
Last week I gave some practical examples of xAPI in use. It was really well received so I thought I'd offer some more this week. This one is by GVM's xAPI collaborators and is timely - it's launching this week to a national Audience across the USA. (Go team!)
