2013 Crystal Ball… Learning Trends – Part 2

In addition to the technological trends and innovations posted in 2013 Crystal Ball…Learning Trends Part 1, Part 2 provides you some learning design strategies to mull over. Topics include: blended learning, customization of learning content, focus on engagement and interaction withcrystal-ball learners, gamification, social learning, and collaborative learning/e-workshops. This is where the art meets the science in education and training and in my opinion, is the point of departure for inspired course development! Customizing courses to enable learners to become active learners who buy into the material, not just because they have to, but because they are totally engaged, is the goal. This means consciously developing relevant activities for the target audience. Read the Custom Training and eLearning blog Part 2 here, and let your imagination play with how you might engage your students in a new way!
