[Free Webinar!] Let The Learner Lead: How Learning Technology Can Support Skills, Competencies, & Constructivism

So the last webinar was a little crazy in a very good way.  We had hundreds of people attend live or watch the recording to learn about how to spice up a training program with no budget, and persuade leadership to provide a larger budget next year.

Let’s talk about next week!  I’m doing a fun “learning theory” oriented topic for eLearning Industry.  We’re talking about skills, competencies, and constructivism – specifically how to use learning technology to support these elements within a learning environment.  You can register here for free or read the description below.

I love to talk about different learning theories like constructivism, and really enjoy when class participants bring their own ideas of why and how constructivism and other learning approaches should be employed.  I do not believe that constructivism is “the answer” or the correct approach in all situations.  That would be awfully boring, wouldn’t it?  We as instructional designers should pick the right approach for each situation.  Let’s talk about some of our options during class.  Please bring your ideas – we always have a chatty, involved audience.

Let The Learner Lead: How Learning Technology Can Support Skills, Competencies, & Constructivism

How do you encourage a person to learn without telling them what to believe? How do you assess skills without asking learners to memorize facts? It’s all in the learning environment.

Many learning professionals incorporate constructivism into their instructional design approach. Constructivism seeks to actively involve the learner in a process of meaning and knowledge construction. Learners are exposed to an environment and framework that allows them to derive meaning as opposed to passively receiving information.

Katrina Marie Baker, Senior Learning Evangelist at Adobe, will provide food for thought on the following points:

  • Definitions of constructivism and some related terms, such as project-based, experiential, and inquiry-based learning
  • Benefits and limitations of constructivism
  • How constructivism can be applied to a training course or program
  • How to create an effective learning environment using technology
  • Suggested reading and additional resources

Group discussion will take place throughout the session.
