A big thanks to everyone who attended yesterday – a wonderful chatty group as always.  And thank you to eLearning Industry for hosting our discussion of learning technology and theory!

You can watch the recording or take a look at the slides:

The slide deck suggests some books that relate to the topics of skills and competencies.  I also mentioned articles on various topics, so here are those additional links:

Here’s the full session description:

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
