UNDERSTANDING LEARNING ENGAGEMENT

Learning leaders have been experiencing learner pushback against poorly designed learning programs. Pushback from the leadership for not delivering enough impact is ever-increasing too. The two are closely linked, I think, and the reason is that the learning programs are missing a vital ingredient—learning engagement!

Is learning engagement missing from your learning initiatives? Chances are, yes!

ENGAGEMENT AND MOTIVATION: A JOURNEY THROUGH SPACE AND TIME

ENGAGEMENT AND MOTIVATION: A JOURNEY THROUGH SPACE AND TIME

Think about engagement and motivation as a professional journey. Motivation is the fuel. Motivation can drive whatever vehicle you choose. You might think of this fuel as intrinsic (the driving force is to feel your accomplishment) and extrinsic (when you get to your destination you might get promoted). You have a full tank at the beginning.

But fuel without a vehicle is just excitement without progress. Engagement is that vehicle that moves you through this journey. Let’s say you pick a car as a vehicle. A car with a full tank. You’re ready to hit the road. Driving around in circles can quickly burn the fuel while you’re getting nowhere. Doing urgent errands instead of keeping on track can also waste your fuel. To drive a car, you’re going to need at least three different types of engagement.

WHY E-LEARNING: INSIGHTS INTO THE WORLD OF ONLINE LEARNING AND DEVELOPMENT

WHY E-LEARNING: INSIGHTS INTO THE WORLD OF ONLINE LEARNING AND DEVELOPMENT

The world today is rapidly progressing on the road to utilization, with the ever-increasing number of technical applications that are used to communicate and pass on knowledge. In a traditional classroom, knowledge acquisition is limited to the information the instructor has and that which they can access. However, connecting students to the outside world enhances their ability to construct new knowledge.

E-learning is an umbrella term that is used to describe a wide variety of electronic ways that enable access to education, and the process in itself. These include: virtual classrooms, web-based learning, computer-based learning, digital collaboration, video and audio recordings, interactive TV and many more. Thus, e-learning is suited to flexible learning methods and distance learning. E-learning can however be coupled with face-to-face instruction, which is called blended learning.

THE MIND SCIENCE BEHIND MICROLEARNING

THE MIND SCIENCE BEHIND MICROLEARNING

Are you a fan of Pringles chips? Ever wondered what goes into their making? The ideal microlearning module may not be as enjoyable as a chip, but it better be a lot more nutritious for the mind. No wonder the making of a good piece of microlearning takes a lot more than 20 minutes and involves some serious mind science.

Let’s go back to school first and snack on some educational psychology theory. Yes, it applies to all learning, adults at work included.

METAVERSE AND L&D

METAVERSE AND L&D

Just as the term “cyberspace” connotes a concept of an online, interconnected digital world, separate and distinct from the real world, the Metaverse, too, is a digital construct. However, the Metaverse is a “hybrid” digital paradigm in which digital objects are used to represent real people, personas, places, concepts, and situations.

At a very basic level, avid video gamers already experience a version of the Metaverse as they explore their 3D gaming environments using avatars and holographic representations of themselves (their gaming personas/characters). Extending that use case further and into the realm of Learning and Development (L&D) isn’t such a stretch of the imagination.

HOW TECHNOLOGY IMPACTS THE LEARNING EXPERIENCE AND TRAINING DEVELOPMENT

HOW TECHNOLOGY IMPACTS THE LEARNING EXPERIENCE AND TRAINING DEVELOPMENT

Has the use of digital technology—including desktop computers, laptops, smartphones, and other devices—changed how people learn? And, if we believe the use of technology has impacted learning, how do we harness the power of new technologies to deliver learning experiences that are effective and engaging?

It’s very important to address these issues as we continue to experience remote and hybrid workplaces supporting a distributed workforce. And while these are somewhat broad questions, we can begin to find the answers we need by asking the journalistic questions: we can examine the who, what, where, when, why, and how of learning to get a sense of the impact technology is having and how that needs to inform our learning design.

GAMIFICATION: A BRIGHTER FUTURE

GAMIFICATION: A BRIGHTER FUTURE

It was circa 2011 when the term «gamification» first began to gain traction in the Learning and Development world. The buzz around the application of gameplay elements in non-gaming settings prompted numerous TED Talks, a sold-out «Gamification Summit» in San Francisco, a glut of books on the subject of gamification, and bold claims about how it was going to revolutionize employee engagement. A decade on and we’re—still—dealing with a global pandemic that has employers justifiably concerned about the levels of motivation and engagement in their dispersed workforce and how this is affecting productivity and resilience. So, do these difficult times provide gamification with the opportunity to really come into its own, get learners more engaged with workplace learning, and prove that it’s more relevant than ever.

INDUCE LEARNING MINDSETS TO KEEP LEARNERS ENGAGED

INDUCE LEARNING MINDSETS TO KEEP LEARNERS ENGAGED

As eLearning experiences continue to scale as the de facto modality for learners in a remote world, it’s increasingly important for designers and developers to craft content that’s engaging, applicable, and empathetic to the needs of learners. Time is a very limited resource, and our job is to convince employees and leaders that learning is worth the investment.

As it stands, it’s simply too easy for learners to disengage with online learning by multitasking, button-smashing through content, or disregarding opportunities altogether. In these all-too-common scenarios, even if the completion rates are high, the amount of actual learning transfer may still be low—in which case, what’s the point? Moreover, research shows that once we think we’re good enough at our jobs (usually after just a few years in a profession), we stop trying to learn and instead focus solely on our daily work.

EFFECTIVE USE OF GAME-BASED ELEARNING IN HIGHER EDUCATION

The theory behind game-based eLearning is that learners learn best when they have goals or targets to reach while also having fun. Game-based eLearning takes the competitive and scoring elements of video games, like points, levels, badges, and leaderboards, and applies them to an instructional context. Elements of game-based learning also include goals, rules, and objectives and can involve conflict, competition, and cooperation.
