How is Learning Design doing in Australia? Are we good? Are we innovative? Do we improve our Learning Design processes? Or are we simply too rushed to think about good design and incorporate improvements?

We take a look at Learning Design in Australia at two levels, 1. Learning Design (techniques/frameworks) and 2. Learning Design Process (including maturity and continuous improvement). We share some of our research, talk to an experienced panel, hear from organisations about their Learning Design process and as always state the Learning Cafe point of view. We cover:

Learning Cafe Research 
  • What are the common approaches for Learning Design?
  • Do the design approaches differ for technology-enabled learning?
We Discussion
  • What is the current Learning Design approach and process used in your organisation?
  • Have we restricted ourselves to simple sequential design frameworks which are inadequate for complex and integrated learning? Are our Learning Design processes mature and do we keep improving them?
  • Is Learning Design mostly focused on compliance or systems training?
  • Does the capability of Instruction and Learning Designers need to be enhanced?
  • Are the change approaches for Learning meeting the needs to be responsive and agile?
  • What are some of the emerging models of design outside of learning? Can we borrow from game and social media design?
