Outlook: Cloudy

PROLOGUE

My head hurts. In a good way.

CLOUDS

Challenges in engaging learning, Clark Quinn's latest Learnlets blog post, hit me between the eyes. His post's word cloud made me think design teams need to focus on experiences where learners make and practice.

Learnlets word cloud: What hits you between the eyes?

Reading it deepened my understanding. Quinn's writing about growing his team's ability to produce engaging learning pragmatically. I interpreted pragmatic as meaning practical, logical, maybe even templatized.

BLUE SKIES
I'm an ideas and theories instructional designer: looking for fresh ways of engaging learners. Practical and logical processes matter but not at the expense of creativity and innovation.
 
INN OVATION
Pragmatic innovation in instructional design means looking up and out, informing our development with what others are doing. We want learners who keep coming back, who talk-up their learning experience after it ends.
 
EPILOGUE
Share your work, too?
