Outlook: Cloudy

PROLOGUE

My head hurts. In a good way.

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.
