Learning modernization cannot be merely shoving legacy content into new technology. It needs to be a transformation in the way organizations approach learning to ensure better utilization of people and resources as the workforce of the future emerges. To be successful, the development of learning ecosystems requires collaboration between information architects, instructional designers, software developers, human resource managers, and others. Teams are applying skills in which they may have never received formal training and, while the principles of classic educational models (e.g., Bloom's Taxonomy) continue to hold true, the means by which we apply them has evolved. No one field has the background skillsets and expertise to accomplish this task alone.

In this session, we'll explore lessons learned from a university/industry collaboration to design a learning ecosystem with a solid learning science foundation capable of utilizing legacy instructional content and evolving to incorporate new strategies and technology. You'll learn how to identify key challenges that can arise during this kind of learning modernization, such as taxonomy development, integration of new with existing technologies, and cross-disciplinary buy-in. And, you'll discuss strategies for overcoming these challenges.

In this session, you will learn:

  • To identify risks in the learning modernization process
  • To identify skills/voices necessary for a successful learning modernization collaboration
  • Strategies for approaching taxonomy development
  • Tips for generating buy-in

Audience:

Designers, managers, senior leaders (directors, VP, CLO, executive, etc.)

Technology discussed in this session:

Learning management systems, skills tracking software, learning record stores, simulation, virtual reality, augmented reality
