Reflections On The Learning Architecture

Following on from my last post, just sketching up the eight aspects of Learning Architecture: the aim of this is to create a ‘basket’ of elements, any of which can be bought in by a particular organisation, to give an underlying rigour and effectiveness to the learning. The premise is really one of flavour: an organisation may wish to develop a palette that suits it’s footprint and circumstance. Note this is absolutely in no way about templates, the last gasp of the desperate: this is about empowering instructional designers, within a scaffolding of guiding principles, that they can innovate within.

The Learning Architecture

I think, in my mind, it’s a workshop manual, covering the neurology of learning, the art of learning, and the everyday reality of the learner. So, in that sense, this sits as quite practical and pragmatic material, but so vital: as we adapt our organisations, to be fit for the Social Age, it’s easy to focus on the hard structural elements, but the foundations, adapting our mindset and approach to learning, are key too.

Note that i see this work as very evolutionary: my own understanding of how we design effective learning, in a rapidly evolving ecosystem of knowledge, automation, application and creation, continues to change.
