    Christopher Adams

    Most instructional designers are adept at conducting needs assessments, but designers often face an uncomfortable client conversation when an assessment reveals that learning (or learning alone) will not address the needs they’ve uncovered.

    In this session, we’ll explore a method for navigating this conversation, by identifying three root cause categories which underlie business and performance results. We’ll discuss root cause examples and both instructional and non-instructional solutions appropriate to each category. Finally, we’ll discuss a process for helping your client select the right set of solutions.

    What is the Modern Classroom?

    Today’s learners participate in a classroom that’s radically different than previous iterations because it’s an experience, not a physical place.  

    • Technology: We use a number of technologies in the modern classroom, including social collaborative tools, virtual classroom technologies, and infographics. Technology’s purpose is to connect members of the workforce.

    • Trends: Today’s workforce is global, mobile, and social, and these trends are redefining our classroom.

    • Places of learning: Jennifer maintains that learning takes place in one of four locations - in a classroom, at the learner’s desk, on a mobile device, and on the job.

    Who are Modern Learners?

    Research by Bersin and ATD identifies that today’s modern workplace learners are demographically and geographically dispersed. Contrary to popular belief, learners aren’t just millennials. To this point, Jennifer shares, “I was teaching a face-to-face class recently and the question was, 'How do we engage millennials in pull training?' Participants pulled together for 20 minutes and the answer for several people was, 'Everything that engages millennials would engage me, too.' The problem is that I didn’t expect this. I have a lower expectation of engagement, and if we design this very engaging content, it would engage all of our learners, not just millennials. We’re raising the bar here."

    What Is and Isn’t Learner Engagement?

    Before we can create learner engagement, we have to understand it on a fundamental level. Jennifer states, “Learner engagement is NOT learner motivation, attitude, active participation or trainer competence.”
