For many years, we have benefited from Simon Sinek’s ‘Start with why’. This inspiring idea also guided learning designers in their approach although it originates from a leadership and marketing perspective. In the era of Learner eXperience Design, it’s time to put the learner back in the centre of our design. To do so, we have to replace the ‘why’ with ‘who’ and create the ‘Golden Circle for learning design’.

Why ‘Start with why’ is a pitfall for learning design:

  • Start with WHO to really understand the people that have to get the job done;
  • Explore different types of WHAT kind of ‘jobs to be done’ for real empathy;
  • Understand the characteristics of the context WHERE the job takes place.

Use your understanding to design the right blend of learning and performance support interventions and modalities

Even more inspiration about learning?

Here are some interesting blogs from Ger to get you started.

If training is the solution, what is the problem?

People who are good at their job usually have one thing in common: They have passion for the things they do. Although it’s no surprise that passion can be a major contributor to success, it can also work against you. How do we prevent our passion for learning from working against us when we develop blended learning?

Ger’s Learning Notes #01: First edition, get started

“In the simplest terms, a first edition is the first commercially distributed version of a book. For the purposes of modern collectible books, first edition is shorthand for the first printing of the first edition of a work.” Welcome to the first edition of my learning notes. The first time (but definitely not the last time) I will share my dose of learning inspiration. I bundle the best reads and share my summary.
