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

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

Ger’s Learning Notes #28 – Compliance Training

I recently discovered a very exciting topic related to learning: compliance training! You might think I’m kidding but, in fact, it is the truth.

Start with who?

Are you a fan of Simon Sinek and ‘Start with Why’? And his ‘Golden Circle’? Yes? Me too! But not always. Only when it comes to themes about marketing or leadership, not those that deal with learning design. Then, I think, you can start begin with ‘who’. Turn the spotlight on the professional for whom you are designing a learning journey.

Ger’s Learning notes #26 – Learning Techniques

Practice is hard; it’s about trying to achieve something you haven’t mastered yet. That’s a frustrating process and for a bit of relief, we tend to stop practicing for a few minutes of play: applying something we have already mastered because that is satisfying. Don’t. Stick with your practice until you reach your goal. That’s what is called ‘deliberate practice’. It’s one of the learning techniques of this edition of the learning notes.

Design for how people learn by Julie Dirksen

Julie Dirksen is a true expert when it comes to learning design and the author of a really good book, Design for how people learn. And I was lucky enough to catch her on her European trip to ask her a few questions about why learning professionals should take a look at her book.
