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.

The last few weeks a lot of things related to Japan popped up in different places. What is Ikigai? What does ‘get to your Gemba’ mean. How can you use PechaKucha? And what does it have to do with learning? Find out in this edition of the ‘Japanese’ learning notes. – Ganbatte! Ger-San

Ger’s Learning Notes #07 – Myth busting

Some research suggests that a goldfish has a longer attention span than you do. How do you think you stack up? Find out more in this edition of the learning notes where we’ll be myth busting.

Ger’s Learning Notes #06 – Choosing ‘and’ over ‘or’

Choosing ‘and’ over ‘or’ – When discussions focus on formal or informal learning, on online or classroom training, on performance support or learning, it always triggers me to redefine the discussion and explore ‘and’. How can we find the most effective solution of formal and informal learning, of online and classroom training of performance support and learning? I hope these notes will support your professional ‘and’ approach (and inspire you, and help you get results, and….)

Ger’s Learning Notes #05 – Tips

Best tip, golden tip, ultimate best tip, number one tip, and expert tips. We all like tips. This week a new spring arrived (pun intended) and to celebrate that I thought the best way to do so is to focus my notes on tips. Apply one tip per day and the profit will stay!

Ger’s Learning Notes #04 – Deep and fundamental

Deep and fundamental… I sometimes miss that these days. I feel challenged by the fast paced world to take the ‘quick & dirty’ approach. Do you? Now I can hear you think: hey Ger, how about ‘deep and fundamental’ when it’s about your learning notes? Good question! I’m ready for that, here are 4 new ‘deep notes’.
