I’m not sure why, when or where it happened, but I seem to have developed a tendency to think ‘and’ instead of ‘or’. When professionals have a preference for formal or informal learning it triggers me to shift and to explore .
I’m pretty sure my ‘and’ preference comes from the fact that I really like desserts. That’s right, the sweet delight at the end of a meal. I’ve always had a hard time choosing a desserts from the menu – it has always been an ‘or’ choice until the ‘Grand Dessert’ was invented. Combining chocolate mousse with cheesecake and ice cream. It’s the perfect ‘and’ choice.
In these learning notes you’ll find some interesting ‘and’ approaches. How about the Yin and Yang of formal and informal learning? Or the idea that the role of Instructional Designer is dead and alive?
Talking about desserts:
- Do you know who invented the Grand Dessert? I don’t, so please reply if you have any idea.
- The theme of this edition of the learning notes might suggest this is the last dish in our learning notes menu – don’t worry, there are many more to come.
Do you want to suggest a theme for the next learning notes? Let me know.
