Tata Interactive Systems announces white paper on Instructional Design models
Explores learning models and approaches for the connected, networked learners in a complex world.
It is evident that the world of learning and performance—
In the paper, TIS says, “There has been a significant shift in corporate learning design to suit a new multi-generational workforce and address the need to streamline the learning function. With easy access to information via the internet and social media, longer working hours, and remote working, learners want instant gratification of training needs. At the same time, research shows that while 70% of workplace learning happens on the job, 20% is achieved through coaching and mentoring. In the light of these developments, an organization needs to have a collaborative learning framework, where learners generate content and learn from each other. Shorter, focused programs address the need for knowledge that’s relevant and also act as just-in-time performance support, over multiple devices (web, mobile, etc).”
The white paper also focusses on TIS’ learning effectiveness evaluation framework called EAR – Evaluation, Analysis, and Revisit, and serves as a blueprint for the Learning and Development function in the current business environment. Several of TIS’ recommendations include:
Given the effort spent on developing eLearning modules, there is a greater scrutiny on the performance improvement a module facilitates. It’s not enough to learn; the learning needs to translate to performance.
Course design should be about a holistic approach including performance support tools; a much broader spectrum than a pure learning-oriented philosophy.
Since the opportunity cost of an eLearning program is high, there should be a clear connect between the course and performance.
