As L&D professionals, we are fond of learning and love designing learning solutions. Usually, L&D professionals don’t like the analysis part as much as the creation and delivery of learning. But, it all starts with a good analysis, understanding the situation, the context and the learners; understanding what’s needed to increase performance. A great analysis will give you lots of clues on how to use the right blend of learning components, whether that’s online or offline. Before you can start to design, you first need a good analysis.
Also, learning design expertise is important— which approach will get the best results for which kinds of learning or situations? Lastly, you need to understand how technology can support learning. You need to know the functionalities and how the technology can best host or support (parts of) your learning program. Technology can vary from a small and specific app to a complete blended learning platform. So, choose the right blend and the right technology for the right situation.
