As you may be able to tell I'm new to the L&D space and still learning (aren't we all).
I've recently been challenged on the way I've built a set of online resources for a project I'm working on.
In a nutshell I've grouped resources into two types, those that engage the learner in the subject and those that deliver the learning outcome.
For two subject areas (that one senior stakeholder owns) I've covered these like so:
|Wellbeing||1 x Factsheet (Interesting facts on WBI)||1 x Short guide on Wellbeing (Covers our Wellbeing model)|
|Attendance at work||1 x Quiz (Impact on BT)|
2 x Short guide (Covers reasonable adjustments and keeping in contact
1 x Handbook (Covers practical examples of case mgmt)
I've kept consistency in style and tone for each but have varied documents according to what's appropriate to the subject matter and the learning outcome (i.e. what I think will deliver the LO best)
Now I'm being challenged I'm struggling to articulate why I wouldn't have the same documents for each subject for the learner to give them a consistent experience.
It led me to think about the different learning styles Visual, Auditory and Kinesthetic and how they're catered for in the resources I've used and how as learning designers we should cater for them.
Does every learning outcome need to be covered in every style to create an effective learner experience?
I don't feel like it does, but I can't articulate why!
