I’ve just posted on LSi.io a comprehensive (65-minute) presentation intended for humanitarian managers and decision makers working in organizations without prior experience in online or distance learning. It includes numerous practical examples and case studies, as well as a description of the best available learning theory and best practice approaches most appropriate for the humanitarian learning context.
Here are the 10 questions addressed:
- It’s not about technology. Really?
- What learning problems do you want to solve?
- What kind of online learning can prepare humanitarians?
- What do you need to know about costs, time, and complexity?
- Where’s the money?
- Do you need scale?
- Can you do more than transmit information with e-learning?
- If experience is the best teacher, how can e-learning help?
- Does e-learning work at all?
- How does all this fit together?
This slide set was originally presented to the Assessment Capacities Project (ACAPS) on 22 September 2014. It is available for LSi.io members via this link. LSi.io is a non-profit talent network for learning leaders from corporate, academic, and humanitarian/development sectors interested in solving wicked problems. (Note: there are some display problems on lsi.io which should be fixed soon. Thank you for your patience.)
