The path ahead

Together we learn. No one is ever right or wrong as long as we evolve our understanding together.

Workings

Reports from the learning design trenches. Where much of the Field Guide and Opinions come from. As a reflective practitioner, these posts will:

  • Describe the situation?
  • How did it go?
  • How did I feel about it?
  • What would I do differently?

Opinions

They are just that. Disagree with me? Strike a chord with you? Excellent! It’s in the shared discussion that common understanding is created and a call to action be made.

The Field Guide

My collection of things about learning that work and resonate with me based on experience. However, for it to be included in the field guide, it must be tied to research. Your mileage may vary.

Possible Field Guide Topics

There is a long path ahead. There are many turns. We need a list of destinations and a map for our learning journey.
