  • New tools, new devices, new bandwidth... how true even today. There is still a big gap between what is needed in the digital economy vs the skills that exist amongst the workforce! Thanks for the great presentation!

  • Hi Clive shepherd, Its really a good opening and closing of your presentation.The usage of images is good .There will always be gaps and they need to be identified and close them. Implementation of strategic skills, curriculum design, content creation, facilitation is very important and it takes a very longtime to enhance these skills.The gap should be reduced by bridging forward to new era.

  • Great presentation Clive... There will always be gaps, but being aware of them and adapting accordingly makes them easier to close. More of my thoughts are in my blog post at http://tinyurl.com/lu6f8l. Thanks...

The e-learning skills gap Presentation Transcript

  • 1. The e-learning skills gap
    Clive Shepherd
    www.skillsjourney.com
  • 2. Surprising as it may seem, most educational and training methods are relatively timeless
    coaching
    observation
    exploration
    discovery
    case studies
    demonstration
    consultation
    simulation
    briefings
    instruction
    discussion
    performance support
    assessment
    networking
    feedback
    games
    reading
    lectures
    collaboration
    questioning
    work experience
    visits
    reflection
    projects
    research
    role-play
    sharing
    practice
  • 3. Although at different times in history, we have tended to favour some methods over others
    coaching
    observation
    exploration
    discovery
    case studies
    demonstration
    consultation
    instruction
    simulation
    briefings
    discussion

    networking
    performance support
    feedback
    games
    reading
    lectures
    collaboration
    questioning
    work experience
    visits
    reflection
    projects
    research
    role-play
    sharing
    practice
  • 4. Right now, there are some good reasons to rethink the methods we use
  • 5. There are new theories like connectivism …
    CONNECTIVISM
  • 6. … which emphasises the importance of networks and networking to learning
    “Instead of the individual having to evaluate and process every bit of information, she/he creates a personal network of trusted nodes: people and content, enhanced by technology. The act of knowledge is offloaded onto the network itself.”
    George Siemens, Knowing Knowledge
  • 7. We’ve also seen major advances in what we know about the brain and how people learn
    NEUROSCIENCE
  • 8. We now have no excuses for overloading learners with indigestible information
    NEUROSCIENCE
  • 9. We also have to respond to the expectations of a new generation of learners
    Gen Y: digital, social and always-on
  • 10. There are two ways of looking at Generation Y
    “Gen Y are tolerant, optimistic, collaborative,open-minded and driven.”
    suite101.com
    “Gen Y are the 'diva' generation: high-maintenance, out for themselves, lacking in loyalty, thinking only of the short termand their own place in it..”
    Association of Graduate Recruiters
  • 11. Although it could be that Gen Y are just more vocal in demanding what we’ve always wanted
    How Gen Y want learning to be:
    Interactive
    Student-centred
    Authentic
    Collaborative
    On-demand
    don’t we all?
    Barking Robot, 2006
  • 12. New thinking, new science and new expectations demand a shift in emphasis
    coaching
    observation
    exploration
    discovery
    case studies
    demonstration
    consultation
    simulation
    briefings
    instruction
    discussion

  • 13. At the same time, we face great pressures
  • 14. We’re under increasing pressure to deliver learning solutions more quickly
    “72% of all training challenges are time-critical.”
    Bersin & Associates (2005)
    TIME PRESSURES
  • 15. Sometimes it seems we are having to run ever faster just to stay in the same place
  • 16. We need to be able to respond differently to different situations
    A PYRAMID OF LEARNING INTERVENTIONS
    TOP DOWN
    BOTTOM-UP
    Source: Nick Shackleton-Jones, BBC
  • 17. Oh, and did I forget the financial pressures?
    COST PRESSURES
  • 18. Times are certainly tougher in learning and development as budgets are slashed
    “Be aware that themagnitude of the financialmeltdown is almost beyondcomprehension. I can foreseetraining departments being eliminated almost entirely.”
    Jay Cross (2008)
  • 19. The need to think green may have taken a back seat right now, but we know we should be reducing travel where we can
    ENVIRONMENTAL PRESSURES
  • 20. We can’t meet all these pressures just by changing methods
    We choose methods to maximise the effectiveness of learning
    We choose media to maximise the efficiency of learning
    And the new pressures (time, environmental, budgetary) require, above all, greater efficiencies
  • 21. Luckily, learning media are evolving rapidly. And new learning media enable change
    books
    tapes
    workbooks
    DVDs
    CDs
    web pages
    downloadable documents
    podcasts/vodcasts
    streaming media
    email
    instant messaging
    chat rooms
    forums
    blogs
    web conferencing
    wikis
    social networks
    SMS
    teleconferencing
    simulators
    telephone
  • 22. Technology is providing some major new opportunities
  • 23. The latest web tools allow us to collaborate as never before, not just at home but at work
    WEB 2.0 TOOLS
  • 24. New, easy-to-use tools make it easier than ever to create self-paced learning content
    RAPID DEVELOPMENT TOOLS
  • 25. And the latest mobile devices provide connectivity for those who aren’t always sitting behind a desk
    MOBILE DEVICES
  • 26. We’re getting near to the point when anyone who wants their own computer can afford one
    EVER MORE ACCESSIBLE COMPUTING
  • 27. It no longer costs the earth to put together your own audio and video materials
    LOW-PRICE, HIGH QUALITY MEDIA CREATION
  • 28. And we now have the bandwidth – even on mobile devices – to put that audio and video out there
    3G
    WIDESPREAD BROADBAND AVAILABILITY
  • 29. Thirty years ago, a new trainer would have been comfortable with all available media
  • 30. But as new media have proliferated, many have backed away and left it all to the specialists
  • 31. But as new media begin to affect all aspects of the work we do, it’s probably time to play catch up
    “When the rate of change outside exceeds the rate of change inside, the end is in sight.”
    Jack Welch
  • 32. So what’s the gap? Here’s what one recent UK survey discovered …
    Barriers to the successful implementation of new learning technologies:
    A lack of knowledge about its potential use and implementation (>65%)
    A lack of skills to implement and manage e-learning (>50%)
    Towards Maturity benchmarking survey 2009
  • 33. We need the skills to implement e-learning successfully as part of our overall l&d strategy
    STRATEGIC SKILLS
  • 34. We need to be able to integrate new media into next generation blended learning solutions
    STRATEGIC SKILLS
    CURRICULUM DESIGN
  • 35. We need to be able to create e-content that is relevant, engagingand effective
    CONTENT CREATION
    STRATEGIC SKILLS
    CURRICULUM DESIGN
  • 36. And we need to adapt our facilitation skills to support online collaboration as well as face-to-face
    CONTENT CREATION
    STRATEGIC SKILLS
    FACILITATION
    CURRICULUM DESIGN
  • 37. The new tool at skillsjourney.com will allow organisations and individuals to assess their e-learning skills gap
    htttp://skillsjourney.com (beta)
  • 38. It also points the way to available resources that will help you to bridge any gaps
    Qualifications
    Short courses
    Networks
    Resources
  • 39. And when we’ve closed those gaps, we can look forward to a new era of l&d with confidence
