About Learning Design & Development

Creating Active Learning Environments

Designing learning environments is more to me than aligning needs with objectives with requirements with content with activities with assessment. The one constant in my work as an adult educator is orchestrating the optimal social and physical conditions for a particular learning objective. In other words, provide the right growing medium, nutrients and elements so that learners have all the best possible conditions to grow.
