Let The Learner Lead: How Learning Technology Can Support Skills, Competencies, & Constructivism

How do you encourage a person to learn without telling them what to believe? How do you assess skills without asking learners to memorize facts? It’s all in the learning environment.

Many learning professionals incorporate constructivism into their instructional design approach. Constructivism seeks to actively involve the learner in a process of meaning and knowledge construction. Learners are exposed to an environment and framework that allows them to derive meaning as opposed to passively receiving information.

Katrina Marie Baker, Senior Learning Evangelist at Adobe, will provide food for thought on the following points:

  • Definitions of constructivism and some related terms, such as project-based, experiential, and inquiry-based learning
  • Benefits and limitations of constructivism
  • How constructivism can be applied to a training course or program
  • How to create an effective learning environment using technology
  • Suggested reading and additional resources

Group discussion will take place throughout the session.
