Design 2.0

Emerging Web 2.0 tools like blogs, wikis, and social networking software have the potential to enhance performance and the overall business enterprise. However, few organizations integrate these tools in the instructional design process.Sue Czeropski (Training Manager @ Valin Corp) and I recently facilitated a discussion on utilizing Web 2.0 tools in the ISD.

We as instructional designers have some fundamental questions to answer regarding the utilization of Web 2.0 tools in the design, development and implementation of training and performance interventions. These include:

  • How are Web 2.0 tools changing the landscape of learning and performance?
  • Are traditional instructional design models appropriate for the fast-paced, information-rich, demands of the 21st Century workplace?
  • How do we leverage Web 2.0 tools, experts, and a instructional design model to rapidly produce rich learning solutions that enhance performance and knowledge management?

What’s needed is a Web 2.0 tool that can enhance collaboration and communication during the instructional design process, so that the design team can capture content and expertise across a variety of organizational and geographically dispersed knowledge centers. What are you thoughts?

Web Two O- Part III

Well, 32 people attended my workshop on the instructional applications of Web 2.0. Ironically, around 7:30 PM last night I noticed this student chatting on Meebo, listening to her iPod, and preparing for the coming semester. She is the perfect example of the “Millennial” learner I profiled in the presentation. What a perfect end to Flex Day!

Web Two Point O?

Well, I’m back in my office– Starbucks! Planning my presentation for Mission College Flex Day (faculty development day). I wonder how they heck I’m going to explain the concept of Web 2.0 to my colleagues in terms they can relate to?… Suggestions?

Web 2.0 and Instructional Design

Recently, one of my students (Jorge Oceja) made an interesting comment about Web 2.0 and the instructional design community. In his opinon, most graduate level instructional design programs, and the experts in the field in general, are neglecting to recognize the importance of Web 2.0 in the design, development, and delivery of instruction. He also argues that most graduate level ISD programs are irrelevant because they are not integrating Web 2.0 into the curriculum or researching how it fits in the scheme of current ISD models.

Check out Jay Cross’ YouTube video on Informal Learning and Web 2.0.

What do you think? Do current ISD models articulate instruction for a Web 2.0 world?
