I’m pleased to announce that my colleague Shannon Hart and I will be presenting our paper Distributed Learning: A Flexible Learning and Development Model at the E-Learn 2016 conference. The paper extends the white paper published earlier this year by Obsidian Learning to include a real-world case study of a distributed learning solution we developed for a client. Here’s the abstract:

This paper presents Obsidian’s Distributed Learning model. Grounded in social constructivist theories of learning, the model emphasizes the use of blended learning solutions (instructor-led, online, mobile, ongoing performance support) to foster collaborative learning. There are three primary components in the model: technology, experience, and people. Obsidian’s distributed learning solutions draw from each of these components depending on organizational constraints, instructional requirements, and learner needs. This paper discusses several learning solutions that can be used in distributed learning environments, presents a case study of such an environment developed by Obsidian Learning, and suggests approaches to refining the model through future research and development.

The presentation will be on Tuesday, November 15, at 10:00 AM. Click here for more information on our session: E-Learn – Distributed Learning: A Flexible Learning and Development Model
