Welcome to the belated 2018 edition of Learning Design – related trends.
As we look at these trends, there are clear influences of technology and learner demand, e.g. how learners want to learn. Technology and learner demand do not only strongly influence the forms and ways that learning takes place, but also impact the possibilities and potential of what learning can be. Technology is developing at such a fast pace, organically influencing our working, learning and playing habits. This habit development happens gradually over time, and one day, we realise we have now formed new habits and needs. As learning experience designers, we need to understand these needs and be prepared and equipped to take on the learning design challenges in the new context.
