Learners have a rich set of experiences, stories, and worldview that any learning environment must leverage. In addition, learners like to discuss, share, argue, debate, reflect, and construct their own meaning.
This is the new normal. Yes, we don’t get to meet face to face, yet we are connected. Yes, we don’t read non-verbal cues, but we are challenged to heighten our capabilities and develop content that immerses the learner. Yes, we cannot control the learning space, but we can control learner engagement and have a positive impact on their desire to learn.
