How to Create Tomorrow’s Learning Today

Jeanne C. Meister, Chief Learning Officer, Jan 23, 2017
Commentary by Stephen Downes

Jeanne C. Meister describes three new roles that have emerged as corporate e-learning departments adapt to changes in the learning landscape. The roles are:

  • Curators: "learning leaders increasingly focus on facilitating and orchestrating learning aligned to their organization’s growth priorities."
  • Design thinking: "a human-centered, prototype-driven process for innovation that can be applied to product, service and business design."
  • People analyst: "uses machine learning to calculate the relative importance of geography, compensation, employee and manager engagement at the aggregate level."

I don't like any of the titles. They're each different types of research, not simply the function-driven positions that the titles imply. Maybe they should be called scholar, designer and demographer, respectively.
