Using these principles, what are some of the most effective design, teaching and learning strategies that have been explored in professional, continuous, and corporate learning, as well as higher education? In what ways do they contribute to or change our understanding of learner centeredness? How can we use existing technologies to design effective teaching and learning experiences? What are the indicators that next-generation technologies will further support these goals? Follow-up article.
