#GuildChat for 5/03/19: Learning in Context

Our next #GuildChat takes place Friday, May 3rd at 11am PT / 2pm ET. Our topic for this week’s chat is Learning in Context.

We’ve come to understand that our environment plays a significant role in learning. The conditions one will be in when they execute a new skill or behavior can go a long way to trigger recall and influence how well we learn. For training, when we don’t have the actual environment to work with we can try to recreate these in analog or digital forms (VR). Additionally, access to frictionless support in the moment and in context cannot only aid in execution but help strengthen learning over time.


In this week’s #GuildChat we look at the power of learning in context, what’s needed and what makes an immersive experience effective or ineffective options to improve performance.

Prospective questions:

Q1. What sorts of immersive learning experiences have you personally found helpful? Why did they work well for you? #GuildChat
Q2 Does a successful immersive learning experience have to be realistic? Why or why not.
Q3 Are there drawbacks to immersive environments as a learning vehicle? Explain. #GuildChat
Q4 How can you know when a digital immersive experience could work as well for learning (or even better) than a real world experience? #GuildChat
Q5 What can help you decide if an immersive experience should include a coach/teacher/guide or if it should be just the person on their own? #GuildChat
Q6 How does AR improve more analog approaches (i.e. physical SoP’s, job aids)? Are there drawbacks? #GuildChat
Q7 Immersive learning experiences can be useful, but sometimes they can also be overwhelming. What should you consider about your audience to know if it’s the right fit for them? #GuildChat
Q8. Just because it’s immersive, doesn’t magically mean it’s good. What tips do you have to designing immersive experiences that actually impact performance? #GuildChat
