5 Ways to Bring Contextual Learning to Your Association

About the Author

Jennifer Ritter

From storyboards to module building, Jennifer covers a lot of eLearning ground as an instructional designer, writer, and course creator. She earned her B.A. at Rollins College and draws on her past life as an occasional amateur film maker for insight on the zaniness of the production process. This Jen-of-many-trades is fascinated by the role of storytelling and gameplay in learning and engagement. This may or may not be connected to her urge to write novels and love of videogames and most things “nerdy.” A passion for learning that started in school and led to tutoring has happily landed her in the mystical realm of eLearning.

Great article. I totally agree with the Social Component. Learners need to interact with not only the content, but also self-reflect as well as with one another. This trifecta is really a best practice in distance learning and can be easily implemented on highly-engaging social LMSs.

    Thanks Bree! You’re absolutely right, there’s a lot to be said for reflection. It’s unfortunate that it gets left out of eLearning so often. Especially when having learners keep a learning journal, or other record of their reflection, gives them a personalized job aid they can keep and helps prime ideas and questions for social discussion.”
