Well known in the USA as well as in the UK for his views on e-learning, especially instructional design (ID), Neil Lasher’s article in the January 2007 edition of CLO magazine argues that it is time to change our reliance on Blooms’ Taxonomy – now over 50 years old – and Gagne, whose views on ID are now over 40 years old.

According to Lasher: ‘When used in the classroom, there is no better model. Many e-learning authors, however, have interpreted no fewer than three of Gagne’s nine events of instruction by relying almost exclusively on questions and answers.

‘In doing this, you can create a culture of learning by inquisition. New approaches have been sought to enable e-learners to reach a far higher level of knowledge understanding rather than simple knowledge transfer.’

In Lasher’s view: ‘Often, interventions attempt to “fix” or change an existing situation or process. Instead of the fix, start each learning design with a clean piece of paper — look at the purpose of the learning intervention as an outsider and try to identify the real reasons for the learning and what purpose it could really fulfil.

‘Using this process, consider how powerful enterprise learning could be if we could identify the potential customer we lost. If we could understand what went wrong to make that person go elsewhere, we could write a learning intervention for the business that would bring measurable change directly to the bottom line.

‘With any luck, using techniques such as these will allow our “new” style of learning to be around for the same length of time as those of Bloom and Gagne.’

Lasher continues to run a series of courses on instructional design in the USA, the UK and, from early 2007, in Russia, working in partnership with Business Training Russia (BTR), one of Russia’s leading short-term business education and training companies. Among the Moscow-based company’s internationally known clients are Audi, Bacardi, Sony, Volvo, L’Oreal, IKEA and Diageo.
