Active Deep Learner eXperience
Through the “Active Deep Learner” experience and “FIRST” framework, we are introducing a new era of learning and development. A new era of education where not only new activities, and new teaching and training strategies are introduced, but also a movement that started over 3 years ago in other fields and the whole world is heading towards.
On the level of different economical offerings, everybody lately has been talking about customer experience, user experience, patient experience… Etc, hence, the movement we introduced is known as the “learner’s experience”. It was necessary that the field of learning and development start to recall the concept of experience, which is quite simply a method to make training and teaching “learner-centric”, focusing on the whole person, student, and learner.
By whole, we mean focusing on the mental, cognitive, spiritual, emotional, practical and psychological aspects. In other words, designing the experience, applying and facilitating it in its totality and covering all aspects.
It is also important in this new learner experience approach -especially the Active Deep Learner eXperience and FIRST framework- to perceive the learning experience as a complete journey, starting from the preparation period, then the training itself, and the post-training period that could last for as long as three months.
This new philosophy in dealing with training and teaching is concerned with organizing, designing and facilitating the whole process with different strategic tools and ideas.
