Four skills necessary in eLearning for employable students

Postby gregorymboelter » Thu, 25 Aug 2016 05:28:01 -0500

Why do we offer online learning, why do we regularly call our students and why do we advise you to answer questions at a job interview with real life examples?

As educators we often have a series of objectives to achieve: engage students, impart knowledge, develop their skills, and at the very end of the process, make them purpose-ready. To prioritise, manage and balance each objective requires careful consideration, and we must not favour one over another. Technological developments in education both challenge and enable the way in which training is delivered. We are constantly innovating the learning environment in order to remain relevant and absorbing. However, in this process, are we endangering our final objective of creating graduates who are fit for purpose?

Following recent eLearning trends, we are witnessing a shift towards education that is accessible, personalised and attractive. Fantastic! This is a welcome revolution, allowing a wider and more encompassing reach – education for all. But as education departs the classroom and the lecture theatre, and arrives at laptops, tablets and smartphones, certain skills and qualities are disappearing – and those qualities are highly valued by potential employers. Initiative, self-awareness, collaborative skills and leadership traits are often the sacrifice of eLearning. The best eLearning practitioners and developers will need to establish ways of embedding these qualities back into the accessible, personalised and attractive curriculum being delivered.
