Learning Development Cycle

In the article Learning Development Cycle: Bridging Learning Design and Modern Knowledge Needs, George Siemens describes the Learning Development Cycle (LDC) model. He states that this learning design model can bridge the gap between design approaches and knowledge needs of academic and corporate learners.


“Instructional design (ID) serves only a small part of the entire learning experience. The pace of information development exceeds courses as the primary delivery mechanism of learning, challenging established ID. Alternatives to courses, like learning networks and ecologies, are developing as an informal learning approach. Designers and organizations receive substantial benefits to acknowledging informal learning, and initiating a focused design approach. Effective learning design must recognize different domains of learning.”
