Learning Environments by Design deeply explores today’s workplace learning. This book empowers you to customize learning for your workforce and unearths the answers to the questions you’ve been asking: How does learning happen? What is the future of instructional design?

Since the boom of e-learning, informal learning, and social learning, the learning environment landscape has changed dramatically and now offers a wide array of options for supporting knowledge and skill development at work. In this book, learning strategist Catherine Lombardozzi describes practical ways to customize learning experiences by creating a curated approach to skills development—one that features informal and social learning, developmental activities, experiential learning, as well as formal training.

If you’re in the learning field or want to be, you must know how to do more than drop content into screens. In this book, Lombardozzi describes the need for real learning environments, which help people and organizations support growth processes and exchange of knowledge. Content alone will never do this.
