Much thanks to Karl for guest blogging in January. He not only
offered some insightful posts about how "gamification" is affecting
the world of learning, he kept us abreast of happenings at ASTD
In February, the LC Blog invites Connie Malamed to take the helm.
Connie is a frequent contributor to Learning Circuits, and
has spoken at several ASTD events about the fields of online
learning, information design, and visual communication. She is also
the author of Visual Language for Designers, which presents visual
design principles that are based on cognitive science. In other
words, it explains how to design for the human mind - something
that's very important in e-learning.
However, Connie is probably most well-known for The eLearning Coach
which is her own blog where she shares actionable strategies,
practical content, product reviews, and resources to help
practitioners design, develop, and understand online learning.
Indeed, with degrees in Instructional Design and Art Education, she
energetically pursues ways to improve instructional and information
Following Karl's lead, Connie promises to pass along to readers
what she learned at ASTD TechKnowledge, as well as lend her
thoughts on visual design and discuss current trends in our field.
