We know more about how the brain works than ever before in history. We have studied more educational science and academic research surrounding learning and success than any other generation who has come before. And at the same time, our culture is constantly honing the most effective practices for technology-enabled communication possible. These three concepts are the heart of Education 3.0. The past year has had an unprecedented impact on teaching and learning, with digitally supported learning both in a spotlight but also highly criticized. Yet many of the known practices that lead to success (learning, persistence, articulation, completion, etc) have been largely absent from the learning experiences created by practitioners. In other words, what we know about the brain, about learning, and about deploying digital tools / platforms at scale have been widely ignored as eLearning has been leaned on so very heavily.


This book, "Education 3.0 and eLearning Across Modalities" seeks to showcase the most effective practices, top notch research, and rich but applicable illustrations of learning, regardless of modality. By honoring both the art and the science of teaching with the ultimate outcome of learning (beyond completion or persistence), this book will provide readers with ideas, measures, strategies, and potentially even a blueprint for "best" learning in most contexts. Chapters should leverage research saturation, including current, effective, relevant practices augmented by illustrative showcases or case studies to reinforce pragmatic aspects of implementation, operationalization, and learning architecture. This book also seeks to create a healthy level of disequilibrium, potentially extrapolating theoretical models or potential experimentation so as to further conversation and research.

Target Audience

This book should be considered for the following stakeholders: - As a textbook for upper level / graduate work in or around Instructional Design, Education Leadership, or the emerging degrees specific to eLearning / Digital Instruction / etc. - As a guidebook for institutions seeking to leverage effective practices in creating, implementing, or sustaining eLearning. This book would be a strong support mechanism for Strategic Planning, building eLearning initiatives, or other digital learning experiences the institution wishes to support. - As a book for consultation specific to some of the best practices in eLearning known today. This book should be considered an excellent reference for practitioners and would be a valuable addition to a conference bag or digital summit.

Recommended Topics

The following concepts are being considered for the book although others will certainly apply: - Neuroscience and Learning - Learning Research Effective Practices: from Desirable Difficulties to the Arc Plot - Education Technology Models and Frameworks (SAMR, RATL, etc) - Design Principles - Outcomes Driven Design - The Steam of Responsive Teaching and Learning - Practical Methods by Case - Assessment For Learning - Professional Development for eLearning Practitioners - The Infrastructure of eLearning - Working With 3rd Party Providers Toward Student Success - Readiness, Remediation, and Risk - Data Driven Decisions for Student Success
