I can’t speak for everyone, but I will say, there are plenty of us, on both sides of the aisle, who went to bed, thinking one way, and awakened thinking either the same way or not. We all are going to have to be patient, which in this day and age, is something of a lost art.
Patience has never been my strong suit. I never saw the old way of training with manuals, and F2F ILT as the way it had to be. I saw as early as 1998, that the future of learning would be e-learning (online learning). And as the years would pass, keep asking myself why can’t everyone else see this? Why are people still using paper as a learning tool? Why are people still big fans of face to face ILT, when the data already out there was showing that e-learning was equal to if not better for comprehension, retention and synthesis to classroom/seminar training/learning?
I spent a few months learning instructional design, when I jumped to the corporate market.
