Learning Forward: An Introduction

Welcome to Learning Forward, a new blog series all about the when, the where, the why and the how of eLearning, as it relates to you, a CHA Learning student.

My name is Shneay Kazan, and I’m a Learning Specialist with CHA Learning. As an experienced instructional designer, I’m passionate about helping adult learners reach their goals in professional development. Simply put, I love to learn, and I love to help others learn too!

What’s this series about?

This series will explore how we can harness the power of technology to enhance the learning experience. From paying bills to connecting with friends and family, technology has quickly become ingrained in our everyday lives. And it’s an increasingly critical part of healthcare with many “digital health” topics, advances and issues being discussed at all levels of the system. With that in mind, it only makes sense that how we learn must also change with the growth of new technologies. This growth in the use of technology comes with both challenges and opportunities. It’s my job to help guide you through the various approaches in eLearning and develop the skills you need to succeed.

What will you learn?

At the beginning of each month, you can look forward to a different topic relating to learning, technology, and how we, as adults, relate to the changing world around us. I’ll also be offering some tips and advice for those venturing into eLearning for the first time with CHA Learning.

Here’s a preview of the topics I’ll be discussing in the upcoming months:

  • Lifelong Learning: Beyond the Classroom
  • What is eLearning?
  • The Benefits of eLearning
  • The Challenges of eLearning
  • What’s Next in eLearning
  • How We Learn
  • What Does an Adult Learner Look Like?
  • The Myth of Learning Styles

What comes next?

Next month’s topic is Lifelong Learning: Beyond the Classroom. I’ll be talking about the concept of lifelong learning and its benefits for the adult learner.
