Create Your Own eLearning Renaissance
"Renaissance eLearning looks at how popular culture narratives movies, books, television, music, theater, and so on can be emulated to make a more satisfying and effective learning experience that will add to an organizations bottom line in the long run.
Every element of this book from the text to the interviews to the quotes to the graphic design is intended to encourage conceptual blending and to challenge your mind in a way that both stretches beyond the ordinary and realizes new connections between concepts that previously seemed unrelated. Sure, along the way youll pick up some practical stuff about how to use narrative to make eLearning more effective and emotionally compelling, but youll also come away with something much more valuable, although you may not realize it for many years hence. Youll come away with a new voice speaking in your head one that will pop up at unexpected moments, giving you the courage and reassurance to know that a crazy new idea or stupid question may actually be far more important than any serious thought or already established concept."
