Learner Profiling

Deep Think

When we look at the three pillars of learning design – learner, pedagogy (I will include learning theory, content and instructional design in this) and technology – we have been talking a lot about pedagogy and technology. I would like to start a discussion around the learner and how we can synthesize what we know about the other two pillars into this discussion.

The focus points of the discussion are:

  1. What is the value in trying to build a model of a learner?
  2. What would be components of the model?
  3. How would these components be combined with pedagogy and technology to create more effective (personalized/adaptive) learning?

I would love to hear views around these. Here are some references that could serve as a starting point.
