Disseminating my Research

In my role as a learning designer at my organization, I design e-learning for external clients and their learners. My intention is to utilize the technology acceptance model (TAM) as the framework for my research. I believe the TAM framework is an excellent way for me to explore the areas of perceived usefulness (how a learner perceives the value of learning as it relates to their ability to perform in their job) and perceived ease of use (how a learner judges how easy an application or system is to use) (Davis, 1989).

Although I haven’t decided on a research question or sub questions just yet, my overall direction will be to research how e-learning can be designed to increase the level of engagement of learners. In conjunction with that I would like to include how this in turn will be of value to our clients from an employer perspective.

One of the ways I will be disseminating my research is to share it with my employer and peers as I am hoping it will prove to be a valuable resource in the work that we do. Another avenue I would like to pursue is the possibility of professional publications such as, trainingmag.com, td.org, and elearningjournal.com. However, this is very much a work in progress that I’m looking forward to refining during LRNT622 as my own thinking evolves and is enhanced by feedback/comments from our instructor, as well as my classmates.
