For many years, JIBC has been guided by an applied learning model that has resulted in a healthy use of simulations, exercises and role-plays in the design and delivery of its programs. However, when learning technology is thrown into mix it presents certain challenges to maintaining an experiential learning environment since many mainstream technologies (e.g., LMSes) are better suited to delivering content-driven courses characteristic of more traditional university programs. At JIBC, this challenge is compounded by a highly focused institutional mandate, coupled with a less traditional student body whose learning experiences transverse institutional, workplace and simulated places. This presentation will discuss findings from a JIBC student use of technology study that looked at formal and informal uses of technology, and how this informs (and doesn’t inform) learning technologies and innovation at our institution.
