Video Interview by Jon Aleckson

Guy W. Wallace Interview by Jon Aleckson done on 2020-12-11. Jon interviewed me as part of his annual development of the eLearning Hype Curve – this one for 2021.

He did it a little differently this year as he says:

We’re doing our predictions a little different this year. Instead of combing through tweets, we’ve decided to get up close and personal with the trends and get the trends straight from the sources. We interviewed the top pundits in the online learning space and asked their personal take on each trend.

This video interview with me is 21:32 minutes in length.

The eLearning Hype Curve

Jon has recently complied 4 videos from multiple video interviews done at the end of 2020 – and has posted them here:  eLearning Hype Curve: Our Predictions for 2021 – Web Courseworks.

The eLearning Hype Curve is a visualization of what’s “trending” in eLearning, built on the Gartner Hype Cycle theory. This theory holds that technologies emerge with little initial recognition and grow in familiarity until they reach their maximum “hype.” Hype goes through five phases: Innovation Trigger, Peak of Inflated Expectations, Trough of Disillusionment, Slope of Enlightenment, and Plateau of Productivity.

Here are the 10 “Pundits” he interviewed for this take at the future…

Saturday HPT Video Matinee

***** ***** ***** ***** *****

In 2017 I started using Skype to enable me to broaden my reach beyond F2F recordings. Then in 2020 I started using Zoom.

Again, I have posted each of these videos on YouTube. They, unfortunately, are on multiple YouTube sites. Please use this link to the Index – here.

Guy’s HPT Video Series

The HPT Video Series … formerly known as the HPT Practitioner and HPT Legacy Video Series … was started by Guy W. Wallace in 2008 as a means of sharing the diversity of HPT Practitioners, and the diversity of HPT Practices in the workplace and in academia.

The full set of videos – over 125 – may be found and linked to – here.

HPT – Human Performance Technology – is the application of science – the “technology” part – for Performance Improvement.

As the late Don Tosti noted, “All performance is a human endeavor.”

Whether your label for HPT is that, or Performance Improvement, or Human Performance Improvement, it is all about Evidence Based Practices for Performance Improvement at the Individual level, the Team level, the Process level, the Department level, the Functional level, the Enterprise level, and at the level of Society/World.

HPT Practitioners might operate at any of these levels, as this Video Series clearly demonstrates.

Although ISPI – the International Society for Performance Improvement is the professional home of many HPT Practitioners – the concepts, models, methods, tools and techniques are not limited to any one professional affinity group or professional label.

ISPI just happens to be where I learned about HPT – and has been my professional home since 1979.

This Series Has Evolved Since 2008

These videos were first posted on Google Video, then they were moved to Blink, and now they may all be found on YouTube. And my name for them has changed as well…

HPT Practitioner Video Podcasts and HPT Legacy Video Podcasts

– Practitioner Series – short 2-10 minutes, following a script. Intended to show the diversity of HPT and HPT Practitioners. (2008-2018)

– Legacy Series – longer 15-40+ minutes, also scripted, with added stories of other NSPI/ ISPI’ers from the earlier days of the Society or others who were of great influence. Intended to capture the stories of the people who influenced us. (2008-2018)

– HPT Video Series (2019+) – is a continuation of the first two types of videos in this series, but with less focus on capturing NSPI/ISPI members – and expanding out to any and all who use Evidence Based Practices in Performance Improvement regardless of any affiliation with ISPI or not.

My Performance-Oriented Philosophy in ISD

It’s been that way for me since Day 1.

That’s what I was taught in my first job out of college back in August 1979.

Lucky me.

Workflow is just a new name for Process.

Performance Analysis in ISD

One of the Job Aids I provide when training others on my ISD Analysis Methods. This is an older version going back to the late 1980s/early 1990s.

These questions help one produce the Performance AoPs:
