Today we are honored to interview one of the learning industry’s legends, Dr. Clark Quinn. Clark is a renowned author and speaker. We are excited to have him speaking at E-Learning Symposium 2015 (his topic The Learning & Development Revolution We Need to Have). Clark is also giving a workshop at ELS 2015 that will help transform your L&D strategy (Revolutionizing Learning and Development–Performance and Innovation Strategy Workshop)
Sanjay Nasta:Clark, we are looking forward to having you at E-Learning Symposium 2015. Could you introduce yourself to our audience.
Clark Quinn: Honored to be there. Brief background on me: I saw the connection between computers and learning as an undergraduate, designed my own major, and it’s been my passion ever since. Got a job designing educational computer games (which has been a recurrent theme in my career), and went back to grad school to go deeper into how to design them. After an academic turn for some years, joined a couple initiatives in new media for learning, came back to the US to lead a project developing an advanced learning system, and for the past almost 15 years have been working as a consultant, always at the bleeding edge (and have the scars to prove it). Along the way I’ve meddled in mobile, adaptive systems, content models, and more.
