What’s the difference between a learning path and a learning journey? We’ve found sometimes that these terms are used interchangeably, but when we hear our clients talking about them, it’s always worth delving deeper.
Here’s what we’re thinking… but feel free to let us know your thoughts! We love a good learning argument.
A path can be defined at the outset, and has a clear start and finish.
Journey is as much about how you get there. Journey might have options and choices. Everyone’s journey is different, but all going in the same direction (e.g. a required behaviour change).
At the end of a journey you can look back and draw a learning path, a path that might not have been obvious at the start.
Next month, we’ll revisit these ideas and perhaps revisit our infographic!
