Organisations today operate in a fascinating world where change is constant, fast and continues to accelerate. It is the combination of evolving developments such as technological advancements, globalisation and new ways of communicating through multimedia technologies that drive us to reorganise how we live, how we work, how we create value, and how we learn. These developments call for a Learning & Development policy and practice that supports professionals to be or become successful in this fascinating changing world. In other words: one of the core goals of Learning & Development is to support sustainable employability. Creating Impact through Future Learning introduces a model for High Impact Learning that Lasts (HILL) that is very much in synch with the demands of an agile organisation. The HILL model is about the learning of young adults, professionals, and experts. It is about the many possibilities to inspire and to support adults in their continuous learning and development process, aiming to create value for today’s and tomorrow’s society. It is about how designers of learning programmes – be it L&D officers or teachers in vocational and higher education preparing adults for professional life – can take a step forward to build the future of learning. A new mindset is needed to create a real impact.

These are challenging times in which to be an educator. The constant flow of innovation offers new opportunities to support learners in an environment ofever-shifting demands. Educators work as they have always done: making the most of the resources at hand, and dealing with constraints, to provide experiences which foster growth. This was John Dewey’s ideal of education 80 years ago and it is still relevant today. This view sees education as a practice that achieves its goals through creative processes involving both craft and design. Craft is visible in the resources that educators produce and in their interactions with learners. Design, though, is tacit, and educators are often unaware of their own design practices. The rapid pace of change is shifting the balance from craft to design, requiring that educators’ design work become visible, shareable and malleable. The participatory patterns workshop is a method for doing this through engaging practitioners in collaborative reflection leading to the production of structured representations of design knowledge. The editors have led many such workshops and this book is a record of that endeavour and its outcomes in the form of practical design narratives, patterns and scenarios that can be used to address challenges in teaching and learning with technology.
