How to Succeed in the DLL

If someone needs directions, don’t give them a globe. It’ll merely waste their time. But if someone needs to understand the way things are, don’t give them a map. They don’t need directions; they need to see the big picture Seth Godin para. 1

In order to do well in the DLL, you need to see the bigger picture of how this program works. More specifically you need to see the bigger picture of how we have created a significant learning environment in which we give you choice ownership and voice through authentic learning opportunities.

The following pages and videos have been designed to help understand why and how we use CSLE+COVA in the DLL and what that will mean to your learning experience. We recommend that you use the following pages in sequence but as you will see in the DLL program we leave that choice up to you:

CSLE+COVA
The short page and video (2 min) provide the overview and context for CSLE+COVA.

Why CSLE+COVA
Since people don’t buy into what you do but buy why you do the CSLE+COVA Why, How and What page and the short 4 Keys to CSLE+COVA (5 min) provide the foundational starting point about how to use technology to enhance learning.

What to expect from the DLL
Constructivist hold that people learn by making meaningful connections between what they already know and what is new. Therefore, it is our hope that the What to Expect video (6 min) which compares and contrasts the CSLE+COVA to the traditional information transfer model will help you to understand how to deal with the differences you will experience in the DLL program

What you get from the DLL
Since the DLL program uses authentic learning opportunities that are core to the constructivist CSLE+COVA approach this page points to all the authentic, plans, strategies and related resources that you will create in the program.

DLL Program Map
The DLL Program Map page and related video (8 min) will give you a detailed explanation, and a visual representation of how the DLL program works and how each of the courses works together to help you build, implement and measure an innovation plan that will help you succeed as a digital leader.

CSLE
Once you have gone through the above pages and videos going back to the CSLE page will help to reinforce how important it is to look at creating significant learning environments.

COVA
Once you have gone through the above pages and videos going back to the COVA page will help to reinforce how important it is to have choice, ownership, and voice through authentic learning opportunities.

Research
We encourage everyone to always look at the research and supporting ideas and theories behind what you read. The CSLE+COVA and the DLL program are based on well established constructivist theories and research so we encourage you to explore these foundational ideas further.
