After reading the whole launch presentation, I feel something is missing.

Turning information into Knowledge is learning. Learning design is the make the process of turning information into knowlege better. So learner will gain knowledge more efficient.  But knowledg is not enough. It is said that what we learned is just knowlege, what we can apply to real life is competency/capability.  For adult learner, I think what is most important is to apply knowledge to real life situation and get job done, get problem solved. When I was deliver training courses to corporate workplace in China , the hardest qestion I often got is "so what?" 


Turn information into knowledge  Learning

   Teaching  Shaping learning

Education   Learning design 

  Training    Apply learning

If you can't facilitate the process of how to apply learning to practice, and make a difference to learner's performance then it would be very risky for you to stand in front of your trainees and try to shape learning for them, you might receive apples or tomatos or empty bottles from them.
