Learning Professionals – Do you need to tweak your pipes?
SEPTEMBER 21, 2011

SEPTEMBER 22, 2011
To whet your appetite I’d like to mention the great work of Peter Pipe whose very broadest definition of Performance aids is, “Whatever help it takes to get the job done right by the people who have to do the job”.

(I looked because I’m sure I’ve talked about this before, but apparently not a full post, so here we go.). If we want our learning to stick, it needs to be spaced out over time. But what sorts of things will accomplish this? I like to think of three types, all different forms of reactivating learning. Reactivating learning is important.

Robert Mager and Peter Pipe, in the last century, and Marc Rosenberg and Steve Foreman, in this one, urge us to look at each request (better performance appraisals, safer equipment operation, introduction of a new software package) in order to c ustomize systems based on data.
