Your Training Edge

So why does so much of corporate training still involve an instructor flipping through a seemingly endless PowerPoint slide deck? It is perhaps no coincidence that the MOOC explosion has occurred side-by-side with a rise in popularity of the “flipped classroom” model, in which the traditional method of classroom delivery is flipped on its head.

The differences between learning in an e-business and learning in a social business

Jane Hart

In my recent webinar I shared a slide that showed the 5 stages of workplace learning.
