Leaders in these organizations do the following: Send the message - Leaders communicate the importance of learning to the organization. Build trust - Employees will invest time and effort in learning if they trust their managers. This learning cannot be left to chance.

Isn’t this how organizational learning cultures progress?

Jay Cross

Jane Hart’s post yesterday on The differences between learning in an e-business and learning in a social business got me thinking about the evolution of learning culture in organizations. It’s all to0 easy to mistakenly think of formal learning as the antiquated, primitive way of doing things, something an organization shucks off as it becomes enlightened and gives its people the autonomy to work on their own.

Formal vs informal learning and what the LMS should do about them

Matrix

That we learn something new all the time is more than an overused cliché; it is actually fact. Every time we buy a new piece of technology, be it a smartphone, a TV or a blender, we need to learn how to use it. Adult learning is very much connected to need and usefulness and as a result it’s paramount for instructional designers to prove the importance of any material they present and allow for learners to go about finding what they think is of educational value at a certain point.

6 Steps To Creating Learning Ecosystems (And Why You Should Bother)

Learnnovators

70:20:10 has shone a spotlight on the limits of formal learning. In contrast, social and experiential learning continue to be veritable goldmines of productivity, placing learners at the centre of their story and demanding a major shift from Learning & Development professionals.

Integrating Social Learning In The Workplace

Learnnovators

I have been writing about social learning and its related concepts – communities of practices , working out loud and skills for the networked world for quite some time now. Social learning has become a buzzword in the workplace learning space, and every other organization is claiming to have “social learning” as a part of the mix. The catch is that “social learning” cannot just be implemented or enforced. How is this change related to social learning?

7 Strategies to Facilitate “Working Out Loud”

We all know that true learning takes place through dialogues.

Improving Informal Learning

Big Dog, Little Dog

Harold notes the 80-20 funding ratio between formal and informal learning and Will Thalheimer questions this funding differential in the comment section. That is, 20% of the learning in organizations is formal, while 80% is informal; however, organizations spend 80% on formal learning and only 20% on informal, thus it looks something like this: Chart 1.

Each approach to evaluation of training has something to contribute to assessing the impact of formal training on employee learning. The real value is in organizational learning from evaluation.
