Evaluating Informal Learning

The Performance Improvement Blog

Informal learning in organizations is finally being recognized as a key aspect of employee development and performance improvement. But how do you evaluate something that is as unpredictable and serendipitous as informal learning?

Managers could follow these results for the purpose of assessing impact of team learning.

Informal Learning and the Pivot Point

The Performance Improvement Blog

As David Grebow explained in his post about The Learning Curve and The Pivot Point , unless formal training (courses, workshops, seminars, webinars, etc.) is followed by informal learning interventions, at the Pivot Point in the learning curve the knowledge and skills acquired in those formal experiences will not be applied and will be forgotten. This chart identifies only some of the many ways in which learning can be supported over time.

The role of instructional designer in social/informal learning

Spark Your Interest

One of the quandaries that instructional designers have been struggling with, is their role (if any) in informal or social learning. First of all, what exactly is informal and social learning? Informal – no set objective in terms of learning outcomes and is never intentional from the learner’s standpoint. Often, it is referred to as learning by experience or just as experience. The audience gets the right mode of training/learning.

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 Training Vs. Informal Learning: Which Makes More Sense?

Mindflash

There’s been a great deal of discussion over the last few years related to informal learning. Today, just about any training magazine, website, or conference probably devotes significant time to talking about informal learning. My biggest gripe with informal learning is that, like many things, it’s often viewed in terms of absolutes. We see this all too often in the learning and performance field.

Demystifying Working Out Loud

Given this VUCA world, it is imperative for and incumbent on all of us to remain learning agile and relevant.

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.

Becoming a Social Business – Beyond Culture Change

The usual culprits are the hapless organizational culture closely followed by hierarchy and leadership lethargy. Underlying this military and manufacturing discourse is an insidious and difficult to pin down aspect – the scarcity mindset – be it of money, skills, information, time, talent, and so on.
