Learning & Development: How To Do It Right (2020 Update)

Docebo

With high stakes riding on the success of our training and development strategies, it’s time for us to unpack the importance of polished learning programs and, even more crucially, better understand how our training programs have failed in the past. What is Learning and Development?

Gadgets, Games and Gizmos: Informal Learning at Nick.com

Kapp Notes

Like… how can you prevent garbage from being posted on blogs, do companies need to hire professional announcers for their podcasts how will organizations incorporate the next “hot” technology into their learning toolkit. You can hear the critics: “Why don't the learning technology folks get serious about learning and create ‘good content that the audience might be interested in reading and referencing' instead of hyping all this new fangled Web 2.0

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. Central to this cultural shift is the understanding that learning happens by learners, not to them. That’s where learning ecosystems come in.

eLearning Modules will Die… and 70:20:10 will hold the Smoking Gun

Learnnovators

When talking about technology and learning it’s hard not to think about elearning modules. They’ve been the bread and butter of digital learning solutions for decades and the industry behind them has helped many, including myself, feed our families. Many in L&D have embraced the fact that formal learning doesn’t do the heavy lifting in learning, but let’s not swing the pendulum too far because formal learning still has an important role to play.

Life Sciences Learning Trends in Focus

PDG

As budgets for learning and development get battered from all sides, the savviest Life Sciences learning organizations have realized a simple truth: it isn’t about doing more with less, it’s about fundamentally rethinking the way learning and development gets done. Titled Learning in Changing Times: 5 Trends in Life Sciences Learning , the article focuses on how changes in the Life Sciences industry are changing the requirements of an effective learning function.

The Learning Experience Architect: A New Role for Modern Learning

InSync Training

How are you handling all of the changes in the new Learning and Development landscape? Thanks to the introduction of new methodologies and technologies to our toolkits, the time for specialization has passed. Today, everything in learning is blended. Formal learning now includes in-person events that have supportive eLearning modules and virtual classroom training sessions. And don’t forget: these blended learning experiences also include informal learning.

Giving up control

Jay Cross's Informal Learning

In an article titled Taking the Social Media Plunge: Learning to Let Go , Andy McAfee explores the reluctance of traditional organizations to embrace social media (and informal learning). They’re worried, in short, about what will happen when they actually do empower their employees with the digital toolkit of Enterprise 2.0. Unjustified distrust of workers denies corporations the benefits of networked learning and performance support.

The benefits of applying the 70:20:10 learning framework

Docebo

Considering a new informal learning approach? Docebo recently co-sponsored a report authored by Charles Jennings and Towards Maturity that addresses a number of questions, myths and outright falsities that come up during many conversations about the 70:20:10 learning framework , and particularly how it applies to online and blended learning at work. What are the benefits of applying new models of learning? New report outlines the benefits of applying 70:20:10.

Myth #6: learning and development should try to achieve a ratio of 70:20:10

Docebo

Learning and development – Should you strive for a “perfect” ratio of 70:20:10? Should Learning and Development professionals strive for a firm 70:20:10 ratio , or are the numbers more flexible? Each performance problem to be solved will have its own optimum blend of experiential (‘70’), social (‘20’) and structured (‘10’) learning. How 70:20:10 boosts formal training initiatives while supporting social and informal learning.

Upskilling – where employees learn new skills to progress within their current role or career path – provides a new set of competencies that complement an existing skillset. Reinforce a culture of learning. At any time, you can view strengths and gaps to inform your next steps.

Implementing 70/20/10 Learning Model In Workforce Training

Apart from that, the 70/20/10 learning model can also help organizations to achieve a massive boost in their employees’ productivity level. While all that contributes to the effectiveness of the learning model, I’ll admit that’s not all.

What Is Social Learning Anyway?

CLO Magazine

Social learning has evolved from buzzword to business imperative, but there is no industry-wide definition; it means different things to different companies. Learning management system, return on investment, instructor-led training. Add social learning to the list of terminology in a CLO’s arsenal, because chances are when learning executives interact with their peers, the term is going to crop up. Consider, in 2012 social learning spending for large U.S.

2009 Predictions How Did I Do?

Tony Karrer

1 - "Self-Directed Learning" Increases Due to economic pressures, companies are going to reduce training budgets to a point where it doesn't make sense to create content on marginal topics. Instead, we will call this "self-directed learning" and will do our best to support the workforce to learn it on their own with minimal guidance and support. But the reality was more than that as I explored in posts like Business of Learning and Models for Learning Questions.

Microlearning: What’s Old Is New Again

CLO Magazine

If there’s anything my 35-plus years in the learning field have shown me, it’s that we like to make stuff up, give it a name, talk about it at conferences and stuff it into our toolkit way too quickly. From the laserdisc player (that’s right, I was around when that technology hit the learning radar) to gamification, we often put modality ahead of methodology.

Learning Goes Social

CLO Magazine

New technology is empowering employees more than ever to control their own learning and development. As corporate America continues to embrace social tools for learning and development, social learning has shed its reputation as a transient industry buzzword. With a laser-like focus on the end user, emerging technologies are shifting some of the power and onus from the learning function to the individual learner. Learning materials must be easily accessible.

Why Moving Your Online Training Courses From Flash To HTML5 Makes Business Sense

Adobe Captivate

While mobile learning or mLearning is being widely adopted, the challenge of how to handle the migration from Flash to HTML5 still persists. While mLearning or mobile learning adoption for new requirements has gained tremendous momentum in the last few years, you still have the challenge of what you should do with your investment that is locked in your legacy Flash courses. Facilitate application of the learning (not just knowledge acquisition).

Learning Should Be as Mobile as We Are

CLO Magazine

High-impact learning brings information and capability in practical ways We’ve all read about informal learning. If we want corporate learning to be compelling and relevant, it must be personalized, timely and continuous. For many years the training industry — led by the military — built specialized, expensive learning platforms you could take on the road. We’ve all read about informal learning.

And ADDIE wasn't even there to see it.

bozarthzone

There's been lot of talk in Twitterland lately about the usefulness of the ADDIE process model often used in instructional design (much on the theme of whether ADDIE is dead), and the validity/existence of "informal" learning. In this second scenario, we see something on the learning continuum between formal (in the sense of an intentional,planned event, either live or online) and informal (in the sense of an employee at the point of need accessing help)learning.

Through the Workscape Looking Glass

Jay Cross

Learning Ecosystem, Learning Ecology, and Learnscape mean the same thing as Workscape. I don’t use the word learn with executives, who inevitably think back to the awfulness of school and close their ears. In the same vein, I talk about Working Smarter instead of informal learning, social learning, and so forth. Some people denigrate informal learning but nobody’s against Working Smarter. However, compliance is not learning.
