In the last 25 years there has been a big change in the way that many people learn, primarily driven by the use of the Web. They now have unlimited access to resources of all kinds, and they are building professional learning networks to exchange ideas and resources with one another. When faced with traditional training and e-learning practices in their organisations, they are often bypassing L&D to address their own learning and performance problems in the way that best suits them.
Modern Workplace Learning is therefore about supporting organisational learning in more relevant ways for today’s workforce. It is as much about developing new learning initiatives as about building the new independent personal and social learning skills for the Networked Age that will be key for organisation growth.
Here we offer a range of opportunities to help workplace learning professionals begin the process of modernising workplace learning in their own organisations.
