From around the Web

If your employees are not learning they are not learning  Mark Murphy, Forbes, 21 January 2018

“There’s a strong positive relationship between how much people learn on the job and how much they love their job.”

Is L&D falling out of love with collaboration?  Donald Taylor, 23 January 2018

“In my experience, it takes about a decade for a new idea in L&D to gain first wide-spread acceptance, and then adoption. The voting patterns for ‘Collaborative/social learning’ and its current slowly declining share of the vote is evidence of both acceptance and some adoption. While still important in the minds of L&D, collaborative learning is no longer as ‘hot’ as it once was.”

eLearning Trends of 2018 – 57 Experts Share Their Predictions  Bryan Adams, 23 January 2018

“What are the top eLearning trends for 2018? I interviewed 57 experts and asked them to pick their top 3 trends. Below are their awesome responses.”

Have we lost the conversation  Mark Britz, 23 January 2018

“Technology always seems to start so sincere. Early enterprise social tech for example was simple, serving only to extend and expand conversation. Now, over-developed, over-hyped, over-marketed, measured and controlled, it’s real value lays in the margins as it’s potential is scrutinized and challenged slowing its progress. Typical of us to take something pure, easy and natural and create monsters.”

Meaningful change for L&D in 2018 – According to the Experts  JD Dillon, Axonify, 26 January 2018
“Trends can certainly show us what’s coming down the pike for our profession, but they don’t always align to where you are as an organization and as a professional. That’s why I wanted to do something a bit more practical for our curated January blog post. To that end, I contacted some of the smartest people I know and asked them three simple questions. My goal is to provide specific, achievable ideas you can use this year to evolve your L&D (learning and development) practices for the better.”
