From around the Web

When You’re Too Busy Delivering Training To Do Digital L&D David James, 3 April 2018
“In my recent experience, it seems many L&D professionals are too busy delivering training to dedicate time to their own digital development. As a result, the L&D provision in many organisations is still predominantly classroom-based, and any individual employee’s experience of L&D is limited to occasional events and technology ‘solutions’ outsourced to vendors or simply bought in ‘off-the-shelf’. Perhaps these are reasons why less than a quarter of workers surveyed had completed a course of any kind in the previous 2 years.”

Next public workshop runs: 16 April – 11 May 2018
In the modern workplace it is no longer enough for L&D to just organise and manage modern training, they also need to enable and support constant learning at work. In this 4-week online workshop we look at how to help managers and individuals get the most out of and learn from their daily working (and learning) experiences.
