Today’s Learning Agenda Exposed  Tamar Elkeles, Chief Learning Officer Magazine, 19 November 2018

“We don’t “own” learning or employee development. The employer-employee relationship has changed and so must our learning and talent organizations. We are facilitators of knowledge and information sharing across the organization but we cannot even begin to manage the massive amount of information or content that our employees seek or receive. There’s too much input to manage today.”

How To Make Learning A Habit You Enjoy  Liz Guthridge, Forbes, 21 November 2018

“Adult learners don’t have to sit in uncomfortable chairs with heavy textbooks and notebooks piled on their desks. Nor do adult learners have to sign up for monotonous online courses featuring videos of talking heads. You give yourself the permission and flexibility to integrate learning into your day as you see fit. And you’ll discover that learning doesn’t have to be a discrete activity that begins when a bell rings or a deadline looms. Instead, learning is more like a regular exercise routine you voluntarily do on your time schedule.”

In the afternoon of Wednesday 30th January Harold Jarche  will run an interactive workshop on Hacking uncertainty through continuous learning in which he will present frameworks for sense-making in complex and chaotic environments.

Modern Workplace Learning 2018: A Framework for Continuous Improvement, Learning & Development

An extract from Jane Hart’s latest edition of the MWL book 

The difference between formal and informal learning

Although the two terms “formal learning” and “informal learning are now quite commonplace, they still seem to be causing some confusion.  So let’s look at some definitions from CEDEFOP  – the European Centre for Vocation and Training.

Promoting continuous learning in the workplace

Online Workshop runs 14 January – 23 February 2019

Continuous learning and development in the workplace doesn’t mean providing continuous training. Whilst it is up to everyone to become a lifelong learner and keep up to date with what’s happening in their industry or profession to remain employable, it’s also up to L&D departments to help individuals become continuous learners. In this 6-week workshop we will look at how you can help and support individuals to become independent continuous learners and provide continuous learning opportunities..
