Welcome to Towards Maturity

by | Jul 13, 2007 | Articles

Welcome to the new site for the work of the e-skills uk e-learning project.

For the past 2 years we have been working with employers and those supporting employers to understand how we can improve the impact of e-learning at work by identifying and sharing effective practice.

Our research at the beginning of this year has shown that employers who are mature in the use of e-learning perceive a positive difference on both their staff and business productivity.

So what lessons can we learn from each other as we seek to increase e-learning maturity in the work place? How can we make sure that we don’t reinvent the wheel?

This project looks at what really works (and what doesn’t!) – what types of technologies are appropriate for learning at work and how can they be used to build skills that impact business performance.

Over the next year we will be adding even more practical content for you to use in your own organisation:

  • Case studies
  • Research
  • Podcast interviews with experts
  • Articles and white papers

You can keep in touch by using the RSS feeds or by subscribing to our regular newsletter.

The project is supported by a Virtual Advisory Network of organisations and individuals representing a wealth of  experience in this area. Much of the content you will find here has been provided by them.

We hope that you will find this useful in your journey towards e-learning maturity and look forward to your feedback

The Great Training Robbery

The Great Training Robbery

According to research published by Harvard Business School (HBS), organisations across the globe are experiencing ‘The Great Training Robbery’ because the correct conditions and culture for learning are not in place. People are not ready and willing to change, and ultimately learn.

La Vie en Rose, does seeing ‘life in pink’ matter?

Learning can be defined in many ways, but most psychologists would agree that it is a relatively permanent change in behaviour that results from experience. The three major types of learning described by behavioural psychology are; classical conditioning, operant conditioning and observational learning. In order for learning to stick and becomes the new normal, all three types require self-driven will. Therefore, how people view the world through their lens matters.
