Accelerating the promise

How do we deliver more for less in learning without compromising quality?

Technology opens up new systems, communication platforms and distribution channels for learning and collaboration that can significantly enhance the learning professional’s toolkit.

Today’s promises of technology include:

  • Be more responsive to changing business needs
  • Get staff up & running  (& changing direction) faster than ever before
  • Extend reach, breadth and depth of learning offering
  • Whilst saving time  & money

According to the CIPD, e-learning is the fastest growing learning intervention in 2010 but only 12% rate it as effective. On the other hand, our own benchmarks flag up that some (but not all!) are finding that it helps to improve responsiveness to changing business needs, delivers better quality, faster induction processes.  The promise is within reach but how do we deliver ( and deliver it faster)?

How to accelerate the promise was discussed at WOLCE 2010 this year at a a free seminar where we considered some facts and figures from our research over the years to look at what we need to improve (& to dispell a few myths that could be holding us back!)

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.

By popular demand, the 2019 Learning Health Check season has now been extended until Monday 16th September. There is still enough time to complete your review and revisiting regularly can also help learning professionals to measure progress year on year, highlight areas where improvement is needed and provide evidence to build a business case for change.
