Millenials: Babyboomers: GenerationX: Pragmatists Reflector:Theorist:Technophobic:Tech Savvy:the list goes on……

We know that our learners are different and all have varying learning needs, but do we really know what they want and need from our learning solutions, or do we just think that we do?

Over the last 4 weeks at LPI’s Learning Live event, HRM Cologne, and last week during her 5 minute Ignite session at the World of Learning, Laura Overton has been exploring the danger of labelling our learners and what we can do about it.

If you missed Laura’s session, you can catch up here on You Tube!

If you really want to get inside the heads of your learners, find out how to get involved with our learner audit.

Do take part in our mini poll to tell us how you find out what your learners want and need from L&D.

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.
