by | Feb 1, 2013 | Articles

9 out of 10 L&D professionals now believe it is important to integrate learning and work more effectively and 2013 will be a pivotal year for change for the profession.

We can no longer ignore the fact that organisations and individuals are expected to respond continually to change, and learning professionals now have a unique opportunity to support them. This presentation, delivered by Laura Overton, Managing Director of an independent benchmarking company at Learning Technologies 2013, looked at the latest research from Towards Maturity with 500 organisations to explore what we can learning from top learning companies who are successfully integrating learning into the workplace.

The session considered practical ways to:

  • Respond faster to business change
  • Increase the on-going sharing of good practice
  • Improve the application of learning back at work
  • Build talent and performance
  • Adapt learning to individual need

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.
