Beyond the Buzz of learning Technologies – an interview with Towards Maturity

by | Feb 15, 2013 | Articles, Interviews

Martin Couzins, LearnPatch recorded this google hangout with Laura Overton to discuss the buzz about this year’s Learning Technologies

The discussion was wide ranging and looked at:

  • What’s driving the increased hunger for learning technology adoption
  • Are we walking the walk or just talking the talk
  • Overcoming the barriers to change
  • Mobile and social – are we driven by the needs of the business or the latest technology
  • Challenging our assumptions around learners
  • Learning from the top learning companies
  • Working more effectively with providers
  • Actions that L&D teams need to take in 2013

Laura quoted from the latest benchmark study from Towards Maturity and the new Learner Audit now available. She also highlighted the new Infographic available for handy hints and tips which was part of the Learning Technologies take-away.

This interview between Laura Overton, MD of the Towards Maturity benchmark practice and Martin Couzins of LearnPatch was streamed live on 15 Feb 2013.

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?

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.
