LearningNow – Cost effective ways to reach out to and motivate learners

by | Mar 19, 2014 | Articles

Are you interested in new ideas to help deliver learning that is more effective, efficient and engaging? If yes, I wanted to let you know that there are a few places left at our free LearningNow Workshop, in London on Wednesday the 2nd of April from 9.45 to 13.45 at One Drummond Gate, Victoria, London.

LearningNow is a joint initiative with Towards Maturity and Epic (one of our founding Ambassadors). The programme is designed to provide you with the opportunity to hear from great speakers and, perhaps more importantly, share ideas with each other about what works and what doesn’t.

Engaging reluctant learners – the key to success

In the 2013-14 Towards Maturity Benchmark we see that L&D leaders have an increasing hunger to deliver business results with technology enabled learning. For example, over nine out of ten benchmark participants are looking to help them increase staff productivity and improve staff satisfaction. Yet fewer than three in ten are successfully acheiving these aims. Nearly half report staff and manager reluctance as one of the biggest barriers to change.

From a staff perspective, they say they are reluctant to engage due to uninspiring content, the fact that they can’t get what they want where they need it and the fact that they can’t find what they need (from 2,000 learners in the Towards Maturity Learning Landscape Audit.

This month’s LearningNow event will provide an opportunity to share ideas on how to connect and engage with busy staff. How to reach out and motivate time starved learners and how to work smarter with resources that we already have are just two of the topics we will be tackling on the 2nd, so I hope that you will be able to come along!

We hope that you will join us and other members of the Towards Maturity Research Community to share ideas on the 2nd of April!

I appreciate that many members of the Towards Maturity research community are not based in the UK – whilst the workshop provides the powerful benefit of networking, learning and sharing with each other, we will be summarising the outputs from the day in our LearningNow Updates.

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.

Towards Maturity Learning Health Check season extended to Monday 16 September. Early 2019 results highlight that only 7% of L&D leaders report that their organisation encourages and provides time for reflection*

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.
