by | Feb 23, 2015 | Articles, Event Slides

L&D professionals spend a lot of time building ‘learner centric’ strategies that help them connect with staff in vibrant new ways and yet 3 out of 5 claim that their learners and managers fail to engage.

This is a number that increases year on year. So where are we going wrong and how can our learners help us get back on track?

We explore:

  • 4 ‘learner centric’ myths that could be crippling your L&D strategy
  • 7 learner insights that will blow your mind
  • 5 ideas for building a truly customer activated learning strategy

This resource draws on the insights from over 15,000 learners who have taken part in the Towards Maturity Learning Landscape to help you rethink the way that you engage with your learners in 2015. Here we debunk the common myths that L&D leaders have about being ‘learner centric’ and we’ll show you how the authentic learner voice can turn around your L&D strategy, for good.

Top Tips for Building Habits

As learning professionals, we want to design interventions that lead to lasting change. Shifting behaviour involves a process that continues long after the programme finishes. Our research has shown that mature learning organisations are more successful at integrating learning and work, but they don’t abandon formal learning. One of their strategies is to design learning campaigns and programmes that build and encourage new habits.
