  • 2:00 Beyond the Classroom – Choosing the Optimum Blend of Tools, Strategies, and Techniques for “Formal” AND “Informal” Learning While the “art and science” of how to choose and use the various learning modalities to solve today’s training problems is challenging enough, add into the equation that an estimated 80% of learning in the workplace is “informal” and you can quickly realize that there is a real need for instructional designers to be able to expand their palette of tools and techniques to fully address their customer’s training and support requirements. In addition, many of the customers view “formal learning” as the sole answer to their training requirements and are unaware of the value and role that “informal learning” elements can provide as an integral part of an overarching blended learning solution. This session is geared to provide training professionals with best practices and approaches (including a hands-on job aid routed in sound pedagogical principles) in determining the “what,” “why,” “where,” and “when” for employing an optimum blended of formal and informal learning and support strategies. Elements of the job-aid will also serve as a communication tool to gain customers (who are sponsoring the design and development of the various learning interventions) an understanding and “buy-in” of the proposed solution(s).
