A new approach to workplace learning A new approach to workplace learning Presentation Transcript

  • It’s time for A NEW APPROACH TO WORKPLACE LEARNING
  • For years this has been the model for learning 
  • Today’s training is   mostly …classroom‐based, e‐learning or blended EVENTS
  • BUTFilling heads with  People forget most knowledge is  of what they have inefficient and  been taught very ineffective quickly
  • It takes time and effort to create (e‐)coursesMany are content‐rich and interaction poorOthers are costly solutions to problems that could  Expensive systems track user have been solved in  activity ‐ but not application cheaper ways of the learning in the job.
  • Meanwhile outside the classroom people are learning in other ways …… often without realising it … and continuously 
  • Most “learning” takes place in conversations,  and interactions with other people … in the flow of work This isinformal learning 
  • In fact 70‐90% of a person’s learning happens sociallyand informally  and yet L&D focus their attention on the 10‐30%  ‐ formal(content‐based) training.
  • The emergence of social media has also turned the  concept of “learning” upside down The easy availability of tools has meant ..
  • Individuals are using them for their own personal learning:‐ To search for and access all kinds of resources whenever they need them ‐ To create their own resources and share them with others
  • ‐ To make connections with colleagues inside and outside the organization‐ With whom they can communicate and share ideas, resources and experiences
  • Groups are using them to “self‐organize”:‐ To collaborate and co‐create content and generally work and learn together
  • Even within training, social media tools are being used  by students (as well as teachers) to provide a more   participative, social and collaborative approach to  learning.
  • ButLEARNING is not the end goal; but a means to an endIt’s about PERFORMANCE;people doing their jobs (better)In fact, it’s all about WORKING SMARTER
  • "Working smarter is the key to  sustainability and continuous improvement. The accelerating rate of  change forces everyone in every  organization to make a choice: learn  while you work or become obsolete.  Jay Cross, Working Smarter Fieldbook, 2010
  • Social Learning = Working smarter with social media Social learning is not something you read or talk about; it’s  Lead by examplesomething you DO Practice what you preach
  • 10 step plan for working smarter1 – Re‐think definition of “learning” to include informal2 ‐ Focus efforts on informal, social, collaborative learning3 ‐ Let individuals drive their own learning; L&D can guide4 – Develop autonomous, self‐directed individuals & groups5 – Encourage effective and  productive use of social media6 – Provide performance consulting services7 – Help teams build their own “solutions”8 – Embed “solutions” in the workflow 9 – Ensure technology enables not controls learning10 – Measure success in terms of performance outcomes
