Learning Pool's Wendy Kay on 'E-learning for Leaders'.

  1. 1. E-Learning and Leaders
  2. 2. 3 Questions <ul><li>Do you have a development plan for your top team? </li></ul><ul><li>What type of learning activity do your top team undertake? </li></ul><ul><li>Would you be confident in sharing your e-learning with your CEO/Directors for their learning? </li></ul>
  3. 3. Your Audience in 2007 <ul><li>A survey of 1,000 managers conducted by the Chartered Management Institute found that technological and cultural &quot;barriers&quot; have prevented large scale uptake of online learning at senior level in UK companies. </li></ul>
  4. 4. <ul><li>Penny de Valk, chief executive at the Institute of Leadership & Management (ILM), said: “E-learning is just one of a range of development tools available to managers, and although not a direct substitute for face-to-face contact with a tutor or trainer, it can be a powerful cost and time-effective means of supplementing and enhancing a learning experience, as part of a blended learning approach. The challenge for e-learning providers is to make the online experience as engaging and relevant as a more traditional learning environment,” </li></ul><ul><li>she added. </li></ul>
  5. 5. Your Audience in 2011 <ul><li>The results of the Reinventing Leadership Development study signal a shift from a traditional preference for classroom-based training for soft skills such as leadership to a greater use of e-learning technologies. The survey's participants, individuals from more than 180 organisations tasked with implementing workplace leadership development programmes, did not identify &quot;the classroom&quot; when asked to list managers' top three methods of </li></ul><ul><li>learning delivery. </li></ul>
  6. 6. <ul><li>While nearly 60 per cent of participants said paper-based learning materials were the first choice for senior managers, all other tiers chose e-learning methods. </li></ul><ul><li>Mobile devices would be the preferred method of learning delivery for 70 per cent of middle managers, participants said, while nearly half chose &quot;immersive learning environments&quot; and 41 per cent chose video. </li></ul><ul><li>Participants said off-the-shelf e-learning courses would be the first choice for 60 per cent of first-line supervisors, while 46 per cent preferred a virtual classroom, and 40 per cent indicated a preference for in-house social media.  </li></ul><ul><li>Among future managers, participants said 39 per cent would select social networks as their preferred method of learning delivery, 38 per cent would prefer m-learning content, and 32 per cent an &quot;immersive learning environment&quot;. </li></ul>
  7. 7. Popular Delivery Methods <ul><li>Podcasts </li></ul><ul><li>Videos </li></ul><ul><li>Mobile Devices </li></ul><ul><li>Video conferencing </li></ul><ul><li>Virtual classrooms </li></ul><ul><li>Social Media </li></ul><ul><li>On line resources </li></ul><ul><li>E-books </li></ul><ul><li>E-learning </li></ul><ul><li>Diagnostic tools </li></ul>
