The impossible dream: building a strategy for informal learning
We know people learn at work all the time – regardless of the involvement of their L&D department. If you think managing informal learning is a case of corporate cat herding, then you’re probably right. But that doesn’t mean you can’t create the conditions in which informal learning might be directed towards organisational improvement, team success and enhanced individual capability.
In this interactive session you’ll discover:
• What needs to be in your L&D strategy to enable informal learning to play a role;
• How to create the conditions for purposeful enquiry within your organisation, and
• How formal L&D approaches can foster informal learning (spoiler alert: there is no quick fix!)
