Modernising training – a first step towards Modern Workplace Learning

My 10-year survey of learning tools shows how many individuals are now using the Web to take charge of their own self-improvement – from addressing their performance problems to organising and managing their own professional development.

Whilst many organisations are not yet ready for their L&D teams to move away from a top-down training/knowledge transfer model to one of empowering and supporting self-reliant employees (and their managers) –  which is what Modern Workplace Learning is all about – most are ready to consider how to design and develop modern training experiences. These are ones that are more inline with how people like to learn on the Web:  in short sessions, using their smart devices, with and from others, both continuously and on demand, with a lot of choice, flexibility and autonomy over what they do and how they do it.

Our next 4-week online workshop, Modern Training therefore considers a number of ways of developing modern content and learning experiences – and covers the following topics

  1. Creating or curating a continuous knowledge flow
  2. Providing flexible on demand resources
  3. Facilitating social online learning
  4. Running learning campaigns

The workshop takes place entirely online during the period Monday 8 May – Friday 2 June 2017.

It models a new approach to facilitating a social learning experience as it is hosted in a private group on Yammer (an enterprise social network) rather than a learning platform – so that the focus is on being social, sharing your your thoughts and your work on the weekly tasks or activities.  It also supports a very flexible approach to learning, in that you can participate when and how it best suits you;  nothing is compulsory, and there are no deadlines – but you will find that the more you “work out loud” with the other participants, the more you will get out of the workshop.

You will probably want to commit a couple of hours a week for this workshop, but once again it is up to you how much time you devote to it, and also when you do the work and how you fit it into your life. And as there are NO synchronous activities the workshop is suitable for any time-zone.

You will also receive a free PDF copy of my book, Learning in the Modern Workplace 2017 to use as a reference.

    Hi Jane, your upcoming workshop commencing Monday sounds great! However a kick off on 8th is not quite working for me and potentially others whom I wish to share this with. Are there any intentions to run another workshop soon after?
