Top 7 learning trends
The report covers these key areas and questions to consider:
1. Incidental learning. We learn something new everyday, from being a child right through to adulthood. How can we embrace everything we learn in everyday life and bring it back into the workplace?
2. Adaptive teaching. Everybody learns differently. We all have our own knowledge levels and learning potential, strategies, experiences and preferences. How can you make training more personal?
3. MOOCs (Massive Open Online Courses). With over 4,850 free online courses readily available and 35 million students signing up for at least one of these last year – what role do MOOCs play in the workplace?
4. Accreditation badges. Why you should consider rewarding employees a 'digital badge' for undertaking informal learning in the workplace. This will help motivate employees, drive skills progression and continuous learning.
5. Learning analytics. Understand how you can grasp the power of big data and implement learning analytics into your organisation. This way, business leaders can work with employees to set realistic goals – and celebrate success.
6. E-books. Are e-books the learning of the future? Discover how you can use them as a tool to transform working relationships, assess reading/learning habits, and foster collaboration. Did you know you can embed performance management assessments into them now too?
7. Mobile learning (m-learning). In recent research carried out by Towards Maturity, over half (57%) of respondents said they'd like to access learning on the go. What m-learning facilities do you offer in your organisation?
