TMN - Pulling Learners to Your Content: How to Make it Work

June 8, 2016

Instructor: Jennifer Hofmann

logo-tmndemo-1

The Role of Environment, Microlearning, and Social Collaborative Tools

In a recent session titled, How to Engage Modern Learners: When to "Push" and When to "Pull,"  we discussed when we should embed “Pull Learning” content into the flow of work. That discussion was grounded in the principles of Modern Workplace Learning, and I suggested that considering the 5 Moments of Learning Need was a good way to determine when pull learning was most appropriate.  While formal ‘push’ training is often best for when people are learning something new, and for when things change, a strong argument can be made that ‘pull’ learning lends itself to the following moments of need:

  • When learners need to build on concepts that they learned in a more formal training environment.
  • When they need to apply what they've learned.
  • When things go wrong.

We need to anticipate these moments of need, and embed accessible content so workers can constantly learn when it is most appropriate for them.

101 Ways to Expand Learning Beyond the Classroom

May 3, 2016

Instructor: Elaine Biech

Insyncbyte20

As today's talent development professional, you have multiple options for delivering learning to employees. The 70-20-10 model (70% hands-on experiences; 20% developmental interactions; 10% formal learning) continues to serve as a valuable guideline for using the wide variety of developmental options available.

We are experts in the 10% domain-delivering training or programs-but what's our role beyond instructor led training? How do we create and deliver personalized developmental experiences? How can we support social learning? How can we ensure employees are immersed in the “right” experiential learning? What is our role to influence the interaction between employees and their supervisors? How can we stimulate informal learning? This webinar will help you look beyond virtual and traditional classrooms to expand your learners’ options.

TMN - How to Engage Modern Learners: When to "Push" and When to "Pull"

March 8, 2016

Instructor: Jennifer Hofmann

logo-tmndemo-1

Does your personal expectation of learning align with how you learned 10, 20, or even 30 years ago?  Of course not.  Because you are a modern learner!  You have a choice in how you learn, and so do the learners you're developing and designing training content for.

The modern workplace requires us to develop strategies that engage your learners, keeping your audience and the anticipated learning environment in mind. Not all learning needs to be formally scheduled or assessed.  As a matter of fact, most modern learning takes place in the moment of need. The design of the learning will be influenced by where and when learning is anticipated to occur, and success will be dependent on the technology selection, implementation strategy (stand alone, blended, or micro-learning), and design approach.

TMN - 10 Things to Do Immediately to Modernize Your Learning Culture

December 2, 2015

Instructor: Jennifer Hofmann

We've been hearing a lot about the modern classroom environment lately. And there is no doubt that modern learners have more options about where and how they learn. We also know that today's workplace demands training be embedded in the workflow, with minimal disruption to the daily routine.

It's ironic that while access to content is becoming more individualized, teams are becoming more collaborative in nature. How do we support this as our workforce becomes more global, virtual, and mobile?

ATD - 5 Steps to Making Your Virtual Classroom Mobile and Social

August 28, 2015

Instructor: Jennifer Hofmann

 
ATD_Logo

In today’s hyper-networked virtual, global, and mobile workplace, organizations are beginning to rely on informal learning using social networks and mobile technologies. This makes sense. Social media provides rich resources for informal learning outside the classroom as well as supplemental learning within the classroom. Both timely and collaborative, social media outlets provide you with the power to make sure learning occurs during your events and continues afterward. It can be used to build community and continue the learning conversation started in the classroom, as a stand-alone “just in time” set of resources for instant gratification, or for anything in between.
