Mimeo Webinar Recap & Follow-Up

17482945_s.jpgRecently, the InSync team partnered with Mimeo to explore the current climate of corporate learning. We crafted a survey that asked questions about organization learning and the experiences of practitioners in the field. Over four hundred respondents completed the questionnaire, and their insights laid the foundation for our joint eBook, The State of Learning & Development in 2016.

Readers found the facts presented in this report both insightful and reassuring. We believed, though, that providing context and recommended application approaches for the empirical information was a critical next step. For this reason, Mimeo hosted me and their VP of Talent Development, Brad Thurber, so we could share our insights into the data we collected.

This blog answers attendee questions concerning the major trends deemed key by the study, and directs you to helpful resources that complement the survey results and webinar discussion. To get the most from this post, watch the webinar recording here and download the complimentary eBook here.

Training Magazine Network Session Recap 

21177809_s.jpgSeveral months ago, Jennifer Hofmann’s presentation “How to Engage Modern Learners,” explored the differences between Push training and Pull learning. Traditional training focuses on the Push – formal scheduled programs that provide planned, siloed instruction. Pull learning, on the other hand, uses a decentralized, learner-centric approach to make content readily available in a specific moment of learning need. Both Push and Pull play key roles in the modern learning culture.

Training Magazine Network’s audience found this learning event so helpful, they invited Jennifer back to present “Pulling Learners to Your Content: How to Make it Work” on June 8. In this follow-up session, Jennifer discussed learner engagement in modern workplace learning, the five moments of need learners experience, and moving Pull learning from theory to practice.

This blog post shares a step-by-step approach you can use for creating microlearning Push activities, as well as an example of how to do so. To review all of the information covered in the June 8th session, access the full recording here.

Translating_the_Language_of_Learning_Creates_Value_for_Everyone_3_9_2016As members of the L&D profession, we often find ourselves having to justify our choices about learning design.
