Today’s workforce is more global, mobile, and social than ever before. This presents unique challenges to training professionals, most notably: how do we best support these learners?
The key first step to enabling today’s learners involves re-evaluating, and consequently better awareness of, modern learning culture.
While technology certainly impacts the modern classroom and its associated culture, it is not the only defining factor. As trainers, we must address manager support, job-relevancy, and proven design concepts, in addition to new technologies and methodologies.
Understanding and managing all of these components can feel overwhelming. We’ve created and assembled an integrated collection of complimentary resources to help you better understand modern learning culture.
At the core of this compilation is a strong belief in tried-and-true learning and design principles, such as adult learning theory, and a belief in leveraging appropriate tools in authentic learning environments.
