The term 'blended learning' isn't descriptive enough anymore. Especially when we consider that learning takes place perpetually – even when the training department isn't looking! To become more of a partner with our business, we need to make sure learning opportunities and content are where and when our learners need them. If they are not, our learners will turn to search engines to find the information they need and hope for the best.
To stay relevant, the Learning and Development field needs to think beyond the 'formal learning' box, and consider the shifting characteristics of our learners.
Perpetual learning takes into consideration that everything we do, in every waking moment, is, or can be, an opportunity to learn. Every time we read an article, click a link, or complete a task, we are learning something new or practicing/reinforcing a skill. Sometimes it is conscious, sometimes unconscious. But it is STILL LEARNING. All the time. Perpetually.
This discussion will focus on:
- Incorporating the shifting characteristics of modern learners into learning design;
- Designing learning campaigns that ‘connect the dots’ and consider what the learners bring to the table;
- Becoming a trusted advisor to our learners by providing pathways through collaborative, perpetual learning experiences; and
- Building a relationship with learners that ensures they come to us (and the resources we provide in strategic learning hubs) first
