With seemingly unlimited access to information today, individuals are changing the way they learn – and organisations need to catch up. The old ways of training, whether in the classroom or online, are no longer compelling.
“What is the best way to change – with a huge leap of faith, or by taking incremental steps? And if you take smaller steps, which will make the most difference?” asks conference chair, Donald H Taylor.
“In this interactive session, Jane Hart will consider the small changes L&D can make to help organisational learning become more relevant in the modern age.”
Jane Hart’s session, Transforming organisational learning, will compare web-fuelled learning with older training approaches and identify the opportunities for small changes to old practices. The conference session will consider how L&D can narrow the gap between formal and informal learning, balancing the need for content and social interaction and enhancing the role of the workplace learning professional.
Jane Hart is a social learning consultant, helping business and education understand how new technologies can be used for learning and business performance. Jane is the Founder of the Centre for Learning & Performance Technologies which provides a number of free resources for L&D professionals, including the Directory of Learning Tools, the Top 100 Tools for Learning and the Connexions Directory of Learning Professionals Online.
The Learning and Skills Group Conference is an annual follow up conference to Learning Technologies, examining learning-industry trends, practical strategies and the technologies that are driving organisational learning. It takes place on 17 June at Olympia in London.
The complete Learning and Skills Group Conference programme and details of how to attend are available on the conference website.
An exhibition of thirty six learning providers, the Learning Technologies Summer Forum, runs alongside the Conference and delegates will also be able to attend this as part of their LSG conference registration.
