Summary of Informal Learning in Organizations
How to Create a Continuous Learning Culture
Most development within organizations occurs through informal learning.
Seasoned learning and development (L&D) professional Robin Hoyle explains why organizations need to manage informal learning and how they can do it well. Planning and management apply to purposeful undertakings – for example, classroom instruction – but informal learning is ad hoc and unrestrained. The solution lies working with the inherent contradiction between unscripted improvisational learning and the degree of structure a company needs to organize its employees and to track what they know and what they’re learning. getAbstract recommends Hoyle’s guidance and his program to L&D professionals.
