Organizational development consultant Jane Hart, who founded the Center for Learning & Performance Technologies, offers a full toolbox for learning professionals who want to overhaul their operations for the 21st century. Hart says many L&D professionals are stuck delivering ineffective classroom and online training. They bog down in boring, irrelevant courses that force productive employees away from their work, wasting valuable time and resources. Here’s how to tap into what savvy employees are doing anyway: learning what they need on their own – in the course of doing their work – using search tools, social media, intranets, open online courses, personal networks, peer-to-peer, knowledge feeds, on-the-job experiences and other tools that support independent learning. Though her manual is repetitive and not very well edited, getAbstract recommends Hart’s lessons to learners who are seeking useful resources for independent learning and to L&D professionals who wish to support workers’ self-education.
In this book, you will learn
- How enormous change is reshaping workplace learning;
- Why formal training often fails; and
- What methods you can use to build a modern, effective learning culture that supports the ways your employees learn today.
