Learners are changing. They are demanding easier access, more information and better alignment of content to their jobs. Likewise technology is changing and new vendors are providing a wide array of products that promise faster and better learning. As a result, Learning & Development (L&D) teams are at a crossroads where they are being marginalized by the industry (e.g., 70:20:10) by learners who are seeking their own content resources and by the business units and IT groups that are funding new technology to support learners. By understanding how informal learning is growing organically and getting involved in managing it, L&D teams can maintain relevance within an organization’s development ecosystem. More importantly, if L&D teams can measure and monitor three aspects of informal learning (efficiency, effectiveness and outcomes), they can have a voice in managing it and help the organization reach business goals.
Come to this event with your needs, challenges and insights as we examine research about the new informal learning ecosystem and how you can apply a simple frame to measure it.
