Program Description:

Given the profile of the learner in today's workforce, do you have a robust informal learning strategy in place?

Studies show the increasing need to support both formal and informal learning for employees in organizations and indicate consumption rates are greater through the use of informal methods such as video, collaboration, reading articles, digital books and storytelling; yet, many fail to use informal methods to help employees improve performance.

Implementing informal learning can be difficult when you are in an organization that has an existing learning strategy and a disinclination to try something new. Does your organization tend to shy away from methods that do not include traditional instructional design principles?

This session will provide you with the knowledge to help you influence a change. It's a matter of hacking into your traditional learning design and trying new strategies.

Join us for lunch, and learn more about:

  • Research and cases that support the need for more informal learning 
  • Using informal strategies to address issues and influence the learning journey
  • Ideas to implement in your organization to increase the use of informal learning
