From one brain to another: What we've learned about learning
An Acclivus Research Report
Training professionals have long known a great deal about how the brain works, even if they never studied neuroscience. However, many recent findings should definitely change how we approach training and course design. In the research report, "What We've Learned About Learning," Acclivus reveals insights that are most pertinent to training professionals, including:
  • How to engage learners and keep them engaged
  • How to make emotional connections that ensure more receptive learners
  • How empathy works in the brain, allowing us to have greater influence on attitudes and behavior
  • What we need to understand about the limits of short-term memory

Can job training trump a degree?
International Herald Tribune
China and India, Asian giants with a staggering 2.5 billion people between them, have a big problem with their youth. No matter how much they increase education funding or how quickly they build universities, there is no way there will be enough places for everyone. Even if there were, the reality is that not every young person has the academic background, motivation or desire to complete a four-year university education.

Create your own career experience
Metro
To succeed in the new world of work, you have to create your own educational experience. You need to be a lifelong learner, because the skills demanded by the economy are constantly changing, and what you know today might not be relevant even a year from now. In a new study by my company in partnership with Internships.com, we found that 69 percent of students believe it's both their and their colleges' responsibility to be prepared for the working world.

Job training programs: Why bother?
TIME
The stimulus package was supposed to get people working — in the short- and long-run alike. But based on unemployment figures released last week, the stimulus bill seems to be a lot less stimulating in the real world than it was when drawn up on paper. Has the money been poorly misspent? In terms of job training, that seems like the case. Everyone loves the idea of helping laid-off workers get new skills for new careers, but it turns out that job training programs have been largely ineffectual in helping laid-off workers find jobs.

Report: US teacher training an 'industry of mediocrity'
The Associated Press via CBS News
The nation's teacher-training programs do not adequately prepare would-be educators for the classroom, even as they produce almost triple the number of graduates needed, according to a survey of more than 1,000 programs. The National Council on Teacher Quality review is a scathing assessment of colleges' education programs and their admission standards, training and value. The report, which drew immediate criticism, was designed to be provocative and urges leaders at teacher-training programs to rethink what skills would-be educators need to be taught to thrive in the classrooms of today and tomorrow.

Training evaluation mistake No.8: Treating Training Value Demonstration as a Separate Entity
Kirkpatrick Partners
We often are asked how much should be spent to show the value that training delivers to an organization, and how and when this should occur. Our response may surprise you. Showing the value of training is actually quite straightforward if you've taken the right steps throughout the needs assessment, design/development and implementation phases. It does not require a separate line item in the budget, nor should it be viewed as its own process. Value demonstration will not be successful if the determination of how the value will be measured does not occur until after the training is delivered.
