Learning Solutions Magazine
If you think about it, marketers have the same goals as learning and development professionals: we are trying to capture the attention of our audiences and move them to take action. We are trying to influence behaviour. Often, it seems that marketers have more success than learning professionals. It might help engage and influence learners if L&D professionals learned to think like marketers.
Training Industry Magazine
If we train and have no way of knowing if people are learning, we may waste a lot of time. Many trainers may place assessment at the end of their training programs to give them an "overall picture" of the lesson or process, but if you wait until a particular module or program is completed in order to collect feedback, it may be too late. The time for a learner to ask a really great question might be gone. At that point, the learner may be confused or so far behind that he or she needs clarifications, reviews or even retraining.
Imagine gentle nudges coming to your employees. A text message. A collaborative system note (perhaps on Jive, Slack or Yammer). An audio whisper from Alexa or a ping from Siri on an Apple Watch. A projected phrase appearing on the dashboard of a vehicle. The nudge is never coercive, angry, manipulative or judgmental. The nudge is a prod or reminder to pay attention or to complete a task.
The survey results from the City & Guilds Group report point to a larger tension between workers' and employers' attitudes toward L&D. Employees want training opportunities, but employers do not want to pay for them. Employers should reconsider their position, according to Ellie Bertani, director of HR strategy and innovation at Walmart. "I believe business needs to stop looking at employees as a cost center and realize they are an investment. Training them is an investment that will pay dividends in the future," she previously told HR Dive.
Training Industry Magazine
As a learning professional with over 20 years in the field, I can honestly say that one of the most challenging questions to answer is, "How do we know it worked?" This age-old question is an important topic. Every great learning design begins with performance goals and objectives. After all, if you don't know what you are trying to achieve, how will you know you achieved it? While we know that the best practice is to make these goals measurable, we need to be sure to tie them to business outcomes.
