Stop trying to sell training to the business
Kirkpatrick Partners
On a Monday afternoon about a decade ago, Wendy Kirkpatrick, at the time an energetic training manager for a manufacturing company, called a sales manager. She was hoping that he would be interested in holding a soft skills training class for his team of salespeople. When he answered the phone, he seemed distracted. Wendy asked if she had interrupted anything. Here is what he said.

Adult education a forgotten gift
Liberty Voice
In a world where outsourcing has become a greater trend for companies and where adults who have, up until now, not seen any need to get their high school diplomas, adult education has become a forgotten gift for many, until they make that decision to return to school, that is. A Google search for "high school education adult" resulted in 130 million hits, with the first page of those offering a multitude of choices for those adults who have wondered about the feasibility of returning to high school. The decision to return to school, at any level, is a difficult one, and for those adults who left high school the first time for any number of reasons, the thought of returning to high school after what could be years away may prove particularly daunting.

Your path to adult ed and career development
The Des Moines Register
College and university enrollment is bursting at the seams across the country, aided in no small part by the rise in adult learners, who are fueling a surge in adult-focused professional schools, increased programming at community colleges, and more flexible programs and class scheduling at universities. Adult learners — often called nontraditional students, or nontrads — are defined not only by age, but by life circumstances: employment status, marital and family responsibilities, military experience, displacement due to layoffs or industry shifts, first-time college students, and the list goes on. These days, when the traditional student goes straight to college after high school, she's likely to be seated next to an Iraq veteran who is also a mother 10 years her senior, with children at home and continuing military responsibilities.

Self-motivated participation in learning activities increases the well-being of adults
Phys.org
Non-vocational adult education drawing on a person's own motivation comes with a variety of benefits that are also reflected on the person's close friends, family and work. Studying boosts self-confidence and well-being, and expands social networks. Furthermore, motivation to pursue other studies also increases. Thanks to participation in adult education, tolerance towards and confidence in other people grows, and adult learners pay increasing attention to their health. Parents are better able to support the studying of their school-aged children.

Modernizing learning: How to overcome barriers to change
Training Zone
Change is all around us. Technology has changed, the way people work has changed and people’s expectations of work have changed. This change represents a huge opportunity for L&D professionals. It enables us to bring new ways of learning into the business. But there are challenges to modernizing our learning strategies. Clearly, if we are thinking about doing things differently, it's going to cost. And what about the skills of the learning and development function? Are we equipped to be able to deal with this? What about the kind of the attitudes then of people who aren't used to us responding in a new way?

How do we get employees to mentor?
Workforce
What do we do when experienced employees don't want to mentor fresh blood? Specializing in products for which experienced talent is hard to recruit, my company has to focus a lot on developing new talent and training them on the technical skills to build a critical talent pipeline. Because of the overall economic volatility, the employees feel insecure of losing what they have. We have found out through exit interviews that young talent is leaving us because they receive little help and training from their seniors. We suspect fear of losing their current position is the reason. What do we do?

Sustaining training's impact
Training Industry
Time plays a key role in business. It has a meaningful impact on how corporate training programs are developed, whether it's the speed of delivery, the length of the program, the time the learner interacts with the materials, the time the behavior is demonstrated by the employee after the training, or the introduction of tools and technologies that can get information to learners quickly.

Report card: Gamification in learning (what works?)
Learning Solutions Magazine
Gamification applied to learning is receiving a lot of attention these days, and corporate learning teams are being tasked with identifying how best to incorporate it into their learning strategies. At its simplest, gamification is the process of making non-game activities more fun and engaging. Karl Kapp, a respected expert on the convergence of learning and technology, defines gamification as "a careful and considered application of game thinking to solving problems and encouraging learning, using all the elements of games that are appropriate."

Administrate
Teaching is a form of public speaking and should be practised, especially if you are new at it! Public speaking is often something that people get nervous about, but like any skill, with practice you'll become much more comfortable. As you prepare for your training session and speaking in public, it's helpful to remember to follow the "7 Cs" of Communication.
