Bobby Butler, a contributor for TrainingIndustry.com, writes: "The problems inherent in using traditional instructor-led training today are pervasive and impact all stakeholders.

EdSource Today
Gov. Jerry Brown's call to create regional consortia of school districts and community colleges to administer adult education programs starting in 2015-2016 is meeting resistance from education leaders in the Assembly.

Talent management ROI (ridiculously overwrought insecurity)
HR Examiner
Marc Effron, a contributor for HR Examiner, writes: "At a recent Talent Management in Financial Services breakfast, a participant stated that having better return on investment metrics would help to prove talent management's value. Unfortunately, my literal response was, 'Those who worry about talent management ROI are insecure HR leaders who feel the need to justify their existence.' While perhaps lacking nuance, my comment highlighted the needless distraction and effort spent trying to justify talent management's value."

Adult learning not a priority but why not?
The Huffington Post
Jane Scott Paul, chief executive of the AAT, writes; "Adult Learners' Week, May 18-24 celebrates those learners that have taken the plunge back into education at a later stage in life. Every year, I read in awe the success stories of those who embrace learning as an adult.

Executive training is on the rebound, but it's a different beast now
The Globe and Mail
