Training Industry    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
As the world's economic woes continue, travel budgets are coming under increasing scrutiny, and the desire for virtual training is growing. However, "virtual training" encompasses so many types of learning from self-directed education, through computer-based self-paced e-training, via webinars to fully-functional "virtual classroom"-type activities. And this is only the first problem facing those choosing training providers. With these options, the customer has a good idea of the basic experience: will it be interactive, will the learner need to be at their desk at certain times of day, is someone available to answer questions when something isn't understood?

Are you ready to be a lifelong learner?
Deccan Herald    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
We are now in an era where schools have to move from teaching facts to teaching how to "learn to learn." More than ever before, we now need to be prepared to learn all our lives. Technology, globalization and job markets are continuously evolving at such a fast pace that students passing out of college have to be critical thinkers. Are our students equipped to do so? Well, for students to be able to learn to learn, their teachers have to evolve with the times too. Our teachers have stuck to the same teaching methods for generations and by far, the most popular teaching style in colleges is the "lecture." Mark Twain once commented on the education style of his times and said, "College is a place where a professor's lecture notes go straight to the students' lecture notes without passing through the brains of either."

Then I ask one of the cornerstone questions that sets up the rest of the program: 'How many people here lose or misplace their keys regularly?' The hands go up. This may not seem like such a profound question, but it does reveal fundamental weaknesses in people's habits." More
