Organizational learning is evolving as expectations and technologies present new opportunities and new challenges.

Training and Development professionals must adopt an inclusive approach to learning to meet organizational and individual needs. Organizational leaders and employees expect on-demand learning opportunities that are accessible when and where employees need them.

Technology has created new opportunities – along with new challenges. Next-generation learning has arrived, and it is more self-directed than ever before.

Organizational learning professionals leverage the learning ecosystem to meet the needs of the organization and employees. The learning ecosystem includes:

  • Social learning, where subject matter experts evolve and share their knowledge
  • Employee access to video learning modules to find the information they need, when they need it
  • Integrated learning management systems (LMS) that provide and track learning activities
    • Adding xAPI into the mix provides even more leverage as it captures micro-learning behaviors such as reading an e-book or article, face-timing with a subject matter expert or chatting with a mentor
  • Developing serious games to engage learners and enhance learning
  • Mobile apps to enhance access to learning
  • Interactive, in-person training sessions that lead to positive, meaningful, and lasting results

With all of these options, it’s difficult to know where to start. Learning and Development: Engaging a Multi-Generational Workforce clears the way by providing an easy to use model for success.
