Applying New Learning Technologies is Only Half of the Equation

Recently, I came across an article in E-learn Magazine which stated that companies are investing more than ever in corporate training and education. At the same time, in today’s complex, attention- and retention-challenged world, we've seen a shift away from traditional learning programs to corporate budgets and time being spent elsewhere.

So what exactly are companies investing in?

One area is new technologies that leverage strategies such as  Microlearning and Training Reinforcement. The other is an investment in a "culture of learning."

culture of learning is the idea that learning is not to be treated as a series of singular events, but rather as ongoing positive behaviour, embedded within an organization to help foster opportunities for further learning and to boost everyday performance. Whether you know it or not, your organization has a learning culture. The question is, are you driving it and maintaining it?

If any of this sounds new or intriguing to you, here are a few quick tips and ideas on how to apply both technologies and behavioural changes to improve the results of your training programs.
