404 Learning and Performance Ecosystems: Building Learning into the Workflow
10:45 AM - 11:45 AM Thursday, October 1
In recent years, learning has moved closer to the workplace. Classrooms have moved out of corporate learning centers and into training rooms co-located with offices. Online learning is delivered directly to the desktop more than ever before. The next challenge is to move learning directly into the workflow. To do this, we need to move beyond course delivery and into a broader, more comprehensive, and strategic approach that focuses not just on learning, but on performance and productivity.
In this session, you will learn the six key components of a learning and performance ecosystem and see examples of how they can be applied in dozens of combinations to create learning and performance solutions. You will work through a sample scenario with your peers to analyze a problem and brainstorm a multifaceted solution that takes full advantage of the learning and performance ecosystem. You will learn a practical approach to getting started with learning and performance ecosystem solution design.
In this session, you will learn:
- How to describe a learning and performance ecosystem
- How to identify an opportunity for an ecosystem solution
- How to work with stakeholders and experts to define and prioritize factors that contribute to the problem
- How to identify the best way to measure success
- How to identify ecosystem components available to you
- How to apply components to create a solution
