Finding New Ways To Connect Learners The workforce is still adjusting to the new reality of a changing workplace. Many employees continue to work remotely, or on a hybrid schedule. This further complicates employee collaboration, especially as it relates to learning and development. No matter where an employee starts or ends their workday, the ongoing need for person-to-person collaboration is essential for the organization’s success. Adapting learning and development programs to serve this new workforce is not without its challenges. The creation of engaging learning experiences is no longer a top-down structure, as many employees are choosing to have a say in the process. Individual learners are increasingly creating their own learning content to offer their personal knowledge and experience on how to be successful in their respective roles. Leveraging peer-to-peer learning for all employees requires a modern learning solution that can connect learners despite distance and can accommodate custom content that is highly personalized to the organization. Helping learners find the help they need quickly and contribute to the conversation is an excellent way to boost collaborative learning efforts within the organization. In this eBook, we focus on a few ways to boost collaborative learning programs. Topics include: Responding to Workplace Culture Changes Connecting Mentors to Learners Peer-to-Peer Learning Real-time Collaboration Learning Tech Flexibility in Teams
