We face today with uncertainty and volatile work environments. Workers have to emotionally adjust to new remote conditions and rapid changes in work expectations or learning static content. The usual information-dump method - does not help better performance or empower workers to face today's challenges. Furthermore, the platforms that support this method are restrictive and confining Thus learners’ learning quickly becomes irrelevant to the business demands.  For example, as we remotely train about policies, products, skills and processes and compliance topics, the "content and knowledge only" type of learning is no longer sufficient.
What is needed is a design process and learning platforms that enable learners to think through the issues, and find and apply the right answers immediately. They need to learn more by assessing their environments and creatively find the answers that are needed. They must sharpen their abilities to use both their own and other people's experiences to be more responsive.
The session will cover the following:
  • Why are traditional content and knowledge-only learning no longer sufficient for today's work environment?
  • What studies and science results reveal about how to help learners learn during these uncertain times?
  • What is experience-based learning?
  • What is the 5-step process of creating and designing experience-based learning?
  • What tools, software and platforms are affordable and easy to use? How do you select which one matches your needs and culture?
  • What do you need to do to add "experience learning" to your existing content and platform?
