Some research suggests that up to 80 percent of learning in the workplace occurs on an informal basis. Yet, most corporations spend more than 80 percent of their training budget and effort on formal training. This highly interactive webinar will address the issues and methodologies surrounding understanding and effectively delivering informal learning, including e-communities (forums and synchronous environments) and electronic performance support systems (EPSS). See how some emerging and nontraditional methods are stepping up to fill this much needed training opportunity.
In this session you will learn to:
• Integrate informal learning techniques into existing learning models.
• Recognize the types of learners that are best served by informal learning and plan programs accordingly.
• Obtain the buy-in for informal learning
• Recognize the tools used to create effective informal learning environments
