202 Foster a Learning Culture

11:15 AM - 12:15 PM Tuesday, November 15

A learning culture can provide the foundation for a successful, innovative, and healthy training program. But creating such a culture can seem a bit like herding cats. This session will provide a logical road map and guiding principles that have proved to be effective in growing a healthy learning culture. The session will include a practical exploration of the factors that contribute to a learning culture in every organization. Learn how to use variety and self-determination to foster a sense of autonomy. Learn how skill mapping and communication lend a sense of purpose to training materials and guide more meaningful learning paths. And learn how to leverage gamification to validate and guide individual and group training paths.
