209 Building a Habit of Daily Learning
1:00 PM - 2:00 PM Tuesday, March 26
The majority of what people learn comes from practical experience on the job. However, they don’t learn everything they need just by doing their jobs. You have to be ready for exceptions when they arise. Learners need reinforcement of important topics to help avoid bad habits. They look for opportunities to expand their knowledge and skills beyond their current roles to further their careers. Unfortunately, with limited time and competing priorities, employees often are unable to make continuous, targeted learning part of their work.
In this session, you’ll look in-depth at how to embed targeted learning activities into the daily workplace experience. You’ll learn tactics for applying common learning science techniques, including interval reinforcement and retrieval practice, to drive long-term knowledge retention. You’ll see how you can use familiar tools to promote the habit of daily learning. You’ll hear stories from organizations that are realizing measurable business results by helping their employees dedicate just five minutes per day to their professional development.
In this session, you will learn:
- How to identify brief moments for daily learning in the average employee’s day
- How to apply learning science techniques to promote knowledge retention
- How to enable managers to support daily learning activities
- How to motivate and enable employees to build their daily learning habits
Designers, managers, and senior leaders (directors, VP, CLO, executive, etc.)
