Learning 4 Learning Professionals

Conventional wisdom says that people can self-provision their learning and professional development through internet-enabled access to resources and social networks. But studies indicate that employees are not necessarily skilled at managing their own professional development and leveraging digital tools for learning. With an abundance of resources available, people may become paralyzed by too much information and too many choices.

Drawing on theory and research related to learner motivation and self-directed learning, this interactive session will provide actionable advice on how to foster a learning culture in the digital age. We’ll discuss the pillars of self-directed learning that influence people’s ability to manage their own development. And we’ll discuss the inherent tension when a need for deep knowledge and skill is met with superficial or inaccurate resources and insufficient time for learning. We’ll identify new roles for managers and learning leaders that will enable you to foster a learning culture in your organization.
