Moving Beyond E-Learning: A Workshop with Jane Hart

The Professional Association for  Computer Training is excited to welcome global thought leader, Jane Hart of the Centre for Learning & Performance Technologies, for rare one-day workshop opportunity!

Objectives

  • Review the need for moving beyond classroom training and 1st generation e-learning
  • Consider the new opportunities it offers to enable and support learning in new ways
  • Compare the two roles of (traditional) learning manager and (new) learning consultant
  • Build a plan for broadening the scope of the work in your own L&D team or that of your client

Workshop Detail

The way we learn in the workplace is changing; in large part influenced by the way we learn on the Web. Organizations at the leading edge are now modernizing their approach to workplace learning, and moving beyond creating and managing e-learning, towards addressing performance problems in more relevant ways as well as promoting, developing and supporting continuous learning. In this workshop Jane will take you on a tour of the new initiatives that are taking place in organizations in order to enable and support learning in new ways. Bring your laptops or tablet along as the workshop will be highly participative.
