TLNT Webinar: 4 Essential Social Learning Trends
According to the latest industry report from Training magazine, total expenditures in training are on the rise. The amount spent on training jumped about 13% from 2010, including increases in overall training budgets and payroll, and spending on outside products and services.
With organizations spending more toward training, it only makes sense they will want to know how to create more engagement and learning retention (aka “value”) within training programs. And an important and exciting emerging component is social learning.
Social Learning has been a hot topic of conversation for many organizations lately. How can you train your employees to learn important skills without having to reinvent the wheel every time? How can you create a database or network of shared knowledge where your employees can easily and efficiently learn from one other? Furthermore, is it possible to make the process entertaining and increase motivation through social collaboration and the implementation of learning based games?
Join us for this exciting discussion about what social learning is, how it can be incorporated into training programs, what effect social collaboration has on motivation, and what place gamification can play in the future of learning.
