July: Learning & Supporting @ the Point of Work

The learning environment is evolving. Design and delivery methods are being pushed to expand scope and head downstream into the post-training work context where this convergence manifests in workflows. Informal learning becomes critical, and is shrinking to meet the demands of just-enough-just-in-time-just-for-me. This expanded learning environment is loaded with interdependencies and is requiring us to treat it as a dynamic learning ecosystem. Deeper discovery that drives design, development and delivery decisions must be accomplished to address an edge-to-edge continuous learning environment.
Effectively implementing learning and performer support edge-to-edge exceeds the limits of classroom and on-line training venues. The ecosystem approach suggests there is a continuum of learning supported embedded within our solutions. This session examines a framework called the PDR Learning Continuum that serves as an overlay to the ecosystem concept and integrates learning and support @ the point of work.
