Welcome Forward! I am excited to re-design our Learning TRENDS and eNotes newsletter into a combined email and blog, experimentally hosted on Substack, a new publishing platform. Elliott Masie’s eNotes will be short, mixed media bursts of text, audio, video and interaction. Let’s go…
Learning Questions as Workplaces Evolve:
Let’s ask ourselves, other learning colleagues and our learners a few of these questions, focusing on changes coming through the Pandemic:
Have Our Attention Spans Changed? Most virtual learning sessions have been much shorter than classroom durations. Many learners seemed to have maxed out at 50 minutes in an hour.
As Work Shifts to Hybrid, How Will Learning Shift? Many organizations will ask workers to spend 1, 2 or 3 days at work in the office and the rest of time working from home. How will that impact learning activity blends, scheduling and leaner motivation?
How Will We Value Virtual Learning Activities? Will the organization (and even the learners themselves) value a graduate of a online leadership program as equal to the traditional residential leadership academy?
Refreshing the Workforce - What Have They Forgotten? We know that pilots and flight attendants returning to airlines are going thru re-entry learning programs to refresh their skills and readiness. What skills, behaviors and processes will need to be rebooted or reshaped as workers evolve their work locations?
Watching Their Children Learn Virtually - What Did We Learn About Learning? What did we, as parents or relatives of children who were learning from home learn about learning? A great question to ask ourselves!
How Did We Shift TV/Movie/Internet Watching? Did we watch longer or shorter segments? Did we “marathon” our watching? Did we experiment with “TikTok” or “ClubHouse”?
How Are Our Careers in Learning Evolving? How has the Pandemic impacted our skills, motivations and career aspirations, as learning professionals? What do we want to learn ourselves, now?
I would love to add a few of your questions to this list.
In the weeks ahead, we will be announcing our “Learning Festivals”, hosting new Empathy Concerts and releasing video segments on Hybrid Work & Learning.
Yours in Learning,
