Workflow Learning: Designing for all 5 Moments of Need™
Did you know that within the first 48 hours of your employees attending a traditional training or learning event, their knowledge retention drops to 33 percent? So why are training departments still spending the vast majority of their budgets on formal training efforts? Everyday L&D is being pressured more and more to show a return on investment for the money spent in “training”. Workflow Learning and designing for the 5 Moments of Need can help us move into the workflow and measure impact in ways training alone can never do. It also has a profound effect on training events, often reducing them by up to half the time needed, while making them even more impactful.
This session will address the methodologies behind workflow learning (designing for learning while doing), and how it can help us have a different level of conversation with those we serve and help us influence the effectiveness of the business in remarkable ways!
In the session you will learn:
- What are the 5 Moments of Learning Need;
- What is Workflow Learning: Methodologies and concepts;
- What does Workflow Learning look like when designing a 5 Moments of Need solution
- What are the design considerations when integrating Workflow Learning into an existing learning approach
