Changing Learner Behaviour with Emerald Works
Changing learner behaviour emerged as a key area of interest for L&D Leaders in our recent State of Learning Report. As learners continue to adapt and change, L&D’s perceptions of when and where learning is happening are struggling to keep pace.
In a recent report, Emerald Works found only 26% of L&D professionals think self-directed learning is a common occurrence within their organisation, yet 86% of learners report they are learning all the time in everyday work. These finding leads us to the following questions:
→ How do you support learning you can’t see?
→ How do you engage learners when they prefer to self-direct?
To help us explore some of questions, we spoke to Nahdia Khan, Head of Learning Community & Customer Voice at Emerald Works, accompanied by our very own Dan Fish, Head of Strategy at Go1. Catch-up on the recording below:
