#GuildChat for 10/14/16: Learning in Our Work

Our next #GuildChat takes place Friday, October 14th at 11AM PT/2PM ET. This week we’re discussing learning in our work

There are many ways to look at workflow learning. From a formal learning vantage point it would appear to be about bringing learning content closer to the point of work. Some examples can include performance support and micro-learning. Another side of it is the learning we gain from doing our work, the informal learning through ah-ha moments and repetition leads to greater understanding. Reflection on the tasks as they complete as well as conversations with others helps build deeper understanding.


In this week’s #GuildChat we will explore together what workflow learning looks in various contexts. We will discuss the role of the individual in their own learning process as well as the role of learning professionals in supporting both formal learning approaches and informal ones.

Join us this week on #GuildChat to hear what others are doing in their efforts to support learning in the work and expand your understanding.
