This is a three part article based research and on evidence from organisations that shows today’s learners are different. For many organisations there is a real need to address the characteristics of the changing workforce. It is no longer possible to think workers have the same approach to life, work, or learning as their bosses.
- Part One looks at what the research tells us about the characteristics of today’s learners (aka Learners 2.0), and how they best learn.
- Part Two reports on interviews with eLearning Guild members on how they perceive learners today, and how they are addressing their needs.
- Part Three looks at the importance for learning and development professionals to experience being a Learner 2.0 in order to advise on appropriate new learning approaches.
