From Traditional Training to Modern Workplace Learning: A Framework

Modern Workplace Learning involves two strands of work as shown on the graphic below

  1. MODERN TRAINING: Providing a flow of resources and activities (where appropriate)
  2. MODERN LEARNING: Supporting self-organised and self-managed learning

Whilst some L&D teams will be content to tweak the traditional training model by developing modern content and training, other L&D teams will want to go further than this and build and support the modern learning skills necessary for their people to become self-reliant and take charge of their own self-learning.

Building the bridge to self-learning and self-reliance is therefore likely to be a 2-step process in most organisations – but it is ONLY the second step that will make the real difference. It is also the most difficult step for L&D to take as it requires them to have  completely new skillset themselves and the confidence to relinquish control and take on a more enabling and supporting role

So what do the two strands: MODERN TRAINING and MODERN LEARNING mean in practice for L&D? We’ll take a closer look in the next few pages.
