Uncover how learning in the flow of work is more relevant and applicable to solving the challenges employees in the modern workforce comes across everyday.

Time is our most valuable commodity – problem is, we don’t seem to have enough of it.

And this is not lost in the world of workplace learning.

Asked how workplace learning could be improved by LinkedIn in a recent study of more than 4,000 L&D and business professionals, their top challenge was simply that they don’t have enough time to complete their learning at work. Among learners responding to the survey, 58% of them want to learn at their own pace and almost half (49%) want learning opportunities in the flow of work.  

The average employee has only 24 minutes a week for formal learning, according to research by learning and talent guru Josh Bersin. Based on these insights, it’s clear there’s a healthy appetite for learning, but because people just don’t have the time, it must be served in a way that’s informal and in the flow of work to be successful.

‘Learning in the flow of work,’ a concept develop by Bersin, is learning in which it is discoverable by employees at the point they need it and delivered in smaller, easily-digestible chunks – on demand. These learning snippets have proven to be more relevant and more applicable to solving issues throughout and employee’s day-to-day challenges, and more easily retained than larger chunks of formal learning.

Modern learning platforms make it easy for L&D administrators to serve these coveted bite-sized learning opportunities. They’re able to provide employees with opportunities to learning in the flow of work by establishing custom and centralized learning to facilitate bite-sized learning on demand, encourage peer support, provide regular coaching and mentoring opportunities, strategic content curation and, overall, an improved learning experience.

There’s also the mechanisms necessary to monitor learner behaviour and how they interact with the learning content they’re delivered. Based on that data, learning administrators are able to make strategic interventions to provide intelligence-driven content suggestions to their learners, make better decisions related to adapting learning so better suit the individual needs of their learners and encourage more intelligence conversations among them.

Join Docebo’s Gloria Castillo, Marketing Specialist, as she discusses strategies to integrate learning into the flow of work with your learning platform.

The webinar, presented by Docebo in partnership with TrainingZone, is scheduled for July 23 at 11 am EST. Discussion topics will include:

  • Using learning technology to deliver micro and macro learning content.
  • The difference between micro and macro learning content (and how adaptive learning platforms make delivering the two concepts separately a reality)
  • Making learning relevant to employees by delivering it on the job, at the point of need
  • And how Artificial Intelligence will bolster the abilities of learning platforms/learning experience platforms to eliminate administrative tasks (i.e.: content suggestion, etc.) to make learning in the flow of work more seamless, efficient, and effective.
