Strategies for Successful Learning and Development Partnerships

Posted by Caveo Learning on August 28, 2018

At some point, all learning and development organizations are faced with the need for a learning partner—business objectives or performance gaps may demand L&D personnel and expertise that can’t be organically added in a timely or cost-efficient manner.

Large-scale partner arrangements are more common than many learning leaders realize, but so too are potential pitfalls. Learning leaders generally have a pretty solid idea of what they hope to get out of L&D services arrangements, but for a host of reasons, partnerships don’t always deliver on expectations. However, thoughtful planning, including asking the right questions as part of the careful evaluation of prospective partners, can go a long way toward ensuring a productive L&D partnership arrangement.

Here is a look at the motivations, challenges, opportunities, and benefits facing learning leaders when it comes to learning partner services, as well as what to consider before engaging with a learning partner.

Posted by Terry Goins with Star Fisher on August 16, 2018

Are you struggling to be creative? Do your eLearning courses seem uninspiring? If so, do not despair. You may be surprised at the number of instructional designers and trainers who lament their lack of creativity—especially when their businesses expect continuous innovation.

If you want to build creative learning activities, no matter what the medium—in-person, virtual instructor-led, or digital learning—first clarify your purpose for the activity. Ask: “What learning do I want the participants to achieve?” Start with the end goal in mind, or your creativity could miss its mark with recipients.

Learning that Crosses Borders

Posted by Renie McClay on June 20, 2018

Audiences are becoming more and more diverse. With varieties of native languages in the room, it is important to look at what is helpful as well as what may hinder or confuse when designing learning. You may be designing learning for a French-owned firm that needs to train English speakers. Or it may be a US-owned firm, with global customers and employees. It may be something specific like onboarding or selling skills in varying languages and with varying cultural references.

While you may have done instructional design for many years, an expanded definition of instructional design from a global view is the artistic ability to get the lesson across to any culture or in any language. Here are tips and suggestions to help accomplish objectives across a varied audience when designing or delivering training.

Bring Dry Training to Life with Characters, Conflict, and a Realistic Plot

Posted by Brian Ziemba on April 24, 2018

Training content on onboarding information, product knowledge, or processes can be inherently dry and hard to deliver in an engaging manner. But dry or not, this content is important for employees to learn about their workplace, the processes they need to follow, regulations they need to comply with, and changes or initiatives happening throughout the company. It’s up to the training department to deliver this content properly.

However, because this information often does not apply directly to everyday tasks, it’s difficult to train using performance-oriented learning methods. Therefore, before training on informational content, it’s important to consider the learners’ perspective, existing knowledge, and how motivated they are to learn the content.
