Classroom training can seem like a real treat. Especially when we consider that more than 3 quarters of people haven’t attended a course in the last two years. But if they’re not attending courses (even if they like them), then how are they developing themselves? If they are like you and I they are likely to be self-directing their own learning. Web-searching when situations arise or asking a colleague. In that respect, ‘learning’ is wedded to the work itself – on a ‘grab-and-go’ basis. The real learning occurs in the act of applying the new knowledge or know-how and the immediate feedback (did it go well or did it not?!). They are likely to have trusted their online publishers and blogs, as well as social media, to keep up-to-date, and good old (audio / e-) books.
