The modern world of work has become a learning space; the workplace is our classroom. The workplace learning we engage with is no longer a single event with a sole focus. Life is the lesson, and our learning is ongoing, holistic and social.
It all started with a caveman’s drawing on a cave wall. Ever since, our natural human instinct has been to connect, share and discuss our experiences. From birth, we learn from our surroundings; from our relationships, by collaborating with others and by seeking advice. We observe, we think and we enact. By sharing information and ideas in debate and in discussion, we learn and develop. We’re all familiar with the concept of social learning. The 70/20/10 model shows clearly how it is fundamental to our growth, both personally and professionally.
