Which is better for your office?
According to Forbes, it’s expected that social learning will actually outperform remote learning in 2019.
A Bloomberg study about the two types of learning in the workplace says, “Social learning can take place in informal one-on-one encounters, among teams in the course of real-time problem-solving, communities of practice, through social software, expertise directories, and more.” About 50 percent of companies are already using social learning, the study says, with two-thirds planning to implement a similar strategy moving forward.
Through social learning, it’ll promote autonomy amongst coworkers to increase overall learning. It’s also nice to get away from the trend of online classes and remote activity. In fact, the Forbes article points to the fact that even in successful online classes, there are forums and discussion boards that allow for more social learning tactics to be employed.
