Learning in the Workplace

Learning in the Workplace
“There is no end to education. It is not that you read a book, pass an examination, and finish with education. The whole of life, from the moment you are born to the moment you die, is a process of learning.”
Jiddu Krishnamurti

Well now we have that sorted, and understand we will be learning our whole lives,how do you help adults to learn? Starting with learning styles is a good step.

Basically there are 4 ways to learn – depending on which google article you click on.

Visual, Auditory, Read/Write, and Kinaesthetic (touch).

While most of us may have some general idea about how we learn best, often we need new information delivered to us in more than one wayto embed change in our practice.

So how can you support learning in the workplace?

1.    Make learning so needed in a person’s role they can’t ignore it.

2.    Provide opportunities with responsibility to go and seek your own answers.

3.    Take learning to the learner, make it accessible and convenient, and offer a variety of dates, times and methods.

4.    Use a variety of learning styles to impart knowledge and change

5.    Make each person count and feel relevant

6.    Offer regular constructive feedback

7.    Reward learning; this can be tricky, how one person feels rewarded is different to the next so have a variety of ‘awards’ on offer.
