The L&D industry is really good at predictions – take your pick – there are many of them being shared across the usual channels.
Last year we saw predictions around new models for learning – with a move away from centralised learning provision to a more learner-driven approach. And it’s been interesting to watch the gravitational pull towards “self-directed learning” as the data-driven realities around the need for learning enablement rather than learning creation hit home.
At Lumesse we have been extremely fascinated at the feedback on our me:time platform – a platform that enables self-directed learning, putting learners in control. It’s also interesting to hear from the organisations who are reviewing me:time who don’t just see this as an alternative approach to learning enablement but as an employee benefit.
So on reading the latest Bersin predictions, it occurred to me that the first six anticipated trends have already been influencing our thinking around the design of me:time and the reasons why we feel that now is the right time for a different approach to learning.
