The total learning system: Discovery, productivity and skills

How did you learn how to do your job? How do you solve a problem when you get stuck? Where do you go for the knowledge you need to advance your career?

In our new whitepaper, four Brightwave experts including CEO Charles Gould answer these questions by describing the core components of the total learning system. Critical to this new system of learning is the realisation that today’s worker finds ways of discovering the skills and information vital to their role without formal learning interventions.

The total learning system encompasses social, informal and ‘traditional’ e-learning in one comprehensive approach, going far beyond the simple learning management systems that have become the default mode for learning provision over the last decade.

This paper is written for L&D professionals and managers who are passionate about improving skills, knowledge and productivity in the workplace and recognise the current opportunity to greatly improve the way this is achieved.
