Employers need to wake up to the opportunities of digital learning according to the latest research from the Chartered Management Institute.
“Many employers need to rethink how they go about helping their managers learn new skills. Just dumping textbooks onto smartphones is a dumb way to upskill managers. Managers want personalised bite-size content, to share knowledge and learn from connected peer networks, to ask questions and get feedback in real time. Why? Because it’s now part of how we work and live” says CMI chief executive Ann Francke.
Digital learning has great potential but what are the issues we need to consider?
15 managers from across all sectors attended the first of the 2016 series of free CPD ‘END RESULT’ events hosted by ourselves at The Media Centre, Huddersfield on Wed 13th Jan.
Following an overview of the need for and the skills required by 21st century leaders, David Broadhead went on to present the key findings from the report with both presentations leading to much informed debate and discussion. This was followed by working demonstrations of CMI’s Management Direct by Jim Craig and the collaborative learning platform Noddlepod by Ollie Gardener, again leading to an informative discussion session.
Our next event is on Friday 4th March.
