The book covers everything from the changing L&D landscape, 70-20-10, Neuroscience, Performance Support and Instructional Design and my favourite of all was Learning Impact.
If you are a learning professional and looking at way to address your current challenges the book will go a long way in helping you achieve that.
The author argues that workplace-based learning is undergoing a number of significant transformations:
• Isolated learning operation to one which is fully aligned with the business
• Course catalogue approach to multifaceted learning environments
• Isolated incidents of learning to a focus on continuous learning
• Formal class-based learning to a balance between formal, experiential and on-the-job
• Infrequent large chunks of learning to small granules delivered at the moment of need
• Management indifference and polite tolerance to enthusiastic embrace
After discussing the changing context for learning, the author moves on in the second part of the book to discuss new ideas for learning, including ways of measuring impact and recent developments in instructional design. The third part of the book covers such concepts as big data and learning analytics, neuroscience and learning, and trends in learning technology.
The book is probably more suited for reading by corporate learning specialists, rather than by a general audience. As a reader who is not a learning specialist, I was less interested in trends in the L & D profession and more interested in what the author had to say about measuring impact, instructional design, and technology for learning.
