Traditional learning is often structured so that it requires participants to spend hours at a time on classes and readings. Finding the time can be a challenge for busy library staff. To address this challenge, the upcoming Infopeople initiative, Building an Effective Learning Culture, will incorporate a “bite-sized learning” (also called microlearning) approach.
Most Infopeople online courses are structured so that an individual signs up, completes the course assignments, participates in discussions, and receives a certificate of completion at the end. However, for the upcoming Building an Effective Learning Culture (BELC) initiative, we’re asking people to sign up in teams of 3 – 5 people from a single library or library system. Why are we employing a team approach for this initiative? There are numerous benefits!
Here at Infopeople, we’re 100% focused on providing continuing education and professional development opportunities for library staff. It’s what we do! Every year we offer hundreds of training events for more than 5,000 people. We regularly and routinely ask those 5000 people for feedback regarding our courses, but we also ask them for feedback and insights about overall learning and training needs in libraries. It’s a huge opportunity for us to learn about workplace learning and what works… and what doesn’t.
