Learning Agility

Learning Agility

Achieving learning agility is essential to combat trends and changes in an age of disruption. The future inevitably withholds a plethora of opportunity and fluidity, meaning it is essential for us to keep up with shifts in the modern learning world.

Luckily for us, modern and effective learning approaches are not as futuristic and alien-like as they seem. Contemporary approaches are already existent, such as the shift of learning into mobile-based formats.

There are various techniques to develop learning agility and prepare you for your corporate future. We have rounded up three of the best.

1. Brain-Based Learning Agility

Microlearning is a prime example of the evolution of learning, whereby training is prepared in small modules, coined microlessons. The adoption of microlearning ensures the consistent movement with the times, avoiding the risk of being left behind. This is achieved through users’ ability to be able to edit and adjust content from one central, cloud-based system, immediately accessible to learners at their fingertips. In other words, learning has never been easier.

Companies are able to seamlessly integrate their unique content in engaging and responsive templates available from good authoring tools, like SC Training (formerly EdApp). SC Training (formerly EdApp) utilises spaced repetition, encompassing the release of information in short bursts for the learner’s maximum absorption and retention of new knowledge. The overall objective of spaced repetition is to follow an interval strategy so that learners can recall knowledge in times of need.

2. Learning Agility and a Growth Mindset

Remaining curious when learning is pivotal for the encouragement of situational exploration. Experimental learning assists in finding multiple solutions to the challenges presented before learners. Cultivating a curious mindset requires learners to be vulnerable and practice openness. It also calls for holding questions and being mindful of surroundings, practicing child-like curiosity.

3. Learning Agility: Learn to Unlearn

Finding information we already deem to be accurate or true is referred to as ‘confirmation bias’. Our tendency to search for information which reinforces our current perspectives, values or beliefs is ineffective in the absorption and development of new knowledge in our long-term memories. The inability to unlearn can often result in companies falling off the bandwagon in the age of disruption, due to them being in denial of an ever changing reality.

The time to adopt a modern, forward-thinking approach to learning is now. The rate of technological advancements are becoming increasingly rapid, calling for flexible and modern ways to educate learners in various roles and industries.
