Workplaces, work and workers are changing fast. Those of us riding along in the Internet age will realize that our learning habits are evolving; employees are no longer reliant on enterprise training for their learning and performance needs. Modern workplace learning therefore does not just mean providing modern training, but also supporting individuals and managers to learn from their daily work as well as empowering individuals to take more responsibility for their continuous self-improvement and self-development at work. How can we move beyond the confines of the traditional paradigm of ‘training’? What do all these mean for the transformation of learning and performance design and practices?
