This 60-minute webinar will explore recent findings from The Conference Board of Canada’s National Workplace Learning Survey including:
- Highlighting the types of informal learning activities and practices employees at varying levels engage in.
- Perceptions of the prevalence of informal learning in Canadian organizations from employees at varying levels and roles.
- The level of support for informal learning from senior organizational leaders.
- The relationship between workplace learning culture and the level of support and encouragement for informal learning.
- Investigating whether the rise of informal learning is the result of shortcomings in learning programs or whether it is emerging as a key element of learning strategies for Canadian organizations.
Dr. Carliner will also provide valuable insights into the survey findings, leveraging his expertise and research on informal learning.
