EasySIM® – Simulated Learning and Performance Cloud (SLPC) | Oct 01, 2019
Professionals acquire job-relevant skills differently than how they learn a theoretical or academic concept. Current studies on Andragogy (the method of teaching adult learners) show-
- Adults have a DIY mindset- they require maximum autonomy and minimum instructions for optimal learning outcome.
- Experience (including mistakes) are imperative to learning.
- Learning program need to be a mix of informative and immersive activities to drive cognitive engagement on the learner’s part.
- The knowledge acquired must be immediately applicable to their individual life or work situations.
- The learning activity must be problem-centered. That is, it must offer a solution to their existing, possibly recurring, problems.
According to a 2016 Gallup poll, around the globe, only 13% of employees are actually engaged in their training.
According to recent research on corporate training and eLearning suggests that only 12% of learners apply the skills from the training to the job; 62% managers believe they are not doing a good job meeting learner’s needs; and 1 out if every 3 employees say that uninspiring content is a barrier in their learning.
These statistics clearly reflect a disconnect between prevalent training practices and adult learning mechanism. Furthermore, it is becoming increasingly clear that employers no longer see satisfactory ROI from costly training programs that do not yield any significant improvement in job performance.
Aggregate of surveys reveal that employers as well as employees want training programs that are-
- Bite-sized micro units of learning- focused on job-critical skills and competencies
- Instant learning solutions- problem-centered and address existing key performance gaps.
- Immediately applicable- practice complex decision making in real work situations.
- Immersive experience- ensures Cognitive Engagement
Branched simulation learning solutions offer a perfect blend of problem-centered immersive micro learning experience. However, building an in-house, cost and time efficient branching simulation solution may be a daunting task.
