Creating a Learning Network:
The Power of Peer Learning
Presented by: Consuelo Adkins
Have you ever felt stretched thin due to the volume of requests for training and development? Do you tend of think of learning and development based on available course offerings?
Development professionals often find themselves with high demand for learning opportunities, yet limited resources to deliver on that demand. This is especially true when our focus is formal learning programs.
The 70-20-10 principle teaches that 90% of development comes through informal means such as experience (70%) and relationships (20%). This session will examine 20% learning opportunities through peer learning, a resource which takes pressure away from learning professionals, by giving colleagues an opportunity to share their knowledge, perspectives, and experience.
As a participant, you will:
Define peer learning as it pertains to your organization’s culture
Identify opportunities to apply peer learning in your organizational environment
Explore solutions that will allow you to leverage peer learning as a resource
