The biggest hurdle in the way of organizations creating cultures of learning and innovation is the over emphasis on superstar trainers standing in the front of the room armed with content-heavy PowerPoint slide decks telling learners the important of the information and how to apply it to their jobs and life. This approach simply hasn’t proven effective at achieving the purpose of training - creating a behavioural change in employees which will result in business results.

We believe that there needs to be a shift in the mental mode and actions of our learning professionals. Moving from trainer-centric to learner-centric; from a focus on delivering content to creating learning environments; and from just consumption of vast information to creating the relevant information. The mindset shift needs to enable our learners to learn for themselves and help others learn. These forms of the core beliefs of the Accelerated Learning philosophy.

Workshop Objectives:
  • Discover a learning environment that inspires formal and informal learning and innovation.
  • Experience several Accelerated Learning activities that perfectly demonstrate learning as creation by the learners not consumption of information shared by the trainer.
  • Create your own Accelerated Learning blueprint for any one of your sessions and get group feedback.
