For most of us who finished their school and university education at the end of the last century, we have distant memories of a classroom and a teacher standing in the middle of it writing down algebra equations on the black/white board or feeding hard-to-remember history lessons into our brains.
But in the last 10 years, the scenario has changed and learning methods have much evolved.
Student-centric learning: We have moved from a traditional classroom approach where the teacher was the centre of attention to a more student-centred type of learning. Today, teacher has become a facilitator and the learner has become much more involved in the learning process.
Abundance of knowledge: We no longer follow the conservative approach where the teacher was the sole holder and imparter of knowledge. Today, thanks to the Internet, we live in a world where knowledge is hyper-abundant. So a teacher’s job is to help learners sift through the vast pools of knowledge and take in what’s relevant to them.
Social learning opportunities: We have also realised that the teacher may not be the only force behind our motivation and learning opportunities. With the proliferation of mobile technologies and social media, we are creating new information every second. We create content on the move, share it, revise it and discuss in social forums providing a whole range of social learning opportunities to people.
With the all-consuming demands of their work and social life, learners no longer want to confine themselves to traditional classroom teaching. They want ready-to-use tools and easily accessible and highly personalized training solutions for their personal growth and goals.
At Cegos, we understand the needs of learners for short and easy to understand individualized training sessions that they can access whenever they get a learning window within the working day. Hence, we have created high-impact instructor-led learning modules taking a fraction of the time and costs associated with traditional training methods that can be easily accommodated anytime that best suits your organisation’s needs.
