As promised, I’m republishing this post with the link to the March article in the “How Adults Learn” series from Convene.
As younger generations become adults (hello, gen Y), the way adults collectively learn changes. For instance, those generations who came before the invention of the personal computer don’t need as much technological interaction as those who came after.
PCMA has published, in Convene, a fascinating update of their special issue “How Adults Learn” from nearly seven years ago. The series, titled “How Adults Learn, Now”, advocates the increased integration of technology into meetings, as well as adding informal learning environments, such as mentoring programs.
You can find these articles in the online PCMA Convene archives, or by following the below links.
