Transversal competencies are not solely developed by participating in online courses or classroom trainings, since transfer of acquired knowledge into practice is not ensured. Embedding learning activities into the employees’ everyday working processes and social interactions is crucial for the long-term success of workplace learning. Learning in social groups towards common goals, and providing and receiving feedback from peers is a new trend in corporate training.
IMC has designed and developed a social learning tool in which interactions such as meetings, collaborations or informal learning activities can be manually captured. The tool is called the Social Learning Tool. It aids in delivering social and informal learning activities, the peer assessment of these learning activities, and the capture of workplace social interactions. The tool is currently being integrated with the main PLE to aid employees in understanding their competencies and the strength of their workplace social network.
The project team therefore develops and integrates a Social Learning Tool which facilitates self-directed informal learning and competency development supported by a learning community. An extended demo was presented during the meeting.
