Time out for personal development
Training Journal
We all know that continuing professional development is important to our careers and our businesses. Budgets have been tight in recent years with investment reserved for only the priority requirements and individuals. Project budgets have had to be squeezed to find funding for anything else while the rest of us have to "make do and mend." Consequently, if you do find yourself with a few days of training, how do you ensure that you make the most of them? The challenge with open scheduled classroom training in particular is that it provides opium to the masses.

How sports coaching can inspire you to be an excellent trainer
Administrate
With the biggest football extravaganza on the planet coming to a close last weekend, there can't be a better time to talk about ambition, passion, success — and its dark twin — failure. While the world is obsessed with the players, we find it fitting to talk about the coaches who are leading the young participants, and have inspired and guided them to get to where they can play on the biggest stage fearlessly.

Cultural intelligence: What is it?
Business2Community
Cross-cultural skills are becoming more and more important to all businesses, whatever their size. In today's world it is likely that your staff will be called on to interact with people from other cultures, whether as clients, partners or co-workers. Of course, if your company is engaging with foreign markets, such skills are particularly important. The depth of your "cultural intelligence" can make or break business relationships.

e-Learning guild research: Basic skills gaps and our role
Learning Solutions Magazine
The e-Learning Guild's newest research report, Beyond ROI: The Value of Learning, explains that training ROI studies are flawed because they measure learning "events." But because we are continually learning at work we need to look for more holistic and contextual training impacts, such as through Robert O. Brinkerhoff's models.

Does all e-learning need to be mobile?
Training Zone
Mobile learning technology is fast evolving and it's now possible — and accepted — that users across all demographics will access mobile learning content on different devices; regardless of the generation to which they belong. Mobile learning, or mLearning, is changing the educational, personal and executive learning landscape and it requires a completely different approach to instructional design, graphic and user experience design and information presentation.

Is your training disconnected from the business?
Kirkpatrick Partners
Many training professionals pride themselves on conducting exciting training programs that engage learners and result in positive post-program evaluation feedback.

BYOD: Revisited
Training Industry
It sure seems like everyone continues talking about the Bring Your Own Device practice, these days. And why shouldn't they? BYOD not only promises improved worker productivity and flexibility, but also supporting and securing all the data that comes along with it. In other words, BYOD has the potential to transform the enterprise. The BYOD movement continues going mainstream, with reports from CompTIA and Cisco indicating that more than half of the companies surveyed by them, now permit employee-owned devices in the workplace. As a result, new companies are using BYOD as the foundation for their network infrastructure — giving employees the freedom to purchase and use their own mobile devices to access corporate data.

So you think you can educate adults?
EdSurge
So you think that edtech (and school reform in general) are full of buzzwords and hot new trends? Well, that may be true. But edtech's got nothing on adult education, which freely adopts jargon and innovation from the K-12 and postsecondary worlds and then adds its own particular set of terms and approaches. Indeed, adult education is experiencing a much-needed surge of interest from the innovation and entrepreneurial communities, according to experts, observers and providers. They hope that this interest will develop new human capital, improve outcomes and attract additional resources.

Why adults struggle to pick up new languages
LiveScience
Many adults struggle to learn a second language, but not for lack of effort — the problem may actually be that they're trying too hard, a new study suggests. Scientists have long suspected that adults' superior cognitive function might actually be a drawback in picking up a new language, giving kids the upper hand. In the new study, when adults were told to try to learn the proper sentence structure and grammar of a new language, the participants actually learned less than those who were not told they would have to take a quiz.
