Using IACET Accreditation as a marketing strategy
Amy Hyams, EdD
There are so many intrinsic reasons that organizations have for obtaining and maintaining IACET Accreditation and their AP status. Many talk about "ensuring quality" and having validation that they have quality learning programs. Some indicate that the IACET Accreditation gives them recognition in their industry, or allows students to earn CEUs.

Lifelong learning: The only way to keep up
Training Zone
Lifelong learning is a subject dear to me. One of my heroes is Johnny 5, star of Short Circuit, a 1986 film about an intelligent robot. He demands input — "give me input" — what better way to live? The 21st century gives us both a challenge and an opportunity to produce and digest information. The pace of change is increasing rapidly. More data will be stored in the cloud in the next two years than exists anywhere today. The explosion of information, the panorama of possibilities is breathtaking.

How to make workplace training more fun
Administrate
Workplace training is a great chance for all involved to develop their knowledge and skills in a way that will benefit what they do every day at work. Unfortunately, not everyone views workplace training in this way, as some can see it as education being forced on them, and therefore boring! Employees can also dislike being taken away from their everyday work to complete training, as they might be very busy or have important things to deal with.

Flipping the corporate learning model
Training Industry
It's often tempting to ask why the traditional corporate training classroom environment hasn't changed in centuries — a traditional model of students at desks with an expert imparting knowledge (an industry standard). But is this environment effective? When is the last time one truly learned something sitting in a classroom, listening for hours? Despite evidence that this old-school approach to training doesn't work, it continues to be the standard for most corporations. But as firms require employees do more with less, it's even more imperative that workers be properly trained from the beginning to avoid losing productive work time, and ultimately becoming frustrated and ineffective.

Will executives get on the MOOC train, too?
The Wall Street Journal
Companies are expressing growing interest in using massive, open, online courses in their corporate training initiatives for rank-and-file workers, the Journal reports today. But winning over executives, who are accustomed to concierge services and in-person hobnobbing, might be a tougher feat for MOOC providers. Many companies still shell out thousands of dollars for high-potential managers and C-suite leaders to attend days-long sessions at elite business schools, or to have faculty come on-site for custom programs that address industry- or firm-specific issues.

The future of higher education
Inside Higher Ed
With a number of leading for-profits beset by legal and financial woes, enrollment in online education leveling off, and MOOCs off the front pages, one might reasonably conclude that the threats to higher ed posed by what was hailed as "disruptive innovation" have abated. No so. At this point, institutions are disrupting themselves from the inside out, not waiting for the sky to fall. True disruption occurs when existing institutions begin to embrace the forces of transformation.
