We’re starting to plan this year’s Learning at Work (LAW) Week, which is being held between 13 and 20 May 2019. Learning at Work Week is promoted each year by the Campaign for Learning, and aims to put a spotlight on the importance and benefits of learning and development at work, by getting organisations to take part in organising learning activities at their workplaces.
If you’ve got any ideas for learning activities, or would like to get involved in the planning for ASA Learning at Work Week 2019 activities, then email us at email@example.com
The theme for this year’s Learning at Work Week is ‘Shaping the future’. The theme has been set to help people think about how we can explore what the future might bring, and what kinds of trends and predictions there might be for our business, work, and life, and what the impact of these might be.
Some of the things that Campaign for Learning suggest for ways of organising learning activities on the theme include:
How can we build and enhance learning cultures which help us to shape, adapt and be resilient to change? How can we motivate ourselves and others to be continual lifelong learners so we are ready to deal with challenges and benefit from opportunities?
Some ideas for activities:
- Learnfest: Celebrate all types of learning with one minute, five minute and longer bite size sessions with colleagues teaching and learning from each other face to face, online, via video and social media.
- Learning Matters: Talks and Q&As by leaders and senior managers on how they’ve dealt with and deal with change, how continual learning can help and how they learn to keep up to speed.
How can we actively shape our individual, collective and organisational futures through learning? How can we cultivate the sharing of experiences and collaboration to identify challenges and opportunities? How can we design activities to generate new ideas for business, work and life?
Some ideas for activities:
- Design the Future: arrange co-design workshops with colleagues and users across the business. Use them to identify and understand problems and generate ideas and prototypes for new products, new services and new designs for learning.
- Essentials: Provide opportunities for colleagues to gain and brush up on the essentials in maths, English and digital skills to enhance future learning and development.
- Learning journeys: broaden colleague’s perspectives of how they might develop at work by promoting internal career pathways (across and up) the organisation. Arrange careers conversations to discuss being skilled for the future. Ask former apprentices to talk about their learning journeys with new apprentices.
- Knowledge Exchange: arrange knowledge exchange seminars with research organisations to discuss theory, latest research and practice in relevant fields for your organisation.
