When onboarding new employees or helping people adjust to new roles, your biggest responsibility is going to be teaching them everything they need to know for their new position. But what are the best ways to do this?
One relatively new philosophy in the world of education and training is role-based learning. But what exactly is this philosophy, and how can you use it to greatest effect?
Let's start by looking at the basics of role-based learning. Traditional forms of education focus on teaching people specific principles; your curriculum is put together based on a hierarchy of knowledge, and students are required to learn specific facts in a specific order.
But with role-based learning, the focus is slightly different; the highest priority is equipping students with all the knowledge and skills they need to be successful in a specific role. To create the perfect training program, you first need to understand what the responsibilities of a given position will be. From there, you can structure your educational program to make sure that each employee learns everything they need to know to be successful.
There are several advantages to this approach, including:
Role-based learning certainly looks appealing for most training and education programs. But integrating it into your existing curriculum, or preparing your students/employees for it can be difficult.
Here are some strategies that can help you:
If you want to tap into the most powerful benefits of role-based learning, one of your best options is to use a learning experience platform (LXP). LXPs are platforms designed to make training and education within an organization as easy and seamless as possible, while maximizing employee engagement and retention at the same time. Your LXP will be a centralized home base for a variety of different educational resources, including in-house content, third-party content, and even user generated content.
Even better, LXPs are easy to integrate and are fully customizable, allowing you to use them in conjunction with major business partners or other software currently used in your organization.
