Janet Clarey on Multi-Generational Learning in the Workplace

March 27, 2009 Sarah Danzl

Janet Clarey is a Senior Researcher at Brandon Hall and a highly respected and popular blogger on the subjects of training, learning technologies, and instructional design. In this podcast, she talks about her latest research: Multi-Generational Learning in the Workplace.

There are a number of misconceptions around how the different generations want to learn. When it comes to designing instruction, some of the biggest mistakes that organizations make are to assume that there are Millennial learning styles, Boomer learning styles, etc. and that the use of technology for training and learning is somehow related to age. Janet talks about the ramifications of such generalizations. She also touches on the connect worker and how the network has changed the way we retrieve and interact with information and each other – and this goes across generations.
