Measuring the Effectiveness of Social and Informal Learning

Posted by Julie Delazyn

How you can use assessments to measure the effectiveness of informal learning?  If people are learning at different times, in different ways and without structure, how do you know it’s happening? And how can you justify investment in social and informal learning initiatives?

The 70+20+10 model of learning – which explains that we learn 70% on-the-job, 20% from others and 10% from formal study – brings out the importance of informal learning initiatives. But the effectiveness of such initiatives needs to be measured, and there needs to be proof that people are performing better as a result of their participation in social and informal learning.

This SlideShare presentation:  Measuring the Impact of Social and Informal Learning, explains various approaches to testing and measuring learning for a new generation of students and workers.  We hope you will use it to gather some new ideas about how to answer these important questions about learning:  Did they like it? Did they learn it? Are they doing it?
