Formal and informal learning could be combined more effectively

One of the most important questions for vocational education turns on how formal and informal learning can be combined more effectively.

Harald Weingartner, a co-CEO of tts GmbH, provided some advice on this topic in his opening remarks to “Talent Management” section of the tts Knowledge Transfer Forum 2013.

Integrating collaborative work will be one of the greatest challenges over the next few years. “We are working hard to bring these worlds together, wherever it makes sense and adds value,” Wein-gartner stressed. One way to accomplish this is to make it easier to produce and distribute user-generated content. Another possibility is to develop social learning platforms that facilitate fast learning in the workplace.
