Here in Australia, we recognise training at work in a thing called the VET sector. VET (Vocational Education Training) plays a major role in the provision of training to many parts of the workforce. From what I understand, VET includes the concept of education and pedagogy, which has often been interpreted as having a wider reach than training. When I talk about training, I think of a broad range of learning and development activities that lead to better performance.
So, in my opinion, if us Aussies are to take their place in the world, the people that offer learning, education and training should agree to some common themes. Training is not just about work. Yes it is an essential and key activity in the workplace, but learning and development applies to all aspects of human development, like relationship building and communication etc. And as we all know, organisations need to learn and adapt quickly in response to market needs and wants.
This means that training needs to be available easily and quickly. Hence, this means that a lot of e-Learning should be created in small chunks not massive long winded courses etc. Some people call it Just In Time Training or JIT. With this in mind, I am working on a framework for a customisable Induction e-Learning Pack to possibly sell at a later stage.
