A learning objective is a statement that describes expected outcomes of a learning event. A seemingly simple concept, it is extremely important in the process of developing effective learning programs. The classic idea of learning objectives consist of three parts: performance, conditions and criteria. In Developing Learning Objectives, authors, Jack J. Phillips and Patricia Pulliam Phillips, link learning objectives to program return on investment (ROI). Developing Learning Objectives expands the classic components of learning objectives from three to six parts: project scope, the four levels of learning (training evaluation, reaction, learning, behavior), results, and the Phillips ROI. With this book, readers will be able to write specific and meaningful learning objectives that address all six components. Additionally, the methodology will enable stakeholders in the learning process to design learning programs, facilitate learning events, and make decisions regarding business impact.

Informal learning can pack quite a punch in terms of boosting workplace performance and efficiency. But what is it, and what can you do to promote informal learning in the workplace? According Bob Hoffman, informal learning is “anything that is not recognizable as formal training and performance support, such as organized classes, workshops, individualized instruction, and job aids.” In addition, it is just-in-time, contextual, individualized, personal, chunked, and limited in scope; in other words, it’s exactly what you need at exactly the moment you need it. “Informal Learning” describes 13 modes of informal learning, including information gathering, help desk use, and mixed teams. Furthermore, this Infoline presents ways that you can evaluate and promote these modes to fit your organizational context.

Sometimes, something as simple as a laminated card with short, to-the-point instructions, can do more to help an employee complete a task with high assurance of accuracy than hours or days of training. Such job aids are a quick, easy, and often inexpensive way to improve performance fast. Job aids reduce the amount of information that an employee needs to remember for tasks that are infrequently performed or for tasks that must be accomplished to an exact standard every time. Job aids take many forms, including decision trees, checklists, step-by-step instructions, flowcharts and graphic maps, look-up tables, worksheets and forms, and even reference sources, such as training manuals. This Infoline will enable the reader to determine when to use a job aid; select the type of job aid to use; select the right medium; and design, implement, and evaluate the job aid. Sidebars provide examples of different types of job aids, while the job aids included in the issue will help the reader to carry out a needs analysis
