How to cater to all learning styles

How to cater to all learning styles

Even as children, we all respond to different methods of teaching. We learn in our own ways and what’s most effective for one learner won’t necessarily fit another. Back in 1992, the variety between learning styles was formalised in the so-called VARK model: Visual, Auditory, Reading (and Writing) and Kinaesthetic.

Most managers already understand the people learn in different ways. But when you’re equipping your team with an online platform to improve their skills, how can you keep everyone happy – and learning – at once?

The answer is simpler than you might think.

Why mobile learning isn’t the future – it’s the present

Why mobile learning isn’t the future – it’s the present

A quick glance around the internet and you’ll see hundreds of news stories and articles about how mobility is the future of business. But people have been saying that kind of thing for years and, now, the future has crept up on us. A world that’s mobile, flexible and on-demand isn’t coming – it’s arrived.

Liam Smith from Millbank

Here is his entry:

Let the knowledge pour

Recruitment Juice goes above and beyond the realms of normal training courses. On call support and guidance, coupled with engaging content makes for the perfect mix. I enrolled on the course to enhance my understanding and develop myself into a consultant and within 4 months of the course, I’m applying this newfound knowledge in everyday situations and the results speak for themselves. Having the ability to complete the coursework on the job or at home allows me to prioritise my day and complete work in my own time, around the clock. Since joining recruitment juice, I’ve been given an insight into how my job role effects the economy on a larger scale and the impact I can have if I continue to progress on my career journey. The skills I’m learning, are pushing me past the boundaries of a resourcer and into the frame for promotion and I can only thank the team at recruitment Juice for giving me the confidence to adapt my style and find the method of recruitment that suits me, through webinars and tailored work packages, I’ve been able to focus on the key elements of recruitment that interest me and make me a better recruiter.

Thanks for your entry Liam and enjoy your prize!

Keep your eyes peeled for further competitions!

THE IMPORTANCE OF TRAINING EMPLOYEES FOR YOUR BUSINESS

The Importance of Training Employees for your Business

The vast majority of businesses wouldn’t even consider having unskilled and unqualified workers on their staff. However, it is pretty common that their workers aren’t really on par with industry standards; and there may be multiple reasons for that, and many of them have nothing to do with the employees themselves.

A very common cause of a worker’s under-qualification is the constantly changing technology, which keeps becoming increasingly demanding. Whether it is the employees’ fault or not, it is the employer’s responsibility to improve their personnel’s knowledge base continually, so that their output continues to satisfy industry standards.

In this article, we’ve compiled a list of reasons why all business owners should care about investing in training their employees.

How Humour Makes Learning Stick

How Humour Makes Learning Stick

“I used to work at the bank, but I lost interest.”

If we agree that, at least in theory, this is a joke, you can see it works using the element of surprise. The first half of the sentence sends your mind in one direction. The second half surprises you with something unexpected.

That’s what makes a joke work. But it’s also why jokes are often hard to remember and retell.

By definition, humour doesn’t always fit into your normal flow of logic. So as quickly as the brain takes a joke in, it quickly throws it aside once you’ve finished laughing.

And that raises a question when it comes to learning: why is humour so often forgettable, yet humour in training is proven to increase retention?
