What's a learning construct?

What's a learning construct?

A learning construct is the understanding or knowledge we create through our own experience. What we learn is arguably always the fruit of our experience and our perception of it. So our courses always try to focus on using information and knowledge to do something. The doing is what helps us learn.

We also make sure that our learning mirrors how people learn - and how they want to learn - today. We have hierarchies of information and adaptive learning pathways to suit different needs and interests, and exploratory activities outside the course 'container' to link not just with the workplace but the world outside.

And once you realise that experience 'constructs' learning, you try very hard to make that experience a positive one. So we hope you find our courses and learning designs not only useful, but enjoyable...

70:20:10

It's always 100

The 70:20:10 concept captures the idea that formal learning is often quite a small part of the learning process, while informal learning and on-the-job experience can count for much more. What the precise ratio actually is in practice is pretty unknowable; the point is that the learning process is never one-dimensional (or perhaps, never uni-directional), but embedded in an individual’s experience. So 70:20:10 is shorthand for saying that the 100% you achieve consists of many elements, and finding a good balance for a learning and change programme will increase the chances of success.

This Learning and Change Matrix shows how we leverage this. Our courses address the need for behaviour change as well as knowledge gain and develop these elements holistically. We tie the learning experience and activities to what our learners are doing - their situation and context. We use this to create and build empathy, and through that, the motivation (and the capabilities) to change.

As learning takes place everywhere, our course 'Activities' always try to bring something of the workplace into our courses, and encourage learners to take something of the course back out into work.

So whatever the ratio, the learning we foster adds up to 100...

Learning and Change Matrices

Learning Construct's Learning and Change Matrices are analytical tools to define and map organisational goals together with the appropriate levers of change, to create a matrix of measurable targets and programme components.

The matrix sets out the way in which a learning and change programme will be configured and implemented and provides a realistic measure of the return on investment – and of success – which the programme and its components have achieved.
