Collaborative learning solutions bring your distributed teams together and keep everyone in the L&D loop. But is it the right strategy for your organization? Can it help your employees bridge gaps more rapidly and hone crucial skills? This eBook sheds light on collaborative learning science, best practices, and secrets to choose the best content provider. Before we dive into the sneak preview, let’s discuss some of the overlooked advantages of launching a collaborative learning program for your workforce.
Unexpected Perks Of Collaborative Learning Solutions
Most workforces consist of diverse experience levels, cultures, and areas of expertise. Collaborative learning solutions give you the power to bring out the best in your team by tapping into their full knowledge-sharing potential. Here are a few overlooked benefits you may want to consider:
Fosters Emotional Connectivity
Collaborative learning gives employees the opportunity to connect with content on an emotional level instead of merely reading about it. They can assign meaning, discuss it with peers, and explore new problem-solving approaches. In short, they’re able to dive into the subject matter and assimilate key facts and stats more effectively because it’s an emotional experience. Even quick chats with remote coworkers give them the chance to share ideas and evaluate the topic through a different lens.
Offers JIT Support
Online learners no longer have to wait until the next formal training session to ask questions or get remote support. Collaborative learning allows them to tap into their peer network for immediate help or insights. For instance, they aren’t sure how to perform a task or how to avoid common compliance slipups. They can hop on to the message boards or address the issue during their next peer coaching session. This also alleviates some of the burden from managers and instructors/facilitators because coworkers fill in the gaps organically.
Builds A Better Team Dynamic
A team that learns together stays together. Collaborative learning solutions help you create a more cohesive remote workforce because learners know they can count on fellow employees. Furthermore, they all have access to resources that bridge skill, performance, and knowledge gaps so that they contribute even more to your team. For example, they foster interpersonal skills that boost CX scores and prevent on-the-job conflicts. Plus, they’re more likely to form meaningful working relationships with their colleagues thanks to the collaborative learning activities.
Reduces Employee Turnover
Collaborative learning is one of the most custom-tailored L&D strategies because it molds to fit learners’ needs. Someone who requires more one-on-one guidance can ask a mentor for help, while other gaps might call for group-based activities. Thus, employees are more likely to stay with your organization because they have personalized, ongoing support. As a result, your company reduces its new hire recruitment and training expenses by hanging on to top performers.
