Great list of most-read articles in 2014 from Training Industry. Wide variety of topics, from social learning to learning transfer to leadership. One of the most highly-read training articles is “Delivering on the Promise of Social Learning” where modern classroom set-up is compared to a kitchen table. The focus is on participation of learners and conversation at their table. Interesting outcome is that the shared experience of learning will encourage connections long after training.
At ContactPointe, we are seeing this classroom set-up preference as well. Instead of calling it kitchen table, we refer to it as pod. We customize the room set-up based on our client’s learning goals. Other common layouts are chevron, conference room, classroom, and U shaped.
