Do you want employees to seize control of their own development and focus on personal areas for improvement? In this article, I’ll share 9 notable characteristics of learner-centered online training.As the name suggests, learner-centered online training is all about catering to the needs, goals, and expectations of your employees. Every online training activity is geared toward individual growth and bridging relevant gaps. This is in stark contrast to traditional online training, wherein the instructor takes center stage. But how do you create personalized online training that puts employees in charge? These are the 9 quintessential characteristics of learner-centered online training.Employees have the opportunity to explore online training topics on their own and pursue their interests rather than trying to keep up with their co-workers or participate in one-size-fits-all online training activities. They are also able to focus on skills that cater to their job duties and personal areas for improvement. An added benefit of self-guided exploration is the ability to learn from mistakes. Employees are more likely to challenge their assumptions and evaluate their performance when they are in control.
