Glassdoor Survey: Employees Want More Training Programs, Not Degrees

Glassdoor Survey: Employees Want More Training Programs, Not Degrees | Education and Training | Scoop.it

Recently, a number of analysts and editorialists have attempted to tackle the much-debated question: are degrees and advanced degrees worth it? 

 

With the jury still out, Glassdoor and market research firm Harris Interactive asked nearly 1,000 U.S. employees about their own opinions on the value of higher education.

 

 

A large majority of respondents--82 percent--said that their undergraduate degree has, indeed, helped to boost their career. However, when it comes to further acquiring the skills they need for their job, 72 percent of employees said they value specialized training over earning a degree.

Classics ~ Adult Learning Theory & Andragogy Slideshare ~ Malcolm Knowles

Highlights that apply to technology training & learning, as relevant today.

 

Why specifics are being taught  (commands, functions, operations...)

   

Learning is task oriented within a context of common, needed tasks, not memorization

    

Teaching accounts for the wide range of backgrounds of learnings  (different levels / previous experience of learners)

   

Allows for self-direction, discovery - offering guidance through mistakes, offering help in learning if needed

A good visual summary of the classic work of Knowles, useful as a refresher of the basics.  The SlideShare author has also encouraged free sharing of the "Presentation of Andragogy." ~ D

All learning should be premised on the learner actively taking a role in their own learning.
