The Best of DTS Issue 3: Never Stop Learning

Albert Einstein famously said, “When you stop learning you start dying.” Indeed, there’s nothing that inspires new ideas and reactions like new knowledge. Do you remember when you first heard about Twitter? Or when you saw the Apple Watch? Absolutely game changing! We encourage you to keep your workplace just as inspiring, so this month we offer a few ways to do just that.

Have you started a new training or enrichment program that’s worked wonders? Or taken a class that changed your outlook? I’d love to hear about it. Shoot me an email at Edward.Tuorinsky@consultDTS.com or call 571.403.1841.

The Place for Knowledge is at Work: E-Learning in the Public Sector

Back-to-school season is the official end of summer. It’s the perfect time for kicking off a new chapter of learning. But once we’re out of the school cycle, when is the right time for learning? As you might expect, we seek knowledge right when we need it – when we’re facing a challenge, needing to use new a new system, or trying to master a skill. Fortunately, e-Learning is in-session, year-round.

With technology and a whole slew of experts-as-teachers, e-Learning delivers what public sector workforces need, “just-in-time.” Today’s e-Learning options are less costly and more feasible for offices looking to share best practices across different locations, or gain new topic-specific knowledge.

Here’s what you need to capitalize on e-Learning this year:
» Write eLearning into your 2018 plans and goals.
» Conduct workforce planning and training analysis to anticipate needs, prioritize, and identify the best eLearning options.
»  Identify learning liaisons and resources to aid implementation. This person – or group – will making e-Learning work, from booking the room for a training session, to getting the app to participate in online video chats.

Declare your own back-to-school season anytime with e-Learning options that are convenient and timely. Need the legwork done yesterday? Talk to DTS about our Learning Enhancement Solutions.»
