News about NSI project ‘Capitalizing the strength of informal learning’
Many companies have become aware of the limited power of formal training programs and are looking at how workplace learning (or informal learning; learning as an inherent part of the daily work) can be encouraged and supported. In this context, this diagnostic tool in the format of an app measures the strengths and weaknesses of a company (or unit) in terms of informal learning and employability. When professionals fill in the survey, they will receive immediate feedback on their informal learning and how this is related to their employability. This tool provides organizations a basis for structurally supporting the exchange of knowledge and feedback in the workplace (two powerful components  of informal learning) thereby increasing employability.
