BoardRoomDevelopment and Training — or “learning and development” as many refer to it now — is one of the most important aspects of our lives and our work. (Many people view “training” as an activity that produces the result or outcome of “learning” — and learning is typically viewed as new knowledge, skills and competencies or abilities.) In our culture, we highly value learning. Yet, despite our having attended many years of schooling, many of us have no idea how to carefully design an approach to training and development. This topic in the Library provides an extensive range of information about training and development, including to depict how the many aspects of training and development relate to each other. Also, this topic explains how training and development can be used, informally or formally, to meet the nature and needs of the reader.

Types of Activities for Learning and Development

There are many approaches to learning and development and many types of activities that can be undertaken to learn. We’re most used to thinking of the formal, other-directed activities, such as attending courses or lectures. However, most of the types of learning are informal and unstructured. An awareness of these other types will broaden your possibilities for intentional learning and for designing training for yourself and others.
