In this exclusive interview with Learnnovators, Nick shares his insights on how people really learn. He explains his views on the difference between education and learning in the context of our workplaces. Nick’s recommendation to provide relevant resources, accessible at the point of need to our people at work, so as to ensure that ‘less learning’ will take place, is highly thought-provoking. “Education will come to an end soon – not because it is pointless and brutal – but because economic pressure is driving people to become producers and consumers at an early age.” was Nick’s reflection on the future of workplace learning in 2022 and beyond.
