Virtual Learning: A Revolutionary Approach to Building a Highly Skilled Workforce
The majority of today’s corporate training programs are weak, ineffective, costly, and hated by the employees they are supposed to train. Worst of all, they are boring. Visionary educator Roger Schank has a better way, one that has been proven to produce exceptional in all levels of employees. In Virtual Learning: A Revolutionary Approach to Building a Highly Skilled Workforce, this world-renowned professor and consultant demonstrates his "learning by doing" programs through actual examples and entertaining case histories. Schank’s computer simulation and role-playing scenario methods have helped companies as diverse as Andersen Consulting, Ameritech, AT&T, Target, and Bennigan’s to save training expense, not to mention the incalculable cost of poorly-trained employees; use computer-based training to escape "read and memorize" programs of the past; teach employees to make discoveries on their own and train themselves; allow employees to fail in training exercises and learn from those failures; and broaden training goals and objectives to keep from limiting what is learned. Whether you are a trainer or human resource manager, a department manager, or even a CEO or other executive struggling over ways to get more from your workforce, let Roger Schank’s Virtual Learning give you a head start on your competitors in learning tomorrow’s computer interactive employee training procedures.
