Nov. 12, 2012 - PRLog -- Nick Shackleton-Jones, Head of Online & Informal learning, Leadership Development & Talent, BP, will be the keynote speaker at the Charity Learning Conference & Awards in London on 14 November. He’ll be talking about ‘new directions in learning’ - the need for a more learner-centred approach to learning design.

Nick first coined the term ‘from courses to resources’ to describe a fundamental shift in thinking about learning during his time at the BBC. His ‘Affective Context Model’ represents a first attempt at a theoretical basis for organised learning, and he will describe the role of the ‘Care Curve’ approach at BP in building a picture of the specific resources that best meet learners’ needs. As a result, two innovative projects at BP have turned traditional eLearning on its head. He’ll explain the rationale behind these, their implementation, impact and results.

BP’s Global Induction programme, DiscoverBP, is offered to around 6,000 new starters each year. The positive reaction to and usage of it have been unprecedented.  The Hub - a low cost video-sharing platform used to share best practice and learning across BP - has also proved popular with its ‘honeybee’ approach, with a central team curating content created within the business. The Hub now contains around 800 videos on key business themes.

Nick Shackleton-Jones commented: “I believe that the work we do collectively, as a learning profession, develops through critical engagement. I am very grateful for the opportunity to share our work. I hope that by doing so we will prompt discussion about how we can improve.”

Martin Baker, founder and CEO of The Charity Learning Consortium, and a well known advocate of collaboration, said he was delighted to be welcoming Nick to open the Conference: “I’m particularly looking forward to hearing Nick talk about The Hub – as The Consortium has its own video sharing platform where our members can upload learning videos, so I’m sure that we can learn from his example.

“I’m incredibly grateful to Nick, and all our other great presenters, who have given freely of their time to help inspire our members - who work hard to develop the skills of staff and volunteers in the third sector. The knowledge and experience shared by Nick and our ‘all star cast’ will ultimately help our members achieve the best possible return from their charity learning budgets.”
