Workshop: Dissolving Resistance to e-Learning
E-learning applies pressure to change in two different
Like traditional training and development, e-learning forces
employees to face the fact that someone thinks we are currently
inadequate in some area and need to change. In addition, we
must use a new, and often daunting, technology to make the
change. No wonder surveys show that learners and trainers
often prefer the tried and true traditional training setting.
Resistance to change is the culprit
As a result of this two-pronged pressure, new e-learners experience
two distinct doses of resistance to change: resistance to
learning the content of the program and resistance to using
a new technology. The result is a universal under-realization
of e-learning's potential.
Dissolving Resistance to e-Learning is the solution
Using a proprietary survey developed for e-learners as the
basis, this workshop gives trainers a way to talk with their
e-learners to help them dissolve both types of resistance
to the e-learning setting. It also helps e-learners release
their reluctance to embrace e-learning as a way to realize
the benefits of this new approach to development.

- More efficient learning by employees.
- Trainers receive instruction in using a proprietary
survey designed to dissolve e-learners' resistance.
- Increased ability of trainers to make decisions
about when e-learning will and will not work.
