The efficiency of classical learning opportunities is rather questionable in regards to its costs-value ratio (less than 10% of the learned topics are later applied). In order to efficiently convey new knowledge in the context of economic reality, we need innovative and inspiring training models. Furthermore an increasing number of digital natives as well as the generation Y desire new learning methods. Old practices are replaced by cognitive knowledge transfer based upon cooperative, playful interactions.
We therefore research the following subjects:
• Game-based Learning and Gamification
• Self-organized Learning processes in virtual training environments
Only those who master the game of economics will make the right decisions to achieve sustainable growth. In order to succeed in today’s global competition for customers and market share, we have expanded our management research to include Learning 4.0, and more specifically virtual training environments.
Learning is tomorrow’s driver of growth. However, knowledge is not the only deciding factor for a company’s success. The skills that we learn are also important to help us make decisions in complex situations. Competence is an important factor for future success.
In order to succeed in the future, the accessibility of new knowledge and the development of creative ideas and solutions for an efficient transfer of knowledge need to be part of today’s management agendas.
In the crosslinked digital world knowledge is almost freely available. But simply free access to knowledge is not enough in a competitive society.
Nowadays, the ones who understood how to manage the information overload and impart the necessary knowledge quickly and interestingly, are the ones with the competitive advantage.
