Redwood Shores, Calif.–April 10, 2007–Saba (NASDAQ: SABA), the premier Human Capital Management (HCM) software and services provider, is presenting a Web seminar with Jay Cross, author of Informal Learning: Rediscovering the Natural Pathways That Inspire Innovation and Performance. The seminar will focus on learning through informal technologies such as wikis, blogs and Web 2.0 capabilities, rather than formal training techniques. Cross will discuss integration methods of informal learning in the workplace for ways to inspire innovation and organizational performance among the younger workforce.
"Informal learning is the unofficial, unscheduled, impromptu way most of us learn to do our jobs, through conversation. We learn what to do by observing others, trial-and-error, and simply working with people," says Cross. "Most corporations pay no attention to the natural and simple ways people learn; they are overlooking the most efficient resources."
Jay Cross is an internationally acclaimed speaker who has challenged conventional wisdom about adult learning. He designed the first distance learning business degree program offered by the University of Phoenix 30 years ago and is attributed with coining the term e-learning. In addition to his book, Informal Learning, he has also co-authored Implementing eLearning and writes about his passion for learning on his blog, internettime.com. Cross formerly served as CEO of eLearning Forum, is a founder of Internet Time Group and is currently a columnist for CLO Magazine.
