About New Learning

In 2011, IT-University introduced ‘New Learning‘ within the Dutch IT education market. New Learning makes it possible to learn MORE for LESS money, WHERE and WHEN this suits best. Research has shown that the companies that apply ‘New Learning’ show faster growth, require 60% less working time to learn and have an increase of 26% per employee in productivity. Therefore, ‘New Learning’ cannot be disregarded. However, how doe you approach this successfully? What are the pitfalls? How can ‘New Learning’ become a success? IT-University and its customers have generated a lot of knowledge through the years, resulting in IT-University becoming the best designated IT training institute to turn ‘New Learning’ a success within every IT-department.

Trends & Developments

‘New Learning’ is a lot more than merely eLearning. At IT-University, besides training videos, you will also have ebooks, a practice environment, exercise questions and practice exams, eCoach guidance, reports and free use of the IT-University New Learning APP at your disposal. Considering recent research among leading companies, the future of eLearning looks more positive than ever. Some of the highlights are:
  • Grow faster;
  • Innovate faster;
  • Have lower employee turnover rates;
  • Enjoy higher productivity per employee;
  • Are more environmentally-friendly;
  • Generate more profit.

Current state of affairs

Per 8-hour working day, about 38 minutes are lost as a result of poorly functioning equipment and networks, but particularly due to poor digital knowledge of the employees themselves as well. The total damage arising from this for the Netherlands amounts to 19 billion euros. This is evidenced by research carried out by the University of Twente, the Netherlands.

Put a stop to Old Learning and choose for New Learning!!

The many technological developments make it possible to implement ‘New Learning’. The manner in which IT-University implements this is based on three questions:
  • WHAT do you wish to learn?
    (You only learn the missing knowledge you require);
  • HOW do you wish to learn?
    (Is it possible to use the learning form you like and suits you best?);
  • WHERE & WHEN do you wish to learn?
    (During or outside working hours or a combination of the two).
With the answers to these questions, IT-University will be able to provide a customized offer. We have a wide range of IT training courses and learning forms. You may think of classroom-based, In-Company and virtual classroom training methods or e-learning or a ‘blended’ combination of these.

New Learning is the solution

IT-University has developed a vision on New Learning. Here is a summary:
  • Because of the knowledge-intensive times we live in, we need to learn from the ‘cradle to the grave’;
  • The responsibility for this expressly lies with the learning individual;
  • We learn Question-based / Case-based / Project-based / Experience-based / Competency-based;
  • The learner is inquisitive by nature. The teacher must provide an environment fit for exploration;
  • ‘New Learning’ means new learning forms. Classroom-based learning is in decline;
  • The learner is increasingly autonomous in the learning process and determines what / how / where / when to learn;
  • The employer increasingly assumes the role of facilitator, because of the required knowledge level within the own organization, but also to have people commit and gain their interest;
  • Measure the result (certification) rather than the learning activity.
IT-University considers it to be its role to guide both the manager and the employee and make their lives easier with training concepts that fit within this vision.
