What Is Social Learning?
Social learning is learning via communication and examples from others, a combination of formal and informal learning, which increases knowledge retention and employee motivation.
The main idea of social learning is to give learners an opportunity to exchange creative ideas and solutions, share gained knowledge, work experience and collaborate with one another.
In comparison with the traditional learning approach where the training process follows a predetermined curriculum and the trainer is the center of knowledge, social learning is not scheduled and happens whenever a question or idea appears.
