ROHEI Kicks Off First Round of Digital Learning Experiences for SFDW
News & Updates | December 5, 2017
ROHEI welcomed its first batch of digital learners this November 2017. The first series of SkillsFuture for Digital Workplace (SFDW) programs equipped clients from the banking, finance, and technology industries, imparting digital confidence and learning agility to hundreds of learners this past month.
ROHEI’s SkillsFuture for Digital Workforce programs are contextualized to the needs of clients and the technological realities of their industries.
Contextualized experiential digital learning
Among the first programs launched was a partnership with UOB, a long-time client of ROHEI. UOB launched its PCP (New Professional Conversion Programme) and engaged ROHEI for its digital learning component. “The objective was to help create digital awareness for the UOB Channels staff on emerging technologies, cyber security, and learning agility,” says Joel Mok, ROHEI’s lead experience designer for SFDW.
“Such programs help to minimize the risk of local banking staff being displaced by technology,” said Second Minister for Manpower Josephine Teo in Business Times.
Better caught than taught
Some things are better caught than taught rings true for digital programs, as much as for core skills training. “We cannot deliver effective training without contextualizing both the learning points and the experiences,” Joel says.
The SFDW experience focuses on four learning areas: (1) Learn How to Connect – using technology to establish connections and communicate (2) Learn How to Be Safe – cybersecurity, (3) Learn How to Learn – learning agility, and (4) Learn How to Create – being proactive in the digital world, identifying and making use of opportunities.
ROHEI’s learning stations provide opportunities for participants to interact with technology. As they are familiarized with technology, this lowers their “tech anxiety” and increases openness to its use. They become more open to learning and adopting new solutions at the workplace and at home.
The programme was an eye-opener. It provided adequate examples of technological advancements. Good foundational programme. Facilitators were full of energy and it clearly flowed into the audience. Thank you for the experience.
