  • Characteristics of Cohort Learning

Collaborative Cohort Learning at HCSC

  • Sample Results
  • Professional Cohort Program Results
  • More than 1,000 employees from all areas of the company have participated in cohorts. The following is a sampling of their feedback:
  • “I liked the variety of learning methods, from the articles to read to the online courses to the threaded discussions to the weekly meetings. Something for every learning style.”
  • “The format made it much easier to attend something like this. It was nice to have some self study so you can work it easily into your schedule.”
  • “I found it to be a great learning experience. The threaded discussions were a great way to debate with the other members of the team - I gained some great insight. The four weeks went by so fast.”
  • Executive Cohort Program Results
  • More than 93% of HCSC’s senior executives have attended at least one cohort, with tremendous interest in future availability. Results and feedback have been outstanding:
  • Over 85% of executive participants reported they applied the knowledge gained within 60 days of attending.
  • “The multi-channel delivery was most valuable. The SME podcasts were engaging and informative, the sessions were interesting.”
  • “It’s extremely valuable to help break down silos when we hear how different areas interact and mutually affect each other in a major part of the business.”
  • “It was outstanding to have the opportunity to spend time with very knowledgeable executives to talk through impacts to our company.”
  • Key Lessons Learned
  • Innovation in learning solutions as well as learning measurement is critical to continuous learning.
  • Having an open mind to consider all forms of learning modalities and modularity can lead to creatively syncing simple pieces together that meet the learners’ needs.
  • Don’t assume that knowledge sharing and networking are occurring. While it happens sporadically, why leave it to chance? Enabling this process with goals, structure and tools is key.
  • When deciding on measurement, listen to how your customer defines success and avoid the urge to use other measures that provide a diminishing return.
