EBSCO Launches Corporate Learning Watch
EBSCO Publishing announced Corporate Learning Watch, a new evidence-based monitoring service that investigates learning techniques for corporate learning professionals and focuses on the methods that can be used within businesses to facilitate employee learning. Corporate Learning Watch builds on EBSCO's collection of expert and peer-reviewed corporate learning-related literature to present the user with nonbiased actionable intelligence-an executive decision-support tool based on proprietary, evidence-based content. The resource uses a systematic approach to monitor developments in the literature and follow an established multistep evidence-based literature surveillance process.
Corporate Learning Watch provides users with the latest expert analysis and findings on corporate learning issues, all based on the evidence that is presented in the literature. The following is a list of specific areas that the reports in Corporate Learning Watch focus on:
- Community building
- Learning and technology
- Learning and the individual
- Learning methods
- Learning resources
- Learning staff
- Learning structure
- Learning support
- Organizational change
- Talent management
Corporate Learning Watch has adapted EBSCO's core evidence-based methodology to areas of interest to corporate executives. The evidence-based approach identifies, selects, and systematically evaluates pertinent information and creates a synthesis of the best available evidence. EBSCO's experience with evidence-based content includes Sustainability Watch and the upcoming Food Industry Watch as well as the point-of-care resources it provides to hospitals and other medical institutions, including the clinical decision support resource DynaMed.
Corporate Learning Watch may be integrated into corporate portals and intranets. The EBSCOhost Integration Toolkit allows EBSCO's content to be incorporated into an organization's workflow, providing seamless access to premium content.
