Workplace change acceleration demands more learning

Within 21 years, the average worker will be learning for an extra three hours a week, according to a recent study of Australian workplaces, undertaken by Alphabeta and commissioned by Google.

The advance of machine learning and robotics is creating the need for more lifelong learning, and the need to adapt faster. Adult education will become far more important. Short courses, whether face to face or on-line, will continue to grow in popularity.

The need to learn more at work isn’t just about to happen, its already happening now. Between 2006 and 2016 the tasks undertaken by architects changed by more than 42%.
