n¦w – «Kassensturz»-Spezial: Die negativen Folgen flexibler Arbeitszeit

«Kassensturz»-Spezial Andreas Krause

In der Kassensturz-Spezialsendung spricht Prof. Dr. Andreas Krause von der Hochschule für Angewandte Psychologie FHNW über Chancen und Gefahren von Arbeitszeitflexibilisierung.

Mehr Freiheit bei der Gestaltung der Arbeit versprechen bürgerliche Politiker. Sie wollen darum das Arbeitsgesetz lockern. Gewerkschaften jedoch befürchten Burnouts, Arbeiten bis zum Umfallen und noch mehr Stress. «Kassensturz» zeigt, wer von flexiblen Arbeitszeiten profitiert – und wer verliert.

iversity – Video Role-Play Training : How to Teach Communication Skills Online

video role-play

Video role-play training assignments thus allow us to teach things online that are often thought of as being hard to teach in a digital format. Namely courses on real-life communication skills where there is no dichotomous black or white. Where there are many right and many wrong answers and many different shades of grey in between.

iversity – Rethinking Corporate Professional Development: Achieving Quality at Scale

squaring the circle of corporate professional development

Traditional corporate professional development is stuck between a rock and a hard place. While on-site training is expensive (trainer, venue, travel, accommodation, catering) and bound to a specific time and location, traditional web-based trainings and elearning courses are scalable, but suffer from low didactic quality and thus fail to achieve advanced learning outcomes. Webinars combine advantages and disadvantages of both of these approaches.

What companies need is an effective online learning experience that enables learners to reach learning outcomes on par with the best classroom training – at scale, anytime and anywhere. We believe that asynchronous, active (“lean forward”) learning and social online courses can help to square the circle. That is: achieve advanced learning outcomes at a reasonable price point.

Les offres d’emploi ont progressé de 11% sur les trois premiers mois de l’année, mais cette hausse s’explique surtout par une reprise habituelle après le ralentissement saisonnier du dernier trimestre.

OECD – Education & Skills Today : How to surf the new wave of globalisation

There is a potential weak link in global value chains: the workers who don’t have the right cognitive, social or emotional skills to contribute to – and benefit from – it. The 2017 OECD Skills Outlook shows there are over 200 million workers in OECD countries who don’t even have the most basic foundation skills. In all countries more educated workers enjoy higher job quality. But while better integration with global value chains has resulted in significant increases in productivity, it has also widened the gap in job quality between those with better and worse skills.

To ensure that no one is left behind, countries need to equip all workers with a mix of skills and qualifications that are relevant and understood around the world. These skills are needed to realise the productivity gains offered by global value chains and ensure that these gains transfer to a broad range of firms, including small ones, and thereby benefit the whole economy.

DrEducation – Brand awareness and feeder partnerships critical for success with international student recruitment : Global webinar

Are universities shifting international student recruitment strategies? 

The political and economic changes of the past year will have far-reaching impact on the future mobility patterns of students. The vote for Brexit and Trump’s triumph in the US presidential election, in the two largest destination countries for international students, revealed strong support for anti-immigration policies. The UK and the US are set on a path to creating more barriers to attracting and retaining international students. The two largest source countries of international students – China and India – experienced economic changes that decelerated the ambitions and ability of students to go abroad. The slowdown in economies will make some students more concerned about recovering the cost of education.

The combination of these changes in the leading source and destination countries indicates that institutions must brace themselves for a new environment of uncertainty, hyper-competition, and turbulence. This global online discussion (webinar) will bring together a panel of global experts to examine how they are adapting institutional strategies in a new environment. What are the strategic options institutions are considering in response to this turbulence? The discussion will highlight diverse perspectives to inform international enrolment strategies.

Class Central – MOOCWatch April 2017: The Shrinking of Free

What’s free in MOOCs has constantly been shrinking. In recent months, FutureLearn has started limiting access to MOOCs once they are over, while Coursera has made it harder to receive financial aid.

But at the other end of the spectrum, MOOC providers are also trying to move upmarket and create offerings that are more expensive than a single course. Every MOOC provider has expanded their product lines to target multiple price points from tens of dollars to tens of thousands of dollars.

Prospective Blog – Instagram und Facebook-Stories im Recruiting einsetzen: So funktioniert’s!

Facebook und Instagram bieten die Funktion „Stories“ an, dank welcher Videos und Bilder aufgeschaltet werden können, die nach 24 Stunden wieder gelöscht werden. Wie kann diese Funktion für Rekrutierungszwecke eingesetzt werden?

Wie auch beim Einsatz von WhatsApp, Snapchat und Live-Stream Apps ist seitens Recruiter eine gewisse Spontanität beim Einsatz von Stories gefragt. Die Zielgruppe erwartet bei der Verwendung von solchen Kommunikationsmitteln keine Perfektion, sondern will vielmehr auf einer emotionalen Ebene angesprochen und abgeholt werden. Wir bleiben am Ball und werden gespannt beobachten, wie diese Funktion konkret von Firmen im Social Recruiting genutzt wird.

Als Beispiel: Coop hat vor kurzem einen Snapchat-Rekrutierungs-Kanal lanciert, welcher von Lernenden betreut wird. Dieser bietet weitere gelungene Einblicke, wie solche Kurz-Geschichten im Bereich der Rekrutierung eingesetzt werden können.

JOBTIC – Le corpoworking ou quand les entreprises se mettent au coworking

Le corpoworking ou quand les entreprises se mettent au coworking


Le coworking, on connaît: ce sont des indépendants qui partagent un bureau pour limiter les frais et se retrouver entre professionnels. A priori, cela n’a rien à voir avec le monde de l’entreprise classique. Pourtant, les grandes boîtes se sont inspirées de ce modèle pour créer le corpoworking.

Contraction des mots «corporate» et «coworking», le terme «corpoworking» est le dernier trend du monde professionnel. Cette nouvelle tendance consiste à mettre un espace de travail partagé à la disposition des salariés d’une entreprise.
