Editor's note
E-learning continues its rise in popularity in the workplace, but
attitudes towards using it are becoming more measured, according
to a major research study into Training Trends in 2002 published

The survey of TrainingZONE members, conducted between December
2001 and February 2002, highlights a strong market in training
and development for the coming year, with a strong emphasis on
techniques which help to develop the individual.

Any Answers
Got a burning question? Why not ask 38,000 training
professionals if they can help?

A selection from this week's questions:

- How can training programmes or training models help academics
to re-appraise their teaching approach with technology?, asks
Paula Hodgson

- Does anyone have any info/tips on how to improve the skills of
an interviewer, (me!), particularly in relation to
paraphrasing/rephrasing questions and clarification of
responses?, asks Ann Marie McKenna

Thanks to Mary Jackson, Colin Hamilton and Gareth Pugh, who
were among those sharing the benefit of their expertise with
other members this week.
