Continuous learning is essential in academic and business environments for the 21st century learner as success, survival, and growth lean toward the educator answering the question, ‘Which educational design best facilitates educators in becoming learner-focused while producing adaptive completers in this ubiquitous learning environment?' This research team proposes a unique but growing solution around educational synergies in which all learner-focused groups drive the understanding of learning, adaptation, practice, and change. To clarify the difference between training, development, and learning, the following are discussed: 1. reviewing success in learning, as a continuum into the processes of survival and growth; 2. conceptualizing the training model situated inside learning and development; and 3. synergizing the educational epistemology that bridges the gap between training and learning. Last, grouping of key trends expanded through theory and technology to support concrete recommendations for analyzing the influence of synergies through educational evolution around training, development, and learning.

Understanding Learning Methodology

In today’s academic world, three keys to learning emerge because one must succeed, survive, and grow. To realize these three keys, the learner needs a learning system. That learning system should transfer from the academic environment into the work environment for the learner to experience success, survival, and growth. Let us review the understanding of success, survival, and growth in terms of learning.
