Today, when classroom and even live content is mostly on hold, we still need to help people upskill and reskill. Not only has the current situation increased the pace of change, it makes it more challenging to close skill gaps as quickly as we need to.

How can you leverage this situation to demonstrate your value? Use it as an opportunity to innovate. While in the past, your stakeholders may have been reluctant to try new, more effective means of learning, now is the time to open their minds to new possibilities. Consider changing the way learners access learning content. Consider changing the way they consume the content and apply what they learn on the job. This new mindset can create a learning culture, positioning your organization to remain relevant in the years to come. It can make every bit of content you have more valuable.

At the end of this hands-on session you’ll:

  • Be able to use a methodology to convert content including classroom, e-learning, microlearning, video, articles, and webcasts into competency-based experiential learning.
  • Have many examples of competency-based experiential learning you can use right away in your organization.
  • Have the ability to start changing learning mindsets, regardless of the size of your talent and learning team..

 When you register, be sure to share a question you are hoping the presenters will answer during the webcast.
