Historically, when we have talked about learning trends, we’ve focused on learning technologies (think chat bots, AR/VR, VILT, and other learner experience design options) and how and when to best leverage them in our learning strategies. Although these trends haven’t changed significantly during the past three to five years, the mindset of when and how to implement them has shifted drastically, out of necessity. The learning industry has long been captivated by technological advancements, but L&D professionals have been slower to adopt them. Add to the mix the COVID-19 pandemic, which has forced learning leaders to recognize that the nice-to-have trends are now crucial to success.

We are excited to host our annual ATD Learning Trends webcast, sponsored by GP Strategies. Your host, Matt Donovan, chief learning and innovation officer, will go beyond learning trends and explore ways L&D organizations can thrive in a business-as-unusual world. Matt will review the top trends for learning organizations, approaches you can adopt right now, and the challenges that these trends will help address.

Key insights from the session:

  • Trends that support moving from a survive to thrive learning ecosystem
  • Approaches for embracing the digital transformation
  • Ways to FACE (Focus, Accelerate Create and Evolve) the future
  • Strategies for shaping better leader communication
