Dispatches from Recent Learning Events

Dispatches from Recent Learning Events

We’ve had our ear to the ground at several learning events in recent weeks, CLO Breakfasts and the like, and have heard some strong themes emerge out of conversations from learning leaders:

Shared Challenges

  • The frantic pace of digital disruption/transformation is hard to keep up with
  • On-the-job application is definitely needed more than eye-rolling fictitious scenario-based learning

  • eLearning is outdated, with the inability to update quickly at odds with the pace of new information
  • If you cannot imagine living in your learners’ shoes, your learning program will likely fail
  • Ensuring that learning is solving a business problem

  • Encouraging top-down involvement in learning programs
