[Sept Dialogue Recap] Motivating Change When Stakeholders Say the Org is “Good Enough” As Is

A few weeks ago, we had a great Modern Learning Monthly Dialogue where we talked about how to break through a very particular resistance to change: being “too successful”.  Many times, our stakeholders can hold the mentality that “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it” and that gets in the way of evolutions we want to make to learning. Especially when trying to introduce modern learning approaches, we can get stuck by the expectation that all learning is training.  People know us for what we’ve always done and might not see a reason for us to do something new, especially if [...]

LCD in Action: Professional Association ESG & Finance Examples

This month, we had the pleasure of not just one, but three leaders from the Association of International Certified Public Accountants (AICPA) share their incredible work on the LCD model.

Dialogue Replay: Lavinia Mehedintu and the Evolution of Curation

At our July Modern Learning Monthly Dialogue, we had the pleasure of hosting Lavinia Mehedintu, founder of the L&D magazine Offbeat.Works, to engage us in a discussion on Curation. Curation is a topic that initially sounds simple - what came to mind for me are the frequent “listicles” we often see - but the more you dig into it, the more you find a complex topic for learning creators. Just like LCD's idea of designing and delivering multiple learning assets, or learning clusters, what sounds simple isn’t as easy in practice and comes with a lot of nuances. Lavinia is the queen of modern curation [...]

This is important because I work with leaders and individuals all the time, all over the world who are trying [...]

Getting Buy-in to Chunk Mandatory Live Content

Hi LCD Community - Have you been faced with wanting to chunk a mandatory live training, but received pushback from your organization due to a preexisting roadmap? This week, we’re answering that very question that came to us from a Senior Learning Advisor who joined a past Public Practicum. “I'm currently working on breaking down in smaller chunks some e-learning elements, but today some trainers in a train the trainer virtual class asked me: how is it possible to chunk up the content of a (mandatory) live virtual classroom when the organization must respect a rigid roadmap for the training delivery?” The first step [...]

How to Market Your Modern Learning Initiatives

It’s difficult to deliver a new learning product that no one expects. How do you manage the change of moving to modern learning? During ATD in May and throughout our Modern Learning Monthly Dialogues, we continue to hear the challenges you are facing in shifting your organization to modern learning. We didn't realize we were opening Pandora's Box. Throughout our many conversations, there have been a number of themes that have emerged: How are we in L&D perceived in the organization? How do we drive awareness of learning assets? How do we cut through the noise of all the other communication? [...]

New Learning Assets to Support You!

Learning Assets for  Your Modern Learning Journey Thank you for being a part of the conversation around what the modern learner needs and how learning design professionals can best support learners. No longer is the day of one-and-done or one-size-fits all going to be effective in any learning environment. Learning creation needs to be different, tailored to the learners. This difference in approach also means incorporating a variety of means for delivering those learning assets.
