How Technology Helps Modern Training Professionals Deliver More Faster

2021-08-04T23:47:02-04:00

Just as we were faced with a digital learning pivot in March of 2020, modern L&D professionals are starting to look at how the learning programs we created over the last 16+ months will fare as we navigate the “new normal'' of training and developing a hybrid workforce.  While this looks different for each organization, and there certainly isn’t a “one size fits all” approach, through our research we have found that choosing the right technology alongside a learning model that develops learners in the flow of work allows modern learning professionals to deliver more learning content, faster than they could before.

How LCD Model Helps Make Smart Use of Artificial Intelligence

2021-08-04T23:47:03-04:00

Learning and development technology is moving at a rapid pace, especially with the pivot to virtual-based learning in 2020. Now, in 2021, for most organizations artificial intelligence accelerated from a distant dream to a more current, and needed, reality.  Driven by the data source it has been programmed to store, AI gives machines the ability to recognize, respond to, and learn from inputs.  Here’s why AI is important for learning:  We know that a one-size fits all approach does not meet the needs of modern learners Yet, we often struggle with how to surround each learner with the learning assets that [...]

Co-Facilitation: A Modern Learning Strategy for Remote Training

2021-08-04T23:47:03-04:00

Modern learning, as we share in the principles of the Learning Cluster Design model, centers on creating meaningful learning assets that surround a learner in their moment of learning need. While the model looks at what can be done to meet learners beyond one-and-done training events, live face-to-face (whether in-person or virtual), can prove to be a valuable and important asset for many people (including L&D professionals) along their learning journey. With the sudden shift to remote work (and learning) one year ago, many L&D professionals were faced with converting their full-day, in-person L&D programming into virtual learning sessions, and in [...]

Learning Design in COVID Times: How It’s More Than E-Learning

2021-08-04T23:52:56-04:00

When you think of “converting to modern learning,” what comes to mind for you? Is it abandoning one-and-done training events for a strictly online/eLearning experience? If that was your thought, you’re not alone. Most L&D organizations, as they started facing the pandemic last year, scrambled to turn every face to face training program into an e-learning. But that isn't modern. Nor is it sufficient to make a business-impacting difference in talent's capability. Traditionally, L&D has overwhelmingly focused on new moments of learning need, and that has typically manifested itself in the sole development of one-and-done formal learning events. Every topic is [...]

There are two reasons why people learn: 1) because they are told to and 2) because they choose to. Historically, learning and development teams have been focused on delivering the former. The highest priorities tend to be those that mitigate the biggest business risks: compliance, performance, leadership, management, and general onboarding. It’s all about telling people what they need to know to be most successful in their jobs and when and where they can get that training. Now, it’s time to retool how we train employees. In addition to being company-centric— delivering what needs to be known (i.e. company priorities)—it’s time [...]
