Designing for Modern Learning: Redefining L&D’s Approach for a Digital Age

Crystal Kadakia

July 9, 2021 at 8:00AM


Our profession is faced with an exciting challenge to embrace and navigate a new landscape. L&D’s world continues to change, yet, based on recent surveys, L&D can’t seem to satisfy the C-Suite or our learners.

The book, “Designing for Modern Learning: Beyond ADDIE and SAM” (ATD press, 2020) is helping L&D meet these challenges in the digital age. In this interactive webinar, hear from author Crystal Kadakia how to modernize your learning programs, as they describe the Learning Cluster Design model using images and stories. Crystal will describe what has changed in our landscape, and how that impacts L&D. She will describe the OK-Learning Cluster Design model, and an overview of how the model helps L&D modernize with less stress and more results. Case studies and stories make this session a favorite among ATD Chapters.
