The LCD Fundamentals Course

What is the OK-LCD Model?

Ready to formally upskill in the LCD model?

It’s great to be inspired by the book, Designing for Modern Learning, or learn about the model from a peer.

Individuals who go further to build capability in the LCD model stand out amongst their peers for jobs and for growing up the career ladder.

Why? It’s simple facts. According to Training Industry’s research:

  • 70% of learning leaders believe that utilizing more than one modality is crucial for training.
  • 52% of training programs use between 3 to 6 modalities in training their employees.
  • 30% of learning leaders provide some form of customization in training programs offered.
  • Employees found on-the-job training (82%), on-the-job coaching (19%), and informal social learning (71%) to be the most effective training methods.

In other words, EVERYTHING the LCD model trains you how to do.

And get this:

Virtual instructor-led training and webinars are often used but found to be less useful by employees.

Furthermore, as AI advances, the content creation part of L&D’s job is becoming increasingly less valuable.

The Fundamentals of LCD course is a first step to building a strategic learning competency that allows you to handle more complex learning initiatives with ease, consistency, and quality.

Is it time to reskill? You bet it is.
