In this novel 2-week long modern learning experience, you’ll walk away with a learning cluster for a current work project.


“The program was very well-developed and delivered. Every element was explained, demonstrated, practiced, and discussed, which is rare, and had such intentional impact. Probably the best workshop/learning I’ve ever attended.”

2018 Participant, Washington D.C.

“Loved how hands on and interactive the program was. I got a lot out of applying the process to one of my programs AND receiving feedback. I’m taking back a lot of valuable information to my organization that will pay dividends in helping us revamp our program.

What if you could walk away with a learning cluster for a current project and learn the model at the same time? This highly social and practice-oriented learning experience uses novel platforms to build your or your team’s capability to designing learning for your customers across the flow of work.

In a traditional L&D world where we are used to designing a single learning asset, be it a class or a set of videos or an e-learning, we miss the boat with modern learners and our business stakeholder. Learners today need to learn both in and out of the flow of work. Most organizations leave it up to the learners to navigate resources in the flow of work. With Learning Cluster Design as a new tool in your L&D toolkit, you’ll empower learners — and business results — like never before.

With a small cohort, you will go on a 2-week journey to learn the model, the Five Actions, the Tools, and apply to a current training project you bring to the course. Learning & neuroscience tells us that the best way to learn involves a combination of self-reflection, social learning, and learning by doing. This course, facilitated by an LCD model expert, combines all three for an invaluable, engaging experience.

It’s not often that a learning experience helps you get your work done as well. You’ll walk away wanting to come back and have your teammates on the same page, creating learning clusters for all your training initiatives!
