ECO1013 Leveraging the New Learning Ecosystem

10:00 AM - 11:00 AM Friday, March 18

Ecosystem - Processes


Traditional approaches to learning and development are no longer responsive enough to continuously build and refresh the capabilities and skills that organizations and employees need. So workers and business leaders are increasingly looking beyond what their L&D departments have to offer. And those learners are choosing to learn and develop in different ways from a much more diverse range of sources. Meanwhile, most L&D infrastructure is still geared for the same old thing: creating, managing, and delivering formal training.

In this session, you will be provided interactive and concrete survey data on how workers learn. You will learn three ways to connect L&D requirements with learner expectations: priorities, investments, and methods. You will see why it is critical to attract and retain the best and brightest and why there is a great need for employers to create an atmosphere where continued L&D can take place.

In this session, you will learn:

  • How employers really learn and what they want
  • What the wisdom of the crowd can teach L&D professionals about learning
  • Three ways to connect L&D requirements with learner expectations: priorities, investments, and methods
  • Three steps to leverage the new learning ecosystem to make L&D more efficient, effective, and agile

Novice to advanced project managers, managers, and directors.

Technology discussed in this session:
TED Talks videos; consumer social networks like YouTube, Twitter, Facebook, and LinkedIn; MOOCs; and the top 25 tools employees use for learning.
