10:45 AM - 11:45 AM Wednesday, March 28
Curation is a hot topic in learning. No longer is L&D expected to create all training materials. To remain competitive, you need to explore and leverage multiple types of training resources. But how do you find targeted content? What is the right mix of training resources? How do you decide what to include?
In this session, you’ll find out how New York Life Insurance Company resolved these questions and found content that aligned with business goals. You’ll get an inside look at their entire process, including how they collaborated with SMEs in defining a skill and competency; what processes they used to structure the design of their learning concept; the lessons they learned when searching for training assets; and how the structure has continued to evolve over time.

- What targeted learning content is, and how it benefits your learners
- How to structure learning content that follows specific design principles and also meets business goals
