ECO514 Is Your Ecosystem Ready for the Next Generation?

10:45 AM - 11:45 AM Thursday, March 17

Ecosystem - People


Employees today don’t just use the Internet—they live in it! And they expect their online learning experience on the job to match their online experience in their digital, highly connected life. Is your ecosystem up to the challenge, or does it seem boring and limited to your learners? We’ve been reading about the wave of new employees in the workforce for years, but have we built the learning and performance support environment that will engage them and help them thrive?

In this interactive session, we will explore how the brain operates and how it expects to seek out, receive, and apply information. Then you’ll learn about specific ways to evaluate your current ecosystem and identify ways to tailor it to meet the needs of your connected employees. You will be able to immediately use this information to evaluate your own ecosystem’s readiness and the five things you can do right now to make it more effective for all.

In this session, you will learn:

  • How people are learning from YouTube and other social media
  • What employees today expect and require from their corporate learning ecosystem
  • How to evaluate your current ecosystem’s readiness
  • Five things you should start doing now to make your ecosystem more effective

Novice to advanced designers, developers, project managers, managers, and directors.
