The Evolution of Learning & Development

The Evolution of Learning & Development


Instructor-led Training Course


There has never been a better and more exciting time to be involved in the field of learning and development! Learn about the future trends that are starting to influence learning and development as they relate to training delivery and structure of the training function.



Technology is fundamentally transforming the L&D function and is leading to changes in the way that learning is conceptualized within organizations. The concept itself of a “career” is being shaken to its core, driving companies towards “always-on” learning experiences that allow employees to build skills quickly, easily, and on their own terms. And, in the future, the pace at which learning will evolve will only become more rapid.

This highly interactive training workshop provides a focused, 2-day insight into the future of L&D as it intersects with technology. It sheds light on how the technology of today (and tomorrow) can enable effective delivery of the L&D service, together with an overview of how this technology may be selected and implemented into your organisation successfully. It, also, throws the spotlight on the various trends that are starting to impact the future of learning.

This course is packed with case studies and critical insights into the learning technologies and trends that are impacting the future of L&D and is delivered by a world-class trainer.
