In recent years, a lot of ink has been spilled regarding the idea of the “Modern Learner.” In this webinar, we will discuss whether the so-called “Modern Learner” is really that much different from any other learner.
The answer is yes…and no…and that has implications for Learning and Development (L&D) professionals. Luckily guidance on how to best cater to the modern learner lies within the learning sciences.
Hence, once they are coupled with technological affordances, engagement strategies and creative collaborations, foundations for an effective training program are established.
Join us for this complimentary training industry webinar, with learning architects from across the globe. Learn from their insights on how they have been designing and delivering meaningful experiences for the modern learner, enhancing training outcomes through the use of appropriate techniques in different contexts.
