W105 - Putting Learners in Control

Wednesday, February 06 | 10:15 AM - 11:15 AM | Room: 2A



Session Description:
With so many tools at our disposal, how do L&D professionals create effective learning ecosystems that meet the diverse needs of their learners? They need both microlearning and macrolearning to become highly effective continuous learners. In this session, you'll hear about a recent experience using a "jobs-to-be-done" perspective to develop a new learning resource that puts learners in control of where and how they're acquiring knowledge and skills. You'll discover the decisions and changes that were made in real time based on learners' reactions. You'll gain a deep understanding of how to include your learners in the design of new learning experiences that focus on the capabilities most important to them.

Application on the Job:
Take a “jobs-to-be-done” perspective to prioritize capabilities of an effective learning environment.
Gain a deep understanding of learners’ needs and motivations.
Design flexible learning experiences that help learners learn when, how, and what they want to learn.
