Learning in the Age of Immediacy: How the Digital Transformation Transforms Training (Brandon Carson – Delta Airlines)

This session highlights five technologies that are driving the digital transformation and bringing disruption to the business of learning. We will discuss practical strategies for understanding how these edge technologies can integrate into learning strategies.


Bringing Creative L&D to Different Industries: How We Transformed Traditional Training (Katrina Baker, L&D Manager, Cooley LLP)

Session description: Delivering great content is hard enough, but it’s even harder when your learners are incredibly busy and spread across the globe! How do you keep the attention of an audience that isn’t required to listen to you? And how do you bring innovative L&D to industries that continue to rely on traditional training techniques? This session provides miniature case studies of how forward-thinking organizations in multiple industries transformed their traditional training programs. You’ll learn how classroom training can be transformed by virtual and interactive learning tools, how the function of L&D can be turned on its head to meet business needs, and how L&D programs provide personalized service to global audiences through technology. Find out how to use learning technology to support real results, and how to create a blended learning program that reinforces learner skills. These are the honest stories of L&D programs that dared to be different.
