Ever feel as though technology-driven change for change's sake has about as much substance as the emperor's new clothes? With the advent of social media, virtual classrooms, mobile learning, and more, we are being asked to create a blended learning design that takes advantage of all the future has to offer.  But which of these tools are a fad, and which are here for the long-run?  When should each be used?  How do we manage the natural objections that will arise from changing the learning paradigm?

As organizations deal with these questions, they will naturally turn to training professionals as the experts – unfortunately, we are often no further ahead of the curve then the rest of the organization.  This session will focus on the key trends in learning, as anticipated by leaders in the T&D field, and provide strategic advice on how, when, and why should incorporate these trends into our training plans.

Join us to: 

-Identify the key trends that will impact the design, delivery, and 'consumption' of training during the next five years, and discuss the advantages and pitfalls of each trend

-Explore resources and exploit opportunities that will help ensure you are seen as a thought leader in your organization

-Manage objections concerning the adoption of new techniques and technologies
