So, what’s trending at ATD2017 ?
1 - Mobile first
Mobile has not only allowed us to connect with the many, it is also an opportunity for learners to pull learning content anytime, anywhere. And yet, it remains an underused medium to reach out to learners.
The good news is that we see improvement: businesses are more and more valuing and investing in mobile technologies connected to learning.
2 - Micro learning
3 - Embrace agility
We need to respond to the fast changing context. We can therefore no longer afford to waste too much time developing learning content. Agile is a time boxed iterative development process that focuses on breaking down larger requests into smaller deliverables. An agile design is no longer an ICT-only approach. It is becoming/has become an HR matter also. I followed 2 sessions about agility at ICE; one of Torrance learning (which was more conceptual) and another great hands-on session from Starbucks. An interview and blog post about the Starbucks approach will we posted soon.
4 - Content curation
Mobile…faster…agility…changing environment… Learning content is like a spinning wheel: it comes from everywhere! Where to start? What to retain? What is junk? HOW TO SURVIVE in the content jungle?
Speaker David Kelly states that curation is becoming more and more common in the learning industry. “Unfortunately, most learning professionals do not understand what it is, let alone how to leverage it in their organizations. And yet, in an age of exponentially increasing information, the need for quality curation has never been greater” dixit Kelly.
Curation is so much more than just leaving a trace. Qualitative curation exists of 4 parts: Listen, analyse,share and purpose. Check out Kelly’s website for the session slides as well as his curation of ATD2017. PS mister Kelly, thanks for mentioning my blog site as part of the ATD curation page :)
