The Future of Learning: Changing Learner Behaviour with Microsoft
Learner behaviour is changing in new and interesting ways as technology continues to adapt and change the working environment.
L&D teams need to look beyond these individual micro-changes and instead look at the broader context of ‘learning in the flow of work’. As the flow of work changes towards highly integrated, connected and collaborative environments like Teams, learning will change with it. How can L&D keep up with this pace of change? What are the risks if they don’t?
In this webinar, Dan Fish, Director of Strategy at Go1, was joined by Nick Burnett from LearnTech Lab and Travis Smith from Microsoft to chat about the future of work, learning and Go1’s integration with Microsoft Teams.
Catch-up on what they had to say in the recording below:
