One of the hot topics in corporate education and training today is learning 'in the flow of work’. This approach allows employees to access and complete digital learning in the applications they use on a daily basis (e.g. Microsoft Teams), without interrupting their flow of work by switching between applications. But how do you bring this strategy to life within your L&D efforts in a way that is seamless while still creating effective learning outcomes?
Joining Go1’s Global Learning Strategist Caroline Brant is a lineup of L&D talent not to be missed. We brought together Global Industry Analyst Josh Bersin, Microsoft L&D Manager Jane Hourigan, and Director of Learning Brandon Carson of Delta to talk about how learners access and consume training, and what that means for L&D professionals.
