How Technology is Changing the Future of Learning

Description of the Program: 

This session will touch on multiple areas of the ASTD Competency Model, including:
• Learning Technologies
• Training Delivery
• Instructional Design
• Performance Improvement
• Knowledge Management
• Evaluating Learning Impact
• Managing Learning Programs

Technology is advancing at an ever-increasing rate. New technologies are introduced to organizations almost every day, including many used to support learning and performance. In the last decade, learning professionals have needed to incorporate many new technologies into their learning strategy, including simulations, virtual classrooms, mobile learning, and more. Keeping pace with these new technologies, deciding which ones to implement, and balancing new tools with existing technologies is a growing challenge. Training professionals need to understand how learning technologies are evolving and how future technologies will impact and benefit their organizations.
Join us for a discussion exploring the future of learning technology, and learn about the opportunities (and risks) that training professionals will need to factor into their design, development, and training strategy in the near future.

During this session, you will learn:
• How technology is redefining the expectations of training
• The new competencies that training professionals need to add to their skill sets
• How organizations are using technology for training innovation
• How to use technology to provide minimally disruptive performance support
• Ways to minimize the risk of falling behind advancements in learning technology
