Designing for Modern Learning: Redefining L&Ds Approach for a Digital Age

Learning is no longer an activity or luxury that only occurs at specific stages in your life or career. With the digital revolution, learning has become immediate, real-time, and relevant. As a learning and development professional, you have likely confronted the digital learning revolution, but you are armed with instructional design models from the pre-digital world. 

Now, today’s digital universe has a learning design model to integrate both new technologies and tried-and-true learning methods into the learning experience design: learning cluster design.

In an energizing and engaging format, the presenters lay out a new learning design philosophy and model that is helping L&D professionals and organizations remain relevant, and even critical, by showing us how to design a set of multiple learning assets, available across the flow of work, to deliver performance goals on the job.

Join us with the incredible author Lisa M.D. Owens who co-wrote Designing for Modern Learning (Beyond ADDIE and SAM), a groundbreaking new book published by ATD Press in 2020. Lisa will be joined by Danielle Goldsmith, a Learning Cluster Design Group consultant.

Objectives of the Session:

  • Speak the new language of modern Learning & Development

  • Gain insights on a new learning design philosophy to more easily meet organizational needs

  • Visualize a strategy to more easily help learners learn when, where and how they need to learn

  • Integrate the Learning Cluster Design model with tried-and-true ID models
