Supporting Employee Development Through Personalized Learning
Date: Thursday, June 13, 2019
Time: 2:00 PM ET
Employees are tired of the traditional one-size-fits-all learning experience. In a culture that values the importance of customization we need to adapt our programs to suit learners’ needs. By personalizing learning, we can empower our teams to grow and adapt to a continuously changing work environment. This growth benefits the individual who is taking a course and their entire organization, as these employees will be engaged and have an increased skillset that can be directly applied to their work.
At the end of this webinar, you will be able to:
- Define personalized learning
- Outline the importance of offering learners a personalized experience
- Incorporate elements of personalized learning into your courses
