Right Size Fits One

Getting Started with Adaptive Learning

with JD Dillon

Wednesday, MARCH 13, 2019

New England Donor Services

60 1st Ave


6:00pm – 8:30pm

L&D professionals are often forced to make a difficult choice: support the specific needs of individual employees or provide generic training to the entire company. Unfortunately, due to resource limitations and the pace of business, scale almost always wins. This fosters a one-size-fits-all approach to learning that fails to engage employees, falls short of driving business results and brings the value of L&D into question. In order to meet the needs of today’s employees, L&D must become capable of providing right-fit solutions at the scale of modern business.

This persistent challenge along with advancements in workplace data and technology have led to the emergence of adaptive learning. This represents a tremendous opportunity for L&D, but it also comes with considerable challenges. Not only must L&D evolve their practices to enable adaptive learning experiences, but they must also get past the industry hype to discover critical fundamental principles.

This session will demystify the concept of adaptive learning. We’ll dissect the converging forces that are transforming the workplace learning experience, including data, technology and microlearning. We’ll show you how to capture the data needed to create adaptive learning experiences. We’ll demonstrate how you can shift your design practices in order to build content to fit adaptive model. We'll share stories from organizations who are successfully applying adaptive learning to solve meaningful business challenges. Finally, we’ll discuss the importance of enabling adaptive employees as well as an agile, proactive L&D team.

We hope to see you on March 13th. Register Now!
