The future of the Learning and Development industry was the hop topic at this year’s CIPD L&D Show at Olympia London.
People from across the industry joined the discussion on how to keep pace with the changing world of work.
We interviewed seven leading figures at the event about ways to achieve change, as part of Towards Maturity’s #MakeItHappen campaign.
The initiative is about focusing on one key area of action in 2016.
"L&D could become extinct"
Teresa Rose, Product Expert in Digital Learning for the energy company, E.On kicked off the discussion by defining modern learners and how we need to respond to their changing needs:
"Everyone starts with a solution without understanding what the problem is"
Paul Morgan from Telefonica UK (O2) helps you understand the skills L&D professionals need to improve their learners’ experience.
"For too many people the mindset is that learning equals training"
Leading learning expert, Jane Hart from the Centre for Learning and Performance Technologies explains why L&D needs to be aware that learning is happening all the time in many different ways.
“Become a modern learner yourself”
Andy Lancaster, Head of Learning and Development Content at the CIPD talks about the shift in L&D and how, as learning professionals, we need to change the way we learn.
“Mistakes are the greatest learning opportunity to utilise”
Dr Itiel Dror from University College London talks about using cognitive neuroscience can help to maximise learning. He runs through the basics of using a cognitive-informed approach and explains why failure is so important in learning.
“Look at how learners learn in their personal lives”
Mike Booth, Learning Technologies Manager at Vodafone shares his tips on how to better understand learners and design learning experiences to meet their needs.
“Change only happens when we take action”
Laura Overton, founder and CEO of Towards Maturity concluded the #MakeItHappen interviews at the CIPD L&D Show 2016. She explains how the Towards Maturity Benchmark can help you identify the change that is right for you.
