Learning Technologies: What Managers Really Think

Owen Ferguson, Managing Director, GoodPractice

In the field of Learning and Development there are some well-established views and discussion points around learning technologies, but what about the people who decide how employees spend their time – managers? What do they think about learning tech, how do they react to it and use it themselves? This year’s research piece by GoodPractice and ComRes sets out to tackle this important, thorny issue, and comes up with some fascinating, provocative results. Join Owen Ferguson as he explores:

  • How useful do managers find different learning technologies?
  • ….. and how accessible do they find them?
  • Which learning options do managers turn to when they face specific workplace challenges?
  • Which learning options do managers turn to when they face specific workplace challenges?

Making personalized, collaborative learning a reality 
Joel Hellermark, CEO & Founder, Sana Labs 
Collaboration and personalisation are two trends that dominate contemporary thinking about workplace learning. 
Collaborative learning involves synchronous, interactive live sessions with groups of learners, and is powered by social dynamics and community. 
Personalization focuses on self-paced instruction that responds to the unique needs of every learner, and is powered and scaled by AI. 
Is it possible to combine these two? According to Joel it is. In this session, he will explore what it means to combine these two approaches in entirely new ways—using social dynamics to increase engagement while responding to each learner’s needs to improve learning outcomes. Join us to explore the exciting possibilities of personalized, collaborative learning.
