Three key learning trends for 2022 – what to know and the myths to avoid

What should L&D professionals be aware of in 2022? There’s plenty that’s new to discuss, but what’s real and what’s hype?

In this session, Cornerstone’s Mike Bollinger and Donald H Taylor of the Learning Technologies Conference discuss three areas where L&D needs to distinguish fact from fiction.

They’ll explore three key learning trends for 2022, looking at what’s changed, the role technology has to play, and how L&D professionals will need to adjust to make the most of the opportunities here, and avoid the inevitable pitfalls.

What you’ll learn:

  • Why predicting the future is tough, and how wildly wrong some attempts have been in the past
  • Why much of the noise around skills is less a revolution and more of an evolution, and what that means for your reskilling and upskilling programmes
  • How technological solutions are only ever part of the solution, and many under-serve the large numbers of deskless workers
  • How the L&D profession is challenged as never before, and what it can do to support workplace learning without being a bottleneck

How to launch a skills-forward talent strategy

It’s been said that 2020 brought about three years of digital transformation in three months. The initial phases of that transformation centered on adapting to the dramatic and sudden changes thrust upon us, such as enabling remote and distributed workforces to simply work, communicate, and collaborate. What we know now is that this change is far more permanent than many expected. In today’s environment of unrelenting business transformation, roles are shifting quickly, and skills are becoming obsolete faster. Your organization needs to identify, acquire, and develop the skills needed to transform, compete in new markets, and thrive. So how do you upskill your people in a scalable way that keeps you competitive rather than constantly playing catch-up? In short, by providing career growth opportunities. But often, employees think it’s easier to find a new job outside their company than inside. And in many organizations, there are internal cultures holding back career growth and internal mobility. Developing a skills-forward talent strategy can help you unite people growth with business success. This guide outlines four key steps involved in this strategy. Let’s dive in.
