2019 Learning Results and Trends (2019 L&D Global Sentiment Survey)

Donald H Taylor is a recognised commentator and organiser in the fields of workplace learning and learning technologies.

Donald will be sharing the survey results from his annual L&D Global Sentiment Survey on what L&D professionals think will be hot in 2019, with results both globally and from the Australasian sector. Attendees will receive a copy of the global report.

There are some interesting differences in NZ in trends compared to the rest of the world. Last year personalisation and adapative delivery topped the table, pushing collaborative and social learning into second place. Personalisation is hotter than ever thanks to the possibilities offered by algorithms and artificial intelligence. Microlearning was a hot topic for NZ but that does not mean it is well defined, understood or implemented. VR, AR and AI all featured highly. Are they mature enough to impact mainstream enterprise L&D in 2019?

Keynote Speaker Amy Brann, Synaptic Potential


The Human Tech Side of Digital Transformation – Boosting Performances with Change ReadinessNQ

• Understanding how the science of ChangeReadinessNQ works

• Applying the framework to assess your individual and organisational ChangeReadinessNQ

• Developing strategies for your employees to achieve great performance

ChangeReadinessNQ: Strengthening your organisation’s /employees ability to manage change and cultivate opportunity.

ChangeReadinessNQ is the capacity of your organisation – and in particular the employees working within your organisation – to intelligently anticipate, prepare for, manage and respond to change, proactively cultivating the resulting opportunities and mitigating potential negative impacts.

By identifying and assessing potential capability gaps in your employee’s ChangeReadinessNQ across its core pillars, you will be able to make informed decisions that will strengthen the change readiness of your organisation.

Amy will cover:

  • Why is ChangeReadinessNQ important?
  • What are the Core Pillars of ChangeReadinessNQ? (the Framework)
  • What drivers optimize ChangeReadinessNQ?

Successful Digital Transformation

What makes digital transformation succeed or fail? As 53% of business leaders feel their business faces digital disruption over the next 2 years, why do less than half of these have a formal digital transformation strategy in place?

Transformation, digital or not, creates anxiety and fear amongst employees – so getting it right is key to employee engagement as well as business productivity. If we are to make it work, we need to understand not just the technological side of change but the cultural side too.

In this session, Gary Cookson will explore how businesses can get digital transformation right, and explain 9 key tips that you can use to get your organisation ready.

How can Interactive Video support learning and performance improvement?

Interactive video often has a wow factor that’s hard to deny. What’s critical for L&D, though, is thinking beyond the wow factor to ensure interactive video truly supports learning and performance improvement. Interactive video offers a range of design models, each with different strengths. Understanding how to align those strengths to different learning needs simplifies your design process, reduces development costs, and produces the best results for your organization.

In this session, you’ll explore a range of interactive video options in order to build a reference framework. You’ll discover how these models can then be applied to different learning needs, contexts, and situations to take advantage of each model’s strengths. You will also walk through instructional design strategies for each model to help you begin your planning and design work. And you’ll hear a range of practical tips to help you make your designs come to life with the best possible results for your organization.

In this session, you will learn:

· About the design models commonly used for interactive video

· How design models can support different learning needs and contexts

· Instructional design and planning strategies for each design model

· Practical design and creation tips for interactive video that speed up the creation process and improve the learning experience
