The Future of Digital Learning: What to Expect in 2024 (EMEA Focused)

Get ready for the future of learning.

Don’t miss this webinar with long-time L&D expert Donald H. Taylor and OpenSesame’s Mehdi Tounsi. In this jam-packed session, they discuss the key themes that emerged from the 2024 L&D Global Sentiment Survey, now in its 11th year, answered by thousands of L&D professionals worldwide. 

Major trends to cover include:

  • Why AI is here to stay – and why 2024 is a crucial year for L&D

  • The post-pandemic effect: have we become less humane?

  • This year’s other major trends: skills and data

  • The impact of geography on our thinking

  • The key challenges L&D is facing right now

Curious what regional differences exist when it comes to what’s hot in L&D across EMEA? The presenters will hone in on the differences between key representative countries, looking at what their survey responses reveal about the concerns and interests that separate them, and the things that are top-of-mind for everyone, everywhere.
