Digital Learning Trends in 2023

What’s new in learning and development in 2023? A whole lot. The impact of the pandemic is not over, but L&D practitioners world-wide are shifting away from the reaction to lockdown that we saw last year and are embracing new technologies, and one in particular – Artificial Intelligence.

L&D’s fascination with the promise of data, which seemed to have peaked in 2020, is back. In this webinar, Donald H. Taylor will look back over 10 years of the L&D Global Sentiment Survey to put the results for 2023 in context. Are we really heading into a new world of AI-driven L&D, or simply dazzled by new technology? And what about ideas that had seemed so hot in the past, like collaborative and coaching? – are they maintaining the strong showing of previous years?

In this session, Donald will explain the key themes in L&D that emerged from his survey, answered by over 3,000 people world-wide. He’ll look at major trends, geographical differences and why some ideas linger while others fade.

  • Technology’s return as a dominant theme in L&D’s thinking

  • The challenges we’re facing across the world

  • Persistent differences across geographies, and where they come from

  • How L&D seems easily distracted by online chatter

  • The five year bounce – how some ideas return, and others don’t
