2022 CLEAA Conference: Wayfinding – Digital Strategies for Hybrid work

Session #5:  The pandemic and new ways of working has accelerated the adoption and comfort with digital learning – and this together with the new digital and hybrid working rhythms presents learning practitioners with a new range of challenges when it comes to designing great learning experiences.

BSI has engaged in research and a series of thinktanks, defining the challenge of “digital overwhelm” and how to combat it, and the skills learning teams need, including the concept of “wayfinding” as a mindset to support L&D to conceive of new, digitally supported learning strategies that can ensure learning in the face of ambiguity and constant change.

Join Simon Dewar as he provides an update on current thinking, and case studies in learning design, as well as fresh thinking on the skills we need to set up our learners for success by harnessing digital technology.

Session Objectives

  • Define our current state and “digital overwhelm” causes, and solutions
  • Examine the skills L&D need to adopt to become “wayfinders” to design effective digitally enabled strategies
  • Review some case studies of what top organisations are doing in response to the above challenges
  • Leave with some principles and tips to guide your own journey in planning for the future
