Digital learning after ‘the Reset’ with Myles Runham and Toby Harris from eLN Industry Partner Filtered

29th May, 2020



In the early 2000s, authors spoke of the ‘unfinished revolution‘ in education. In many ways, the Covid-19 crisis and shutdown has completed that revolution. All learning must be virtual. All skills must be developed without physical contact. No one can trust in a quality in-person experience to shift mindsets or deliver results. It’s likely that these changes will stick around once the lockdowns are lifted as we all learn the benefits of less travel. Josh Bersin has described it as ‘the reset‘.

It’s a time of great potential for digital learning designers and digital communicators in general. Now we are all mission critical. But the economic catastrophe means that life won’t be easy for anyone. Join this webinar with Myles and Toby as they reflect on the perils and promise of the post-Covid future for digital learning designers.

Key questions and topics we’ll discuss:

* What can we learn from the experience of the last few months?

* What might we miss whilst ‘digital first’ is a default?

* The importance of ‘observe don’t ask’ – digital data and learner feedback

* Where does future value lie – what about supporting ‘the return to work’?

* What might be the most important values of future work: trust, purpose, flexibility…?
