As a learning professional, what are your predictions for learning in the future or how learning professionals should be designing learning?

Learning is no longer an activity or luxury that only occurs at specific stages in your life or career. With the digital revolution, learning has become immediate, real-time, and relevant. As a learning and development professional, you’ve likely confronted the digital learning revolution, but you are armed with instructional design models from the pre-digital world. Now, today’s digital universe has a learning design model to integrate both new technologies and tried-and-true learning methods into the learning experience design: learning cluster design.

This model empowers the revolution of the training industry for our Digital Age by showing L&D how to design a set of multiple learning assets, available across the flow of work, to deliver a performance goal on the job.

Our profession is faced with an exciting challenge to embrace and navigate a new landscape. Join us as we talk with the incredible authors and TD professionals, Crystal Kadakia and Lisa M.D. Owens. They wrote "Designing for Modern Learning (Beyond ADDIE and SAM)", a groundbreaking new book published by ATD Press on June 30th.
