E-Learning, MOOCs and the Future of IT Learning & Development

  • July 19, 2018

WITI and Pluralsight present a panel discussion on eLearning, MOOCs, and the future of IT Learning and Development.

A key to companies' future success will be in providing continuous learning options and instilling a culture of lifelong learning throughout the organization. In a recent McKinsey&Company survey, cultural change was ranked by companies across most sectors as the change most needed for developing the workforce of the future.

Basic organizational setup will change, with a strong shift toward cross-functional and team-based work and an emphasis on agility. More than one in five survey respondents said that introducing more agile ways of working will be a high-priority organizational change, and a similar proportion described more cross-functional collaboration as a key going forward. Unlike traditional hierarchies, which are mainly designed for stability, agile organizations are designed for both stability and dynamism. They typically consist of a network of teams and are notable for rapid learning and fast decision cycles. Fostering environments, experiences and dynamics across the workforce will be critical in developing the workforce of the future. We'll provide tips on: - Taking responsibility for continuous personal and professional development - Discovering the brilliance across your human capital - Creating like-minded communities through learning hubs and experiences that resonate - Ideas to take back to your organization to accelerate women in technology efforts Sponsored by:
