The evolution of learning and providing personalized learning experiences were key themes at Learning 2018.
Over the past two and a half days at Elliott Masie’s Learning 2018 conference in Orlando, we’ve had the opportunity to sit in on some amazing sessions and listen to some of the most passionate people in corporate learning. Yes, there continues to be challenges, from scalability to data and analytics and understanding where technology will take us in the next couple of years, but there is a desire to work together and come up with innovative solutions for learning and development.
Here are some of the key themes discussed at Learning 2018 throughout the week:
