The Modern Workplace Is Rapidly Changing
The emergence of new and smarter technologies has greatly impacted the way people work and learn. Gone are the days when training is the be-all-end-all for learning and skills development. Traditional training methods are just not sufficient to support today's workers’ demand for instant knowledge and expertise while at work.
The Challenge for L&D Practitioners
Trainers, designers, developers, facilitators, and leaders all face the challenge of how to apply new learning designs that go beyond content and are work-focused. Rapid changes in enabling technologies and demand in the workplace for learning approaches that incorporate learning while working. Studies have shown that more than 70% of organizational learning comes from working and collaborating with others. This is exactly the reason why continuous learning thrives in today’s environment.
Continuous Learning Requires Strategies and Models
Effective learning design supports advances in cognitive skills, critical thinking, problem-solving, troubleshooting, process improvement, innovation development, assisted technologies, analytics, and agile work processes and mindsets. It focuses on fostering employees’ thinking skills through activities that are integrated into their daily work routine. Its learning design is about work in motion. It is a learning design that goes beyond instruction to enable agile learning that accelerates results. 
Trainers, Designers and Leaders’ New Role and Function
Trainers, designers, and leaders must nurture and implement continuous learning cultures, systems, and methods in the workplace.

Participants will undergo three simultaneous and concurrent processes.

Participants will study six (6) work situations and experience first-hand different models of Continuous Learning at Work. Each situation has a set of experience-based activity, a short video, a small project, and references. (Six hours of participant time)

Process # 2 - Project Mentoring

Throughout the workshop, participants will collaborate with mentors on their projects. The development of the small projects are assisted by the mentors. The communication is done through an online collaboration tool. (The hours are included in Process #1)

Process # 3 - Virtual Conversation Webinar

Participants will join three conversation sessions for an exchange of project application insights and summarization. (Two hours per session, a total of six hours).
