One of the challenges faced by trainers and instructional designers is their lack of real-world experience of the content they are trying to train people on. There is a huge gap between the knowledge and information and its application. The gap is fueled by the sheer volume, high speed and ongoing change of massive knowledge to be learned by workers.

As a consequence courses are boring, lack real-life applications and irrelevant. To arrest the decline in the quality of training programs, companies are shifting training efforts to curated learning. Trainers are also shifting careers from being designers and trainers to becoming curators.

Topics covered:
  • How to gauge your company’s readiness for curated learning
  • Conduct an inventory of your trainer versus curator skills
  • How to start curated learning
  • Where to find the opportunities to make a shift in careers
  • How to build skills and which ones create immediate impacts
  • What are hi-tech and low-tech tools for curated leaning

Attend the webinar and obtain a virtual “sandbox” or “playground” where you can test and implement curated learning.
