When it comes to remote workforce development, virtual training is a "must." However, in order to train and retain talent effectively, you need something more than just a strategy or a plan. More precisely, L&D is a science with a lot of branches, as well as scientific principles. That is, by focusing on and applying certain principles, you can offer a meaningful experience to your learners. So, which scientific principles are relevant for remote workforce training? Join MindSpring in this session and get your answers now! The event is sponsored by eLearning Industry.

Embracing Remote Working Challenges: How To Launch Learning Experiences Built On Solid Learning Science

Companies not offering remote opportunities are struggling to retain and attract good workers. Flexibility is key, but does the time-tested learning science support virtual learning experiences designed exclusively for remote positions? This webinar examines the essential application of scientific disciplines when creating virtual learning experiences for a remote workforce. We’ll discuss how elements from different branches of learning science contribute to an experience that helps learners thrive in their remote roles.

This webinar will explore a learning fable featuring AshCom. The company is fictional, but the learning challenges faced by Kathryn, AshCom’s CLO, and her team are real and commonly shared by learning teams in large organizations. Members of the AshCom learning team will present a daily lunch-and-learn series on these branches of learning science as they explore how to best apply these principles to their remote workers.

During this session, you will learn:

  • The essential elements of six important learning sciences.
  • The key impact that each of these sciences has on a remote learner.
  • How to practically apply solid learning science to create a successful learning experience.
Learning science + remote work = exciting virtual learning experiences!
