L&D Trends From The Real-World Challenge Perspective: Insights From Your Peers Working In The Craft

Constant pivots in the business. Learners with screen fatigue. Competing for learner attention. Lack of stakeholder empathy for essential L&D practices. Reduced capacity (the Great Resignation has hit L&D, too!). Multidisciplinary collaboration that doesn't go smoothly. The sudden imperative to upskill L&D (and everyone else) in business acumen and strategic thinking.

Sound familiar?

Our team at SweetRush gathered insights from your peers in the L&D community—not about the trending technologies and techniques, but about the common challenges everyone in the field is facing, and the pivots and solutions emerging to meet them. It's a human-centered approach to trends that we think you'll find interesting and valuable.

But this session is not about lecturing you on how to do things. We're more interested in having a collaborative, generative, interactive conversation that helps us all move our craft forward. You have ideas, and we do, too. So, let's grab a coffee and come together for an hour to discuss these challenges.

During this session, we'll share our hot-off-the-presses L&D Trends Report and some of the interesting findings, and together we'll interactively unpack one of our toughest learning design challenges.

Join us for a lively session with a multidisciplinary panel of top-tier experts in our craft!

During this session, we will discuss:

  • What are the top trending real-world challenges facing L&D professionals according to new research by SweetRush
  • What solutions are emerging to address new challenges in the field of L&D and the craft of learning experience design
  • How your peers are thinking about these challenges—and what they're curious about experimenting with to move our craft forward
Everyone's pivoting. Everything's changing. It's disruptive, people are leaving, there are new demands on L&D. How are we solving these issues?
