501 Getting Started with Adaptive Learning

Wednesday, October 10, 2018 11:15 AM - 12:00 PM
Venue: McCormick Place West
Room: W194A

Are you stuck providing a one-size-fits-all training that really isn’t benefiting anyone? Too often, L&D must make a lose/lose decision and choose between building personalized experiences or providing something generic to the entire organization. Thankfully, evolutions in the application of data, instructional design and learning technology have made it possible for L&D to now provide right-size-fits-one support to every employee, even within the largest, most complex organizations. We’ll dissect the concept of adaptive learning and discuss the converging trends that are opening the door to a new form of personalized learning, including data, autonomy and microlearning. We’ll explore the types of data available that can enable adaptive experiences and demonstrate how learning designers can shift their development processes and build content that fits an adaptive model. Finally, we’ll discuss principles for enabling adaptive learners as well as maintaining an agile, responsive L&D team.
