Do you want to design and develop engaging learning experiences in an online environment that shift behaviour and improve business performance?

Are you ready to seize this opportunity?

Despite our interest in technology and learning in the flow of work, over 55% of formal learning was still being done in classrooms in early 2020. Without access to classrooms, Learning and Development professionals have been forced to take learning online.

Learning and Development teams have helped organisations adapt rapidly to changing conditions and people to adjust to new working arrangements. The barriers to learning innovation are lower than ever. Now is the time to engage business stakeholders, embed good design practices, work in agile ways and use technology more effectively.

L&D professionals have long aspired to have a more significant impact and create more value for their organisations and the people working in them. There is an opportunity to reposition learning as an essential high value partner right now. Are you ready to seize this opportunity?

Make the shift to enable learning in a virtual environment QUICKLY & SMARTLY with the support of a seasoned professional.

Rethink Learning will accelerate your shift in mindset, skills, practices and tools to quickly design and develop effective learning solutions for the virtual environment.  Apply it to your work immediately and make the shift far quicker than figuring it out on your own.

What ReThink Learning participants say

Over the course of the programme I redesigned a solution that could be implemented straight away and learned a new process for analysis and a new process for design, both of which I can start using immediately and which will help me create well thought out and sensible, human centred learning solutions.

Effective feedback in a virtual environment

The business need is to improve performance. To achieve this line managers must have frequent effective growth-oriented feedback conversations with their direct reports in a virtual environment.
