Envisioning the future of organizational learning and training calls on learning leaders to artfully apply business savvy, learning know-how, and sheer imagination. When the Association for Talent Development (ATD) and the Institute for Corporate Productivity (i4cp) partnered to explore the topic of learners of the future, a robust 59 percent of learning and business leaders surveyed said that in 2020, Learning will take place in ways we can't imagine today. Yet only 38 percent said their learning functions would be ready to effectively meet their organizations' learning needs five years from now.

Getting the learning and development (L&D) function ready for both the challenges and opportunities that lie ahead involves many considerations: Will tomorrow's learners arrive in workplaces with solid knowledge and skills employers need? Can organizations act now to influence what educational institutions teach those future workers? How will learning be delivered in 2020? How can L&D support, track, leverage the spread of collaborative and informal learning through social media and mobile technologies? Will the future see learning management systems go away?

This webcast will explore these questions by providing findings from the new ATD and i4cp research report Learners of the Future: Taking Action Today to Prevent Tomorrow's Training Crisis. It will also take a close look at how learning leaders at leading organizations are preparing now for these upcoming challenges through innovative programs and partnerships and the use of new technologies
