#GuildChat for 4/26/19: The Digital Transformation of Learning

Our next #GuildChat takes place Friday, April 26th at 11am PT / 2pm ET. Our topic for this week’s chat is The Digital Transformation of Learning.

Digital Transformation is quite the buzz today. It has many definitions but generally it’s seen as the effort by mostly large companies to increase efficiencies and get closer to consumers through digital  technologies. What does this effort mean for organizational learning?


L&D is directed by the needs of the organizations it serves and will move as the business moves. As the world of work transforms to greater efficiencies and connections, what will be the role of organizational learning? Similarly, as business transforms through technology, in what ways will of has L&D mirrored the changes taking place and what will future evolution look like for organizational learning?

Join us this week as we look closer at digital transformation and its impact on L&D.

Q5 Between when you started in L&D to now, what are some of the ways you’ve seen digital transformation shift the work you do?
Q6 As L&D evolves, what are the best ways to move its own people forward?
Q7 Are there aspects of what we do in L&D that will stay constant, regardless of how digital or analog the systems we operate in are? Why or why not?
Q8 Which technologies do you think are poised to bring the greatest change to L&D? How so?
