Connected learning

6 July 2022 by Alison Newman

DWG’s new research report Connected learning. How the digital workplace supports the learning organization. covers what digital workplace teams need to know about how Learning & Development (L&D) is carried out across the digital workplace.

The evolution of various technologies is driving changes in how employees learn, upskill and reskill, and develop their careers; it’s creating opportunities to embed learning into employees’ digital working lives. This report considers these changes, the technology behind them, the rising importance of employee experience and the cultural shift needed to enable a new mindset around learning.

More specifically it considers the convergence of L&D technologies with the wider digital workplace, shifts in learning after COVID-19 and the reskilling revolution that is underway in some organizations . Finally it includes two case studies from University of New South Wales and Semler Group, which illustrate the possibilities for digital workplace technologies, including smart integrations, social networking and AI-driven chatbots to help transform the learning experience..

About DWG research

The Digital Workplace Group (DWG) carries out research into best practice in intranet and portal deployment. Covering the hottest topics in the intranet world, the studies we undertake are rooted in practical examples from among DWG member organizations as well as leading non-member companies. The results of this in-depth research act as a basis for decision-making, a source of ideas, and the basis for rich interactions between participants at DWG meetings. Generally, members are given exclusive access to our findings, although we do from time to time make a report available to non-members.
