Designing Engaging Learning for a Hybrid Work Environment

Ann Rollins, a solutions architect for The Ken Blanchard Companies, isn’t surprised that Blanchard’s 2022 L&D Trends survey shows 53% of L&D respondents feel their virtual designs are not as effective as their face-to-face designs.

“We have a large number of people who, until February 2020, never had to design specifically for a digital/virtual environment. And if they did, it was usually PowerPoint and facilitator notes with a little chat and perhaps some breakouts.”

Rollins acknowledges there are a lot of challenges with designing virtual learning experiences that work.

“Every day I hear learning designs have to be less or have to be shorter. And clients tell me their culture is more ‘opt into learning’ versus a mandated schedule.”
