At the end of his keynote speech to the Learning Technologies Conference 2016, futurist Ben…
Editor’s note: A short piece this but another reminder from a former senior HR director that the future of L&D will not be spoon-feeding training to colleagues.
Editor’s note: The CEO of Hootsuite, a social media management tool, says that in 2016 organisations will use their employees more to amplify their work – the technical term seems to be ’employee social advocacy’. Some interesting and realistic trends here.
Editor’s note: This concluding line sums up the thrust of this article: “It is high time to see ingenuity, craftsmanship, and connectivity as the critical differentiators, and move toward a future where we embrace and usher forward human-centered work.”
Editor’s note: The Learning and Performance Institute’s Donald Taylor looks at the future of L&D and where he thinks the L&D leadership role exists in organisations.

Editor’s note: John Seely Nbrown says that unlearning is an important part of learning. I like this line ‘While focusing on learning is fine, another real challenge is unlearning.

Editor’s note: Interesting that two of the seven facets of the future employee as outlined in this article are ‘Shifting from a knowledge to a learning worker’ and ‘Teaches and leans at will’. Begs the question: ‘What’s the future role of L&D if these are our future workers?”
Here are our highlights from the Chat2lrn Twitter chat on learning #trends for 2015. [View…
Editor’s note: This is a really interesting presentation from author and analyst Brian Solis. Does what it says on the tin and as such provides useful context for tech developments in the learning sector. Thanks to Jane Hart for sharing.

This might seem like a slightly left-field line of inquiry for L&D. But is it? L&D needs to be thinking about how jobs are changing. And maybe we also need to call out jobs that aren’t required, as anthropology professor David Graeber suggests.
Editor’s note: I thought this short list of trends touched on some of the more significant changes that technology is enabling in organisations and public life generally. In particular, it will be fascinating to see what the Uber effect has on the way organisations and economies work.
