Program Description: 


We might agree that designing courses is not always the right solution, but then what are our options for accelerating learning for needed skill sets and important initiatives? In this interactive session, we’ll talk about emerging strategies for supporting learning and development, including interesting new overarching frameworks, evolving design strategies, advanced curation practices, and useful tactics for scaffolding self-directed learning.  You’ll leave with a variety of job aids and resources as well as a deeper appreciation for what is possible in modern contexts.
