Put Learners at the Centre of L&D With Personalized Learning [REPORT]

• 2 min read

Personalized learning probably exists in your business, whether you know it or not

You might have heard about personalized learning already, or maybe you’ve never heard about the concept before. But what you may not know is, you’re probably already using personalized learning elements in one way or another.

For those who don’t know, personalized learning is a learning and development approach that focuses squarely on the individual learner. Imagine a new employee walks through the doors for their first week on the job. As an L&D professional, do you hand them a stock company manual and training plan? Or do you sit down with the learner; discover their strengths, weaknesses, and career objectives; and develop a learning path that aligns with their personal needs?

Who Uses Personalized Learning?

The latter would be considered a personalized learning approach, and according to a recent Brandon Hall Group study, most organizations use some form of personalized learning in their L&D programs. While only 10% of respondents claimed to use personalized learning strategically in their learning strategy, a combined 84% indicated they used personalized learning strategically either most of the time or sometimes. Only 6% of respondents said they didn’t use personalized learning at all.
