Digital upskilling and lifelong learning in the new workspace

How confident are people in our organisations in using the tools that we give them? Tech fluency may not be at the level IT leaders assume it to be. Remote working and the digital acceleration of the last two years have only exacerbated the challenges of employee training and skills development.
Is anyone actually using intranet knowledge banks or learning portals? How useful are Digital Adoption Platforms (DAP) and Learning Management Systems (LMS)? Should we enlist the help of the more tech savvy employees as Super Users when we implement new applications?
Tracey Jessup has dealt with these issues with the Digital Academy program as CDIO at UK Parliament. She is now starting a new role as Chief Transformation Officer (CTO) at DeMontfort University. Join her for this Digital Boardroom Community Session where we will explore how to
- make better use of decreasing training budgets
- build a culture of continual learning and collaboration
- create a user-centred approach to learning
