The Association for Talent Development (ATD) International Conference and Exposition is the biggest show of the year in the L&D industry. 10,000+ attendees. 300+ sessions. There’s pretty much something for everyone at the annual conference. The Axonify team had an awesome time at ATD 2017 earlier this week in Atlanta. We facilitated three sessions, met plenty of forward-thinking L&D professionals and shared our perspective on how to modernize workplace learning.
With an event this large, it’s usually impossible to sum up the experience in a short blog post. However, based on my observations this year, I can sum it up with one word: microlearning. While a variety of trending topics, such as games, augmented reality and xAPI, were well represented during the event, microlearning stood out from minute one and was a constant topic of conversation for four days.
